There is no recession right around the corner. The US GDP for the third quarter of 04 increased 4 percent, and rose 3.8% in the 4th. Those are not signs of a recession. (By the way, GDP is Gross Domestic Product, or, a measuring stick of how the economy is doing).

New comers are what you have to worry about, not a declining economy.

I knew my choice of ECON as a major would pay of eventually, who knew it would be an internet lawnsite.

Not to mention all of the people that we are learning about who are not even intentionally becoming suicide bombers. Many of them think that they are being paid to do something else and when they drive their vehicle to the right place, it is blown up by terrorists behind them in another vehicle.

Maslow's hierarchy of needs came up in another thread and here it is again. It is amazing what people will do in order to satisfy the most basic needs of themselves and their families.

I have been reading this site for a long time and Dennis is no idiot. If I needed a piece of equipment diagnosed, I can't think of anyone better.

He is entitled to his opinion, whether based on a degree or not. Yes the economy is rolling along, but there are serious imbalances in payments (check your exchange rate recently?) that are starting to drag on that same growth.

I also have an economics degree, and work in accounting all week. I am enough of an economist to know when to say that I don't know where things are headed. Anyone who says they know is kidding themselves..

Correct, my thread was just a vision of where we are going, there are to many variable to know, but with strategic planning, those visions and goals become reality.

my opinion is still the same.... Um... Sure

Do you think they would stop blowing themselves up if we sent them more jobs? More money? It is a fact that we already have been sending more jobs and more money to them and guess what they are doing? They are try to kill us more they ever have before.

Ok

You're entitled to your opinion and so am I.

Most of them ain't blowing themselves up for free. So yes, I believe that if they had work, there would be far fewer of them.

Just my opinion.

There is only a small percentage of oil in Alaska per US needs, the likes of which we could leave there, and just get more efficient, instead of being complacent like Americans notoriously are.

Bummer, Today I had a job schedule to blow myself up for $125.00 and wouldn't you know it but some lowballer came and did it for $100.00

Lighten up guys. If we all just do our part to hold up the economy, that will help a lot.
I'm lucky as I am an old fart that will be close to death before our economy fails too much but you kids had better look at ways to support it and work at holding it together. For every dollar you spend, think of where that money is going and if it will help or hurt.
