    • Steady-state economy is not a new model. The book "Population Bomb" was required reading in my college days 30 years ago. It said if we had continuous growth, we wouldd run out of every natural resource in 20-30 years. Today we have a surplus of any resource including houses. If you want no growth, just look at Japan. they are into their 3rd lost decade.
      Reviving housing market and our economy need real demand for growth. Changing rule to allow more LEGAL immigrants in to buy houses proposed 2 years ago may still be the ticket for a new source of demand:

    • Will do Jerry. Thanks for the tip.

    • A strong, self-reliant people aren't as profitable to the controlling corporate interest...

      enjoy,

      They just don’t get it. The desperation to perpetuate a collapsing system rather than prepare for the inevitable is astonishing. We spend billions to prepare for a potential terrorist attack but ask someone what their local government is doing to prepare for an economic collapse and they respond by saying, that can never happen.

    • he may be right about our economic situation and right about how to increase consumption...but he is not addressing larger issues. We are on a collision course with reality. If we keep trying to extract as many resources out of the earth and treating her like an infinitely large garbage pail, the human species will soon (relative terms) be extinct.

      Given this dire situation AND given that we have many that are not working....it's time everyone works to create sustainable, resilient communities with LOCAL commerce. Technically, it could easily be done. Politically...that's a different story. A strong, self-reliant people aren't as profitable to the controlling corporate interest...

    • As mtyride said above. The man is spot on, whether anyone likes it or not. He has been right over and over again when others have completely missed the boat. If he is right, which is very likely, it doesn't matter what we think. I is amazing how annoying he is, but again, if he is right nothing else matters. You can all argue until the cows come home.

    • Biggest d-bag on the boards bar none. His hatred and anger are amusing though. Not to be outdone by his ignorance.

    • The individuals of this nation need to SAVE and INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY

      ***************************

      Please explain how you do both.

      Now join the other Americans that have NO CLUE!

    • Yeah, I'm the political moron - you, on the other hand are a genius. Newsflash, genius: wealth is created, and it's created by free market economies and CAPITALISM.

      *******************************************


      Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha, please stop it.

      What planet are you on?

      Where did the capital come from to give to the banks?

      Stupidity is astonishing. It is no wonder this country is going down.

    • It's obvious from this thread that most of the American public, including most on this board, have zero clue re the underlying problems (even though Schiff spells it out for you) and/or how to 'solve' the current problem.

      But do not feel inferior as EVERY fiat currency in history has failed, re of whether the economy is "democratic", "free market" (which we sure as heck are not), communism, fascist, dictator.
      The individuals of this nation need to SAVE and INCREASE PRODUCTIVITY. That will not happen any time in the near future because the great majority of Americans are on entitlements. Their major concern is to keep the entitlement check, stamp, medicare/welfare card coming to their mailbox. Any politician voting against said entitlements will never get reelected.

      It is too late to prevent the USA from falling over the cliff. When we hit the canyon floor, and only then, things will change.

      20 years form now we will rise again - but only temporarily. Hopefully we will be back on a gold standard before that time, and future legislators will not be as dumb and corrupt as our present 'leaders'...............

    • Yeah, I'm the political moron - you, on the other hand are a genius. Newsflash, genius: wealth is created, and it's created by free market economies and CAPITALISM.

      Commies and socialists like yourself have the misguided, simple-minded notion that there is somehow a limited supply of wealth, only so many dollars, or francs, or resources, to go around - and so when someone gets rich, it automatically means someone else gets poorer.

      (Yeah, I know - you're going to give me a lecture now on how natural resources ARE limited - DUH - I'm talking about resources of ALL kinds - ideas, inventions, the things that HAVE made men - and nations - wealthy, IF and WHEN they're allowed to bring their ideas to fruition and gasp! - PROFIT from them.)

      "Thinking" like yours is what's been used for centuries to enslave the masses. The founders of the U.S.A. understood that people should be free of this kind of thinking, free to create their own lives w/out govt. intervention and over-regulation.

      But a lib-dem commie like you couldn't possibly understand such things. I suppose you're one of these genius "progressives" who thinks the U.S. Constitution is outdated as well, right?
