It is impossible and that's not an opinion, it's a fact. Yet week after week, I read newspapers and magazines talking as they too believe it's possible. The only thing our gov't can do is throw money at the problem. Ask any economist, banker, business owner or even "Politician" to spell out EXACTLY how our economy can be fixed, and you'll get a 1,000 different ideas. Why? Because no one knows how to fix it. Recessions are not supposed to be "Fixed" any more than "Booms" should be fixed. They are both natural cycles. The only reason this recession/depression is so bad is because our gov't added gasoline to our economy and artificially inflated it WAY above it's natural level. So it's only natural this recession is matching the previous boom. The only thing our gov't can do is screw up the economic cycles. And the more that is done, the longer this recession/depression will last. Even NY Mayor Bloomberg is calling for gov't action and predicting RIOTS if nothing is done. Jobs crisis may spark riots - New York City Mayor Bloomberg - Sep. 16, 2011 "The unemployment rate is 9.1%, but many experts say that figure is misleading. They prefer to use the so-called underemployment rate, which includes people who have given up their search for jobs as well as people who want to work full-time but are forced to work part-time. The underemployment rate is 16.2%" BTW...Both the 9.1% number and the 16.2% number are OFFICIAL government numbers that come from official gov't reports on unemployment. The 9.1% is called the U3 definition and the 16.2% is the U6 definition of unemployment directly from the weekly gov't report.
