Uhh, all eyez, you got that backward. When the economy goes up, inflation goes down.
Inflation is created by beurocrats who try to spend their way out of a recession. The government doesn't have more money to spend, so it just prints more money. This, in turn, devalues the dollar, which is what's going on right now. So, with the dollar worth less, stuff costs more. Voila, inflation!
Here's a novel idea: A defecit can be created in two ways: Spend more than you take in or take in less than you spend. They've tried spending more and jobless rates keep going up. How about giving everyone a tax holiday for a while, take in less and see where that gets us? Hmm, no federal income tax. Talk about an economy boost.
One more thing and then I'm done: Increasing taxes on the "rich" has only negative effects. "Rich" people don't hoard their money, they spend it and they invest it. Give them tax breaks and they will have more money for jobs, more money to buy raw materials from other businesses, more money for buying consumer goods. More money spent means more tax money for government!
This is like second grade stuff. Why congress can't figure it out amazes me.
Sorry for the rant but I just want people to be more aware of what is going on so we can fight for our freedoms and so we can all afford awesome wakeboats. Good news at Mastercraft!
