Horse Sense Economics 101.5

Play the consumer card.

I keep reading that the economy won't recover until the American consumer decides to start spending again.

Fellow consumer: make your voice heard. If bankers can hold the economy hostage, so can you. Don't start spending until something you want is put into effect. For me, it'll be guaranteeing the safety of food and dry goods - staff up, regulate, inspect, enforce, and penalize violations heavily to fund it all.

I've been following this issue for years. It's convenient, politically expedient and profitable to neglect safety and settle for acceptable loss. Until it becomes unacceptable.

Mainer, New Yawka, Beijinger, Californian, points between. News, views and ballyhoos that piqued my interest and caused me to sigh, cry, chuckle, groan or throw something.
