Build a road; yes that will affect tptisrortaanon and can help our economy grow, but the effects will not be felt over night. Once again I am stating things Government can do to help the economy grow almost immediately.The other way the government can grow the economy almost immediately is to increase spending, provided that increase is not completely offset by short-run tax increases. Remember, GDP = C + I + G + NX.Then the question we should be asking ourselves is, what do our current circumstances and long-run circumstances dictate? I would argue that in a (rare) situation like this one, they dictate an increase in government spending and a suspension of tax increases.Though I don't see how anything anonymous pointed out can cut cost.Infrastructure is an input. Investment in infrastructure is a way of increasing short run fixed costs across the board for long run decreases in marginal cost of everything. Further, government has a place in making sure that markets remain competitive and innovative, which is not something that comes naturally to certain types of markets. That's how.Ford Motor Company built a revolutionary production plant in Brazil that can help them make cheaper cars. The UAW won't let them build such a plant in America.Let's hear the full story. A link would be great.I see Texas growing not just in the Service Sector, but in Many areas, such as technology, manufacturing,and medical research.With the exception of manufacturing, those are the industries I was referring to. Modern high growth industries that have nothing to do with unions one way or another. States that are heavily unionized tend to be heavily manufacturing based. That's the confounding variable I was referring to. As to manufacturing growth in Texas, I'd like to see numbers before I believe it.If Conservationism is flawed then why in 2007 53% of all Jobs created in America were created in Texas and then again in 2008 70% of all jobs created were in Texas?You've taken one data point and drawn a line through it. From June of 2008 to June of 2009, the unemployment rate of Texas nearly doubled. The number of jobs created is a noise variable in that case. The lost jobs (and lots of them), just like everybody did. If your thesis is as strong as you suggest, how do you explain the data about the crazy liberal states I pointed to? The reality is that the pattern you're attempting to see in the data simply isn't there.But when I look around the world the poorest nations are the most polluted, the wealthier the cleaner.There's a reason for that: The poor nations are at the pre-pollution regulation stage of their development. The wealthy nations aren't. They have put those regulations in place. You're correct that the reason they do it is because they're wealthy enough to do so. What I don't see is the argument that somehow the US falls into the category of too poor to regulate its pollution. So I don't have a answer for that argument, but I do know that any action must be measured and should not drastically raise production cost which is what the Cap and Trade bill will do.Let's see your numbers.I cringe every time I hear something that sounds like protectionism. Tariffs? Haven't we learned from the history of the Great Depression?A carbon tariff has nothing to do with protectionism. Its purpose is not to grow the local economy. The purpose is to make sure that we pay the price of carbon. Taxing pollution locally makes no sense if we're just going to import it. If you tax carbon $1 and a person can save $1 by importing, they'll import and you won't make a dent in carbon. If you tax the import of carbon $1, the incentive goes away and the production happens wherever it would have happened in the absence of a carbon tax. You either do both or neither. Doing just one is dumb.Labor Farms? I'll have you know that China is seeing a huge growth in Middle Class.That's not relevant to my point. China has insufficient local demand to keep its economy booming if the first world nations suffer from a collapse of demand. They live and die by exports. Don't expect them to be a shining beacon of property in that case.But what's your solution? Borrow the money to maintain our standard of living or make the money through Production?I'm not sure what you're asking. In the short run, my solution is for the government to borrow at the low rates available to it and stimulate the economy by investing in cheap infrastructure in order to get us out of our unemployment trap. In the long run, I don't know what problem I'm being asked to solve.Explain to me how government taking any action that makes it harder to produce helping our economy grow.I think we've discussed this. When the government takes tax money, it doesn't just burn it. It spends it on goods and services in the economy. The supply side sees an increase in cost and the demand side increases by an equal amount. The question is the relative efficiency of how the money is spent. For example, if we take tax dollars to spend on health care and that displaces a comparable amount of private spending on health care, the net impact is negligible.If tax cuts are good enough for the liberals of Hollywood then why isn't it good enough for other Industries? Oooh! Liberal Hollywood bogey man! Booga booga! He's going to get you!

Boy you and I have the same taste in books! How cool well anyways, I think you shulod try A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith and any of Mitch Albom's books (they're all great they make you look at life in a diffferent way)! Since you've read Da Vinci Code you shulod also try Angels Demons . If you want to try something new like teens kinds of books the A-List and the Clique is a good place to start (you might also want to check out Gossip Girl). And for Meg Cabot, you can't miss All-American Girl or the sequel Ready or Not ! So good luck with the reading and I hoped this comment helped!
