    Well now, we wouldn't want a return to boom and bust would we?

    Surely we dont need any other "boom and bust" anytime soon but we need at least 0% or 0.01% growth sooner rather than later.....

    Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God? - Epicurus

    That’s a good point worth a discussion of it’s own. Here in NL we have an ageing population and a workforce that’s expected to shrink. There’s no way we can keep on producing economic growth without facing severe downturns simply because productivity doesn’t grow fast enough to cancel out the effects of a shrinking workforce. If we have 0% growth we’ll be fine; 4%, as has become expected year on year, is just not realistic without a rapidly growing population.

    I am one, so I would be a hypocrite to contradict you on that issue.

    NL is due for its worse economic year since 1931 - so I read.

    True, but when it recovers companies will once again complain about how hard it is to find qualified staff.

    2 million unemployed announced today. I bet its 3 million if you count all the middle class workers who are too proud to sign on yet.

    The global depression has only just started. After a bear market rally, the Stock Indices will plough to new depths. I foresee civil unrest in the not too distant future.
