Each $1 In Deficit Adds $4-$7 Of GDP
In our highly leveraged domestic consumer economy, every dollar of government deficit spend adds between $4 and $7 of GDP....
Thus, our $1.5 Trillion dollar deficit adds between $6 Trillion and $10.5 Trillion of GDP...not including state and local deficits.
So next time someone tells you our defict TOTALS only about 1X GDP.....You may want to tell them that our CURRENT deficit in our consumer economy is most of the GDP.
Think about that as we want to cut our defict...cut our pay to teachers....cut our entitlements.....cut pay to cops and firefighters.....cut pay to healthcare.......cut our leveraged GDP
For every dollar we cut in deficit......we cut GDP by 4-7X in a deficit driven economy.
...and now you understand why we are all going to the www.udderworld.com and why soon everyone will be protesting, fighting a war, or restructuring into the Digital Age.
