This time from And the Cow Goes Moo, who dares to ponder what will happen after the recession.
If we can spend a billion here to save a billion in the future, that seems like a great deal to me.
If we can spend $10 billion modernizing our infrastructure to reduce energy loss in transmissions for the next decade, great!
If we can spend another $10 billion creating an alternative-energy infrastructure for transportation, to save billions in oil imports as well as mitigate environmental damage, even better!
This recession has to end eventually, right? And the US national debt has to be reduced eventually, right?
Careful now, such giddiness will have the Disaster Chic police all over you. They’ll not tolerate outbursts of optimism, however guarded it may be.
