30. The government spending (at a time of possible recession) has been
solely in the stock market & in War on Iraq. That is what has kept the economy going. The workers fight inflation (that would occur due to oil increases) by not getting jobs (unless they sign up for Iraq) or taking jobs a lower pay. So interest rates can stay low - and fund the market (which has to slow down if interest rates go high).

That is why the government spending is ourside of the USA in Iraq. So the defence industry, & the people in the stock market benefit. And buy homes.

Everyone else is kicked out of this round of government spending and the economy.

So that they can do their job of fighting inflation while the rich do dick all. And benefit!
