    depends on wether you are talking about an economic improvement that is good for all the people.

    This is why a warning sign such as wealth distribution is important.

    I can't figure out if Frankie is wealthy and deceptive or poor and ignorant.

    About 85% is. You need to find the balance point between profitability and quality of life. It's not that the two are mutually exclusive, but they do tend to compete a touch.

    Consumer Protection
    Anti-Fraud
    Workers Rights
    Product Safety

    These four areas need to be considered and then find the best balance of cost effectiveness. My balance is probably far less than most on the left though.

    Farnkie is frightened of truth. This thread leads into corporate blasphemy!

    illegal immigrant labor is good in many ways economically. It also has some serious downsides, like lack of tax revenue, abuse of illegal workers, etc.
    But the cheap labor does improve productivity and profits.

    It's like discussing quantum mechanics with a chimp, and a dumb one at that

    Chimps work on Quantum's new hybrid-diesel vehicles ?

    figures they are military vehicles after all.

    First, do you know what the "private sector" is?

    Second, are you aware that the US economy and the Federal Government are two different things?
