“But it has not come for free; it cost $6.4 trillion in new Federal public debt since the recession started in December 2007. That’s a 225% increase in the debt, $1.2 trillion per year.” Treasury states debt on Dec. 2007 was $5.146 trillion, and $11. 560 on Jan 31, 2013. That’s a 125% increase.

The working age population increased by 14.6%.When the economy that is 70% driven by purchasing demand, a major drop-off will result, i.e., a gap in former potential vs. actual. We’re about 6% below full potential, about $1 trillion in lost output. The self-generating expansion has not arrived, and it will not until sufficient government stimulus re-ignites private sector hiring. We need a full employment policy. Between 1933-1937 unemployment dropped from 25% to 9.6% (Marshall Auerback’s article at Next New Deal, August, 2011, The Real Lesson from the Great Depression: Fiscal Policy Works…

We need to reflate demand. We need to balance the out-of-balance distribution of income. We are in an inequality trap. See Polly Cleveland’s article at Dollars and Sense: — my blog:
