Dr. Shelhamer - you (probably deliberately) skipped one obvious reason for high unemployment in the EU countries. They all have Liberal / Socialist governments with high tax rates and expensive social safety net policies. Why did you fail to list that?

A very refreshing change from the lectures and diatribes found in LTEs.

Where is the blame for the generational poor and terminally lazy who demand societies spend themselves into oblivion?

Sorry, if we are to "pull together", then the habitually poor and the consistently lazy will have to change as well.

Vince, how does China fit into the mix? Economically, they are very successful. To what do you attribute that success?

I’ll offer that China’s success is a result of moving their economic structure from Socialism toward Capitalism. We and the rest of the western world have stagnated as we’ve moved from Capitalism in the direction of Socialism. You’d think there’d be a lesson to be learned there.

Chinese do not have true capitalism. The state still has a stronger hold on the economy than the Western countries. Apparently Phil you are in favor of that.

Go back and read my post real slowly, Chuck. I said that China is moving in the direction of Capitalism. It’s idiotic to imply that I’m in favor of central planning. You’re achieving total pointlessness in your posts of late. You might want to step back and reconsider some of them.

"We must address the "root causes" of what is happening worldwide. Most dilemmas center on the lack of sound ethical practices in workplaces and poor moral disciplines amongst all people everywhere,"

+++

Sometimes the root cause in the world is the pursuit of the idol or god called money. Even in the church, there are those that are not content with what God provides nor do they bring the whole tithe into His house.

"But people who long to be rich fall into temptation and are trapped by many foolish and harmful desires that plunge them into ruin and destruction. For the LOVE [emphasis added] of money is the root of all kinds of evil." --1 Timothy 6:9-10a NIV

“No one can serve two masters. For you will hate one and love the other; you will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." --Matthew 6:24 NIV

It is your post that is pointless Phil. China is not moving to capitalism that is enjoyed in Western culture and economics. The Chineses government is not going to give up central control of the economy. They are not going to give up control of the banks nor of finances. China has become more open to private ownership of businesses but even that has strong government oversight and control. Foreign companies can open businesses there but they do not have the freedom they have in Western countries.

The argument has always been that capitalism can only thrive in a free society like America. China disproved that.

That would be a neat feat, my Mom is dead. But then that is how crass you are Bobbie. Actually according to you Bobbie no one on the left would wear shoes with laces they would be 'loafers'.
