Mr. Obama will end the war in Afghanistan by sending 30 000 more troops. I wish American goodluck in her latest adventure. Mr. Obama has already rejected a comparison to the Vietnam war. I’m so pained that we got to this stage. Surely there are other ways. War is definitely not one of it.
Meanwhile back home the same america is looking for funds and opportunities to solve the unemployment problems. 10.2% of Americans are unemployed. The actual figure is close to 15m people. That is almost as twice as the population of Sweden. America is experiencing an unemployment rate that is the highest in 26 years.
Mr. Obama is meeting with business leaders and trying to find a way to reduce the unemployment figures. I am not a businessman but one thing I know for sure is that charity begins at home. Millions of dollars spent daily on Bush-now Obama war is obviously having its toll on the American economy, at least partly.
Unemployment is the opportunity cost for 15 million americans.
Well what can I say. Over to the economists. They can confuse us more with their bogus terminologies-micro and macro economics.
