Gubernatorial Candidates

I have looked at the websites for all of the candidates for our next governor and so far I see no one who wants to lead this state.

What will it take for someone to put their mouth where their money is and tell us what they will do to lead our state? We are nine years into the 21st century, but we pretend like it is 1952.

Someone please step up.

70% Consumer Spending

Filed under: Circle the Wagons, Economy, South Carolina — NotforHire @ 7:58 am

I keep reading about how 70% of our economy is based on consumer spending, and that we need to spend more to bring us out of this recession.

It needs to be pointed out that consumer spending is consumption, and that 70% consumption is, to put it mildly, unsustainable. Does that mean that only 30% of the economy is production?

A new found frugality and increased savings rate are nothing but a good things for our state.  It is time for a major restructuring in how we function in our economy.
