Romer: The Growthless Recovery
July 6, 2011
RUSH: Here's Christina Romer, April 12th, earlier this year, Washington University in St. Louis. She is the former chairwoman of Obama's White House Council of Economic Advisors.
ROMER: If you ask me, I think what we're experiencing isn't in fact closer to a "growthless" recovery than to a jobless one. Because GDP started to grow more than a year and a half ago, but with the exception of just a couple of quarters, growth has not been noticeably above its trend rate of about 2-1/2 percent a year. I don't rejoice at the news that we added 216,000 jobs in March. About a hundred thousand of that 216,000 is needed every month just to keep up with the growth in the labor force. At this rate of job growth, it would take most of the decade to replace the eight 8-1/2 million jobs that were lost in the recession.
RUSH: It's worse than that, but at least she got pretty close to that. But how about the notion here of a "growthless recovery"? There's no such thing, folks, as a "growthless recovery," by definition. But this is what she was telling the young skulls full of mush at Washington University in St. Louis.
No such thing as a recovery when we never came out the initial recession.
No such thing as a recovery without growth.
Romer is an idiot maximus and anyone taking any of her uni. classes/courses deserves an idiocy dumbing-down award. =.=
Growthless recovery=no recovery
Get a frickin clue you strupid sonsof beach’s there is no recovery. We havn’t seen a recovery, we only pissed away a trillion dollars for nothing.
The least we could have done with that money would be to fix the damned roads and hire people to do some sort of work like Roosevelt did, Instead we bought a car complany and made some bankers rich.
With a trillion dollars we could have created a Social Security system that would have been financially safe for 100 years. Instead we tossed it away, and no one knows where it went. has anyone ever looked ot see where it went? Now they want more so they can do it again.
If we don’t get this Kenyan fruit out of the White House soon and do something to wake up the Dumocrats we won’t have anything left to work with.
What are those people smoking? There is NO RECOVERY, MORONS!
Obama Adviser (Christina Romer) - Were Going Through a Growth-less Recovery
Growth less recovery? What an idiot and misdirecting liar—there’s no such thing.
Another Obamatard - “growth-less recovery” = “we all the spent taxpayer dollars to our friends, and now the money is gone, so we can’t artificially boost the GDP numbers anymore”. Dead commie walking.
“we only pissed away a trillion dollars for nothing.”-—
No ‘we’ didn’t, Obama, Pelosi, Reid and the radicals in the White house and congress , did...with the corrupt media’s help.
There has to be some more phrases we can coin before they try and use them:
- an invisible recovery.
- an undefinable recovery.
- an unexpected reverse growth recovery.
- an unrealized current future growth expectation recovery.
- a let me be clear recovery
- an I me mine me I recovery
- a corporate jet 800 foot flat stall recovery
What a bunch of oxy-morons.
What do you call something that “DOESN’T GROW” and gives you “NO JOBS”?... WHY IT’S....an “OBAMA RECOVERY”
This is the crap they’re selling at Washington University in St. Louis? LOL! Worth the tuition money, I’d say! If I were a student and they billed me for the semester, I’d just tell them “to pretend I paid it”. They apparently tolerate fantasy.
Growth....lack thereof....imagine a disasterous car wreck...mangled bodies.....there is no death, but there is no healing either......same thing [so, I’ve concluded that the new TORCHWOOD premiere is about Obama’s ominous administration....pass it on]
Also known as a “Recoveryless Recovery.”
A lively stillborn or a lifeless birth?
To paraphrase Richard Hammond, “If there’s no growth, it’s not a recovery.”
Yup, it’s a jobless, recoveryless recovery.
We have not been in a recovery, we are not in a recovery and until Obama and the dems are removed from power, and the GOP rents a brain and buys a set, there will never be in a recovery.
If you are in a boat far from shore and it starts taking on water, do you hang on and hope for the best, OR, do you throw overboard the bastards that deliberately and continually cut at the hull, bail water and work on fixing the leak?
Our boat is getting awfully full... we can’t just keep hanging on.
I do not for a single second, believe that our Founding Fathers would have sat back and watched these corrupt bastards destroy our country.
