Comments on: The brain science behind gambling with the debt ceiling Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 By: coyotle Tue, 19 Jul 2011 03:14:41 +0000 Gambling is treated as an addiction for most people. Evidently it is a qualification for promotion or hire in the finance industry. We should not be surprised the trait occurs in politics. Clearly the decisions of law makers can break or make industries.

Economics is based on trust and fidelity, not competition and greed.
The exchange of goods and services depends on sufficient funds to provide the needs for the exchange of goods and services. The funds must be available before the goods and services can be exchanged.
The demand side of economics comes first, providing the demand for supplies, then the supply side of economics comes second from the funds available to demand those goods and services.
Without an efficient means of the exchange of goods and services, supplies are not available and services are not rendered. The result is that the nation is unable to support its population and the people are subjected to unnecessary poverty and mental anguish.

By: Davidrj54 Mon, 18 Jul 2011 10:57:56 +0000 I do not know HOW the people Expect the Government to be Responsible for THE DEBT build up!
US Debt:
1990 – $1 Trillion
2000 – $5 Trillion
2008 – $10 Trillion
2011 – $14 Trillion
2020 – $23 Trillion to $26 Trillion
This Debt is NOT the Debt of the Leaders.
Why would they want to clean it when they think they did not CAUSE it?
Why would you expect them to Solve it when the HAVE not done so in the last 30 years?
Why would they Want to clean it when Wall Street and the Bankers run the Congress?
Everybody’s Problem is Nobody’s Problem! SIMPLE LOGIC !
