Fixing Demand

While I’m fixing everything (see below), how about this:

I keep reading that the economy is being saved by consumer spending. The stock market is up 17% in the last few weeks because consumers are still spending.

It’s good to see the Wall Street types praising the economic value of consumer demand. Maybe this is a good time to push for policies that put more money into the hands of average Americans and increase consumer demand, like raising the minimum wage, increasing and extending unemployment benefits, job training programs, income redistribution programs like the Earned Income Tax Credit and other DEMAND SIDE government programs!
