Comments on: Yellen looks toward a Keynesian approach Sat, 03 Jan 2015 16:42:55 +0000 hourly 1 By: nickir Mon, 17 Mar 2014 02:20:46 +0000 A great country like yours? Who says? The 1930s depression was caused by anti Keynesian economics. And the Republicans (the party of the rich?) have been doing it again – thank god not as successfully. If the problems were confined to the US it would be bad enough. But you are used to an underclass. We aren’t.

By: YONATAN Wed, 12 Mar 2014 05:07:53 +0000 It must be nice to be a Republican senator, with a generous salary, and health benefits, and government perks. They can take their time playing “party politics’, while these poor unemployed workers , are left struggling to provide for their families, without unemployment benefits. It’s always easier to look the other way, or to point a finger to blame the victims for their circumstance. The Republican party who prides itself on being “the party for family values”, have not approved an unemployment extension, for several times, since late December. Each time the bill was proposed by the Democrats, the Republican party voted it down in the senate. There are more than two million unemployed workers, with families, who have since had to face eviction, home foreclosures, bankruptcy, and many families are now homeless. How sad in a great country such as ours, where tax payer’s dollars pay for corporate welfare, and Foreign Aid, bank bailouts, and Airline bailouts, but not spent on the average American in need of help. Why is this? Shame on the Republican Party for not having the compassion, and common decency to help their fellow man in need. They will be remembered in the 2016 election I am sure

Good commentary, but I did not know that employment was actually looking up.

My understanding was that the labor participation rate was still unimproved.

This article missed telling us about the Global Warming disaster befalling most of North America this year. It would have fit right.

Perhaps Mr Kaletsky can fill us in on the wonders of the ACA, AKA Obamacare in his next love-fest for all the wondrous achievements of progressive crony capitalism.

No thanks, I prefer prosperity and the is not what we have now unless you live in DC. Where is Milton Friedman when we need him? 001424052702304027204579334610097660366? KEYWORDS=more+men+in+their+prime
