A thread that wandered into a rewarding series of thoughtful posts
This thread began as a comment on an opinion article by William Kristof of the NY Times. It is no longer that. The community discussion has contributed some grander ideas that should be assigned precedence.
NY Times Aug 27, 2011, “Did We Drop the Ball on Unemployment?”
And, of course, mentioning the unemployed should bring up sympathy for the unfortunates with the hope that something could be done to help them. After all they are victims, are they not? Through no fault of their own, pushed aside as expendable, then told that their jobs would never come back. Where does that leave them?
The first response which called the Fed to task for its misleading assumptions and pretenses all generated out of its own mid-directed self-importance is hereby erased and we'll seque into the community discussion that resulted without attempting to classify it.
All are invited to read on and hope it continues to reward.
