Consumer Confidence? How about Producer Confidence?

I heard on the radio today that consumer confidence is down. Yet some people think consumer confidence is up, based on what they see in retail stores. “The people who have money are spending it,” one lady said on the radio, “while the ones who don’t lay around at home watching TV.”

People laying around watching TV are not contributing to the economy in any meaningful way. Thus they’re a serious drain. And people who are laying around certainly do not have any right to complain about the economy. They rightly deserve to be poor. Today there is nearly as much opportunity as ever before (not counting the ways our privacy has been abused by the government), so go out, do some good work, and get your share.
