I think the problem with the economy is they forgot how to do math or changed it for their benefit. Look at how badly this has turned out, millions have lost their jobs, houses and cars.
The problem is that 2+2 does not = 4 anymore. Before the boom busted I think that 2+2=28 which greatly inflated the monetary system. How they got 2+2 to=28 is levrege. Take the original 4 and start using it for collateral, that way you could get 2 more 4′s, see where I’m going with this. Then put those leveraged 4′s up and you could get more, providing you have good credit. This is in my opinion how the mortgage meltdown came to be. These big companies turned 2+2=4 into 2+2=28, that does not work. We all learned basic math in first grade.
To fix this problem, my opinion, they need to get 2+2 to =4 again. Can it be done, I don’t know?
The hard part to fixing the problem is all these extra 4′s out there (we could hire some cowboy’s to round them up), somebody has to pay for them.
If we all can remember the answer to 2+2 then we should never have this problem again.
