Comments on: What to make of the U.S. resurgence http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2011/01/12/what-to-make-of-the-u-s-resurgence/ Wed, 16 Nov 2016 01:37:11 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: WillShirley http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/2011/01/12/what-to-make-of-the-u-s-resurgence/comment-page-1/#comment-14253 Thu, 20 Jan 2011 11:39:55 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate-uk/?p=8999#comment-14253 The unemployment rate, the REAL rate, in NYC is around 25%. New college graduates packing $100K in student loan debt find two years of looking for work is not enough. My daughter and her friends help one another find part time work, almost enough to live on if not for the student loans. We help her by using my retirement checks for her loans, but my retirement checks cover about 1/2 of the loan payments. In America it is more important to funnel billions of dollars into banks rather than provide free education for the next generation like any rational society would do. The situation is made worse when the Lawmakers decided that a bank can go bankrupt for cheating their customers for years, but a struggling new graduate is prohibited from filing bankruptcy. They must pay back the loans even if they have to sell a kidney or two for the money. America cares not a whit for it’s future citizens and if they are smart the kids will find a way to leave the country to raise their families in civilized environments.

There is no U.S. resurgence until Congress re-introduces a Glass-Steagall standard and returns to the infrastructure-building initiatives of the FDR era, such as NAWAPA and the JFK manned space flight programs.
