Ghosts of econs past, present and future
Ghosts of econs past, present and future

Ghosts of economists past, present and yet to come (again) sing along in the spirit of Christmas on this video:

It’s a great video that gets the big question right – is more consumption or production the path to prosperity? I know that sounds stupid, but economists tends to obsess over the former and pay lip service to the latter.This distorted thinking flows through to government policy, resulting in the current debt induced macro mess.

While it’s a shame much of the profession did not watch such a witty clip in first year, it would profit from an even greater emphasis on production. Having your savings squandered by someone else on more “toys” is not a path to prosperity. It matters little if our bankers bonuses go on ferraris,  yachts or more homes. They will not generate a sufficient future income stream to reward the saver.

It’s productive investment which is the key. Or more precisely, attempted active productive investment. Look around, are your savings being invested in income producing assets which will fund your future comfort? Or are they being squandered on government white elephants and crony capitalist excesses?

But this is all too long and serious for an excellent video clip. Watch it, have a laugh and possibly even learn something

  14. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
