Does that mean that European airlines will get money from the US and that there will be an A330 "gas station" for the USAF?
I sincerely hope not! The first half because the US is not responsible for the health of other countries airlines, even due to our own ground-stop, and the second half because it's strategically moronic...
Amazing he even gives a damn since he exports so many jobs over-seas as it is.
Last I checked, it was corporations sending jobs overseas, not the President... Face it, the President can't create jobs, he can only help Congress create an environment where jobs are more likely to be created.
I'm also curious to see how John Kerry expects to add 10 million jobs when there are only 7 million unemployed people... I've done the math and reasonable projections, and it just can't be done without record unemployment levels...
Y'know, just fifteen years ago, "full employment" was considered 94%, or 6% unemployment. Today, we stand at 5.5%. We've never had unemployment fall below 5% for more than a few years, and usually it hovers between 6% and 7%... From that perspective, perhaps the recent loss of jobs isn't due to a bad economy, but a self-righting economy that had ballooned with non-viable Tech-sector jobs in companies that were not economically sustainable.
But what do I know? I'm just a 23 year old Marketing student with an above-average IQ
who likes to read a lot...
Anyway, at a time when the trade defecit is growing steadily, in other words we are buying more than we are selling
People always complain about this, but the fact is, our economy continues to grow even as the trade deficits increase. Why? Because we in the US are damn good at creating wealth. Besides which, manufacturing goods now account for less
than half of our economy. We're not an industrial society. We're a post
Don't get me wrong, minimizing deficits is good, but we don't have to be net-plus in this area...
As for your other comments, Dfw, I must agree fully... A fair, bilateral agreement about subsidization and other factors must be created. At the very least, the existing agreement should be ammended to reflect the now relatively even split between the two companies.
