One of the many problems with this extremely slow growth is the jobs being created are more towards the lower wage so called service sector, that sector that doesn’t really produce a product but the workers try and still give a quality job while getting low wages and few benefits and seek respect for what they do.

This is designed to be a companion piece to a new Pique the Geek installment of the same title that will be published Sunday. The idea for this dual treatment of gold was inspired by our good friend and supporter from the other two sites to which I contribute, ek hornbeck.
This half of the couple has to do with gold in a nontechnical sense. The one on Sunday gets, obviously, much more Geeky. However, technical uses aside, gold has been part of the popular culture since prehistory. Only recently have truly technical uses for gold been found, and those will be covered elsewhere.
Tonight we shall look at some of the history of gold in popular culture, and finish with a discussion of the so-called gold standard and the numerous sales pitches that dominate the conservative airwaves. We shall try not to get too Geeky.

When Talking About The Economy Now And The So Called ‘Capitalism Practiced’ Start Calling It Exactly What It Is, “Reaganomics”, i.e. ‘trickle down’ ‘free market’…………, there’s a hole host of meme’s used that sold this Con of what must be in order to advance? which when implemented was forecast by many then and over the years, last couple of decades, to do Exactly What It Did, Collapse The Once Growing and Proud Economic Reality That Was!!
Have no idea why those who are supposed to represent the working people don’t use the reality and voice it over and over, do know why th media don’t, they profit from not reporting the reality!

Greetings folks, the start of new week and thus we kick off another episode of Manufacturing Monday! Never a dull moment when it comes to covering stuff that either goes into the products you buy, or the impact that that consumption leads to. Now originally, I had these other items on bio-fuels, hydrogen cars, China and oil, and a few other things. But I see now that my section on the bailout of the US automakers is so big, that the whole thing is too long. So, if it is OK with you, I will post those items tomorrow.
