The only real remedy for the long-term (and other) unemployed is to have the economy grow fast, as it did after the severe recession in 1982 when unemployment peaked in December of that year at 10.8%, and then fell rather rapidly. There is no magic bullet to accomplish this, but I do believe it would help a lot if the leaders in Washington did not try to radically transform various aspects of the economy while we are recovering from a serious recession, and thereby magnify the high degree of uncertainty that is typically caused by a recession. Instead, they should be concentrating on fighting the recession, and stimulating ...
although the popular belief is that the Great Depression was caused by the crash of the stock market. The specific economic events that took place during the Great Depression have been studied thoroughly: a deflation in asset and commodity prices, dramatic drops in demand and credit, and disruption of trade, ultimately resulting in widespread unemployment and hence poverty. However, historians lack consensus in describing the causal relationship between various events and the role of government economic policy in causing or ameliorating the Depression. Current theories may be broadly classified into two main areas. First, there ...

The income tax is the fairest and most equitable of the taxes. It is the one tax which approaches us in the hour of prosperity and departs in the hour of adversity. Certainly it will be conceded by all that the great expense of government is in the protection of property and of wealth. There is no possible argument founded in law or in morals why these protected interests should not bear their proportionate burden of government. —William E. Borah, July 17, 1909 Let the wage earner take heart. The eight-hour day will come, and come soon, to all the workers of every state in the nation. —Robert M.

No quick fixes for school spending
The Press & Sun-Bulletin performed a public service in publishing a series of informative articles on school budgets, statewide school aid cuts and impacts on taxpayers leading up to last Tuesday's school budget and board elections. However, the coverage focused disproportionately on short-term fixes to this year's state aid shortfall, such as tapping into reserve funds, allowing vacant positions to go unfilled, trimming materials and supplies, and cutting back on clubs and class trips, while minimally addressing the structural causes or cures of chronic overspending by school districts. Based on my review of thousands ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Great Depression in the United States at AllExperts
was a period where economic activity was stagnant and at an all time low in many countries of the world. The effects of the stock market crash of 1929 that ensued in the Great Depression in the United States lasted from the end of 1930 to the late 1930's. A 1995 survey of economists and economic historians asked if, "Taken as a whole, government policies of the New Deal served to lengthen and deepen the Great Depression." While 27% of economists agreed and 51% disagreed, only 6% of economic historians agreed and 74% disagreed, the rest were in the partly agree/disagree group. See [ 1 ] The Wall Street Crash of 1929
