Americans and their economy

Passed along in email:

Three-quarters of Americans are living paycheck-to-paycheck and have little or no savings cushion if a job loss or medical emergency should occur.

Meanwhile, senior citizens in almost every state are falling seriously short when it comes to living out their "golden years."

Economists sometimes proclaim themselves to be "disappointed" by such findings.

If economists are "disappointed," just imagine what those experiencing such conditions are.

  1. Capitalism is touted as the great creator of wealth. But it seems pretty piss poor for the maintenance of anything.
