Response to Recursion (Original post)

6. The consumer is holding up our economy


We are a consumer-driven economy, so what we decide to do with that portion of our income that doesn't go to essentials is very important. As you suggest, this gives us more power than most of us recognize.

Our politicians don't fear us. I doubt they care about the marches. But if we implement our own "sanctions" in a strategic way, our outrage would be felt. Guarantee it.

Secondly, this economy will suffer eventually, one way or another. Personally, I would rather the "recession" begin on Trump's watch rather than under the watch of our next Democratic president.

If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
