    What makes you think state governments can create adequate productive work for everyone who is willing to work? Even with the stimulus money, it took ages to get projects underway.

    When planners know they are implementing a long term program that will stay in place to mitigate the effects of the business cycle, not a short term stimulus, they can do a much better job and get better at it over time. Stimulus implementation was basically a short term emergency operation done by people who had little or no experience in
    implementation of such complicated and large emergency programs. And the “shovel-ready” political spin didn’t help because it falsely raised expectations. With a permanent program it would not take ages to get projects underway because it is a continual process. Also, many infrastructure projects can be made more labor intensive if creating labor opportunities is part of the goal. Private business needs to cut labor cost by replacing humans with mechanical labor to compete for profits. With the profit motive suspended, the state infrastructure agency can increase the use of human labor and decrease reliance on machines. Yes, it would take longer to complete projects, but that isn’t important because the goal is full employment and general prosperity, not corporate profit. Trust me, a lot of strong young construction workers are out of work, depressed, probably drinking too much. Also, give people full-time work at a living wage and the cost savings in other government services for physical and mental health, law enforcement, etc., would be significant – maybe even huge. People don’t really want to be fat couch potatoes, it’s too depressing. People want to succeed.

    sadly… the Federal government does not create dollars… the Federal Reserve does… and they lend those dollars to the nation.. every dollar of which must be serviced by long term placed on the tax payer…
    and what is worse… is that today… the value of the dollar is based on GDP production in relation to dollars in circulation, therefore when and if the government prints more money… it lowers its value because its not real money it is debt based fiat currency.
    We can fix this problem…. by nationalizing the federal reserve… SO THAT IT IS.. IS.. OWNED BY THE PEOPLE.
    RIGHT NOW… IT IS OWNED BY INVESTORS… NOT THE PEOPLE.

    i OFFER A PLAN TO SOLVE THE ENTIRE ISSUE OF CURRENCY… WHICH THEN WOULD ALLOW EVERYTHING THIS DOCUMENT SAYS…. TO BE POSSIBLE…. but right now… it cannot happen over the long term.

    real money is the solution.
