    I have a offer letter that was signed by me and the CEO. I have been working there for about two months. There are perks in the offer letter that are due to me, but the company is not honoring them. Has anyone been through this? What obligations do they have to fulfill its offer. I mentioned to them, that it was your offer that you created. Why would they not fulfill them. What legalities are there when it comes to the terms in the offer letter?

    I’m just asking because I don’t get how some have came to the conclusion that this is the best that we can do. It seems to go against what the founding fathers wanted (for the most part), Wilson regretted signing them into existence. The dollar has been going down in purchasing power for many decades, is that desirable? It may be natural for this system but, from a common sense perspective I don’t see how this is the best way to go about it.

    I’ve noticed many people blame Bush, Obama and occasionally Reagan for our recent economic recession. Do you really believe the president has control of an economy? Why or why not?

    The 1930’s saw one after all the reckless excess of the 1920’s, so is this a likely occurrence in the near future?

    Also, have HIGH ENEGRY COSTS helped a lot to move the economy in that direction?

    Also who swallows the costs of overnight high gasoline price spikes in the USA?

    Where does the money come from, how is this paid for….more credit?

    Please no “Gas has always been high in Europe or ___” type answers please, since this is focused on the USA and the world by default of economic impact.

    So, USA depression similar to or WORSE than the 1930’s or not?

    If not, then why?

    If so then why?

    Thank you.

    Technically, my understanding is that you have to have two quarters of a falling GNP to have a “recession”.

    However, the signs seem troubling to say the least.

    How do we snap out of it?

    Tax breaks to help business create jobs?
    Flat Tax?

    Honestly….I’m incredibly non-partisan when it comes to the economy. I’m just freestyling here.

    Opinions? Thoughts? Dreams?

    For those like me who use the Dow Jones as a thermometer that reflects the nation’s economy, it would appear that there is a little light at the end of the tunnel. What are your thoughts?

    Are we heading for a depression? How bad are things going to get? Are there any good points about it? Are prices going up or down? I thought they were going down but petrol’s going up? Are food prices going down?

    With the rising cost of fuel, food, rent, and a prevalent rise in unemployment already upon us… and so many people who have already been laid off due to economic hardship, (my husband included). And the fact that so many more people are selling everything they own just to make it. Are we in the very beginning of another depression? Can someone clarify the signs of the two and their differences? It’s really scary already!

    I want to know why people are so adamantly saying to “get out of debt” when you ask what to do to prepare yourselves for whatever is coming? What can happen if you can’t? Will there be debtor’s prisons again or will we all be forgiven or something else? What can we expect? There are millions of people in the US that are in credit card debt, what can/will the government do? And why are others saying “I’m going to run up ALL my cards stocking up for the upcoming depression”. What are the facts, what is the law it these circomstances?
    Ok, but what will happen to those of us who ARE in debt? What can they do? There are millions of Americans in debt and it’s growing not shrinking? That’s my real question.

    I was wondering how this recession actuall started. I dont understand that a single company (Lehman brothers) can influence the global economy. According to the reports this is the worst economic crisis in 60 years. Can a single company change the world economics so much. If America is having economic problem then how can India effect. And how does it affect the rest of the world.

    If a few companies have the control over world economics then it is very very dangerous

    I would much rather their be a system that doesn’t need any taxes. Sadly, the world has to have taxes and the redistribution of income, in my mind. I think it is our duty to provide basic things for the people of this earth. If they want to be lazy, then they won’t ever get much more than the basic things. Most people are happy to work if they know they are appreciated and are paid okay.

    I think that the core problem in this world is that there is a lack of structure. Everybody pulls and pushes on political issues but no real solution has been offered in my eyes that would really stabalize the world and lead to the following:

    an increase in the overall intelligence of the world’s people (this would decrease poverty and crime and lead to increase in quality of life) and an increase in the average intelligence of each individual,

    a decrease in poverty and the extremes of poverty (once again this would decrease crime)

    an increase in the appreciation of the workers of the world and the increase of quality of products/ services,

    the efficient allocation of natural resources,

    and the management of population.

    The problem is that some of the things I just listed can sound really scary if they are done the wrong way. I don’t think people should be told how many children to have. I think that a world should exist where we don’t have to worry about things like this because there would be a place for all these people. I could go on, but I will stick with what I have written.

    So, How do YOU propose?
    I realize I have mispellings in my question.
    Doug, I am self reliant. What are you even talking about?
    Hwinum, so, because you are quite pessimistic, you must be quite old?

    That is not a good argument.

    If you think that the Fed should be ended, why?

    Well I guess it is safe to say that we are offically in a recession. However, some are claiming that we are in a real bad situation, while others think it is not that bad and will get better.

    My question is, what do you think of our current economy and our future? Also, are we better off now than we were at the end of the “dot com” boom, which was our last recession?

    most profitable jobs for which they are qualified- generally- correct?
    Not many people would choose to die by decapitation from mortar or from horrendous tropical disease if they had better choices. At some point do you not feel a responsibility to your country to at least work a civillian job which could play major benefit? Damn, people die for their country- this is the least you could do, right? (But i’m not specifically talking about jobs which a person would be averse to)

    Though this may be a silly time to ask this question, I must! I haven’t quite been able to grasp this reality as of yet, and the only sign of change (for the bad) that I’ve noticed is the rise is gas and food prices. Anything that I’m over-looking, please inform me. I am truely a politically ignorant person. If you can give a head start to understading more, I’ll put forth more effort to becoming aware.

    Thank You 🙂
    EDIT: tacotorch…No i have not been living under a rock. there hasn’t beena change in my household financial wise and my mother (single mom) doesn’t complain, or make comments about gas prices or other things.

    How will we know that the economy is in a Depression.
    I already notice businesses closing down everywhere and tons of houses for sale
    that say “bank owned.” What are the signs of a pending economic collapse?

    A recession is a sign of the contraction of the economy while contradictingly, inflation is usually associated with economic growth thus the increase in aggrgrate demand and subsequent increase in general price level. Is it because a recession is a short term effect relative to inflation, which happens due to forecast of long term economic growth?

    for some reason, Conservatives seem to believe that the recession began during the Obama Administration. they want to claim that the Obama Administration is the “cause” of the recession.

    didn’t the recession begin years before Barack Obama was even in the White House? hasn’t the GDP grown every year since Obama became President?

    weren’t the TARP Funds the stimulus package that came with 0 accountability, created 0 jobs and went straight to Wall Street and Hedge Fund Managers? wasn’t this stimulus passed during the Bush Administration? didn’t Obama’s stimulus create 2.9 million jobs according to the Congressional Budget Office?

    is “Stop Blaming Bush” the Right-Wing’s only comeback when facts are brought up? are Republicans allergic to facts?

    does the irrational and delusional hate for Obama make Republicans look weak and scared?
