Trifecta: Week 102 ~ Economic Governance!

Debt all around the world is an incapacitating weakness that makes the poor poorer.

The governments craft the economy with guile to keep the cost of living high and interest on saving’s low.

Most countries in world are now a consumer economy. The media and politicians manipulate the society to borrow, spend, and get into debt. If people are spending money they do not have, the economy will struggle in the long run. Most personal and government borrowing is not for investment, but for consumption.  Eliminate poor to combat poverty.

The two professors bickered incessantly. God knows why they had got   gotten married.

She had switched off all the lights sharp at 8.30 in spite of protestations from her husband – the Professor of Economics.

She was a Professor of Social Works and an ardent environmentalist.

PE – There is a blackout most of the times so this hardly makes sense (he lighted the lamp).

PSW – This is the least we can do about our deteriorating environment.

PE – Environmentalism is the current religion.

PSW – No, please not again.

PE – OK. , but it sure is sound politics and good business.

Thanks for the prompt  Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. Salaam 🙂


So much tax, so little return.

When most employees start thinking that they are the rulers, it is time for those paying the salary bills to give it a second thought…

Although this forward is about the US, I think this is the story of most countries…



Salary of retired US Presidents ………….$180,000 FOR LIFE

Salary of House/Senate …………………..$174,000 FOR LIFE This is stupid

Salary of Speaker of the House ………….$223,500 FOR LIFE This is really stupid

Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders ……. $193,400 FOR LIFE Ditto last line

Average Salary of a teacher …………… $40,065

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN AFGHANISTAN ……. $38,000

I think we found where the cuts should be made!

PS – I received this in my mail. The salary discrepancies are as bad in India with extensive perks …….. and these had become viral at one time.You can view the toons as a slide show too. YS
