    all.

    I'd add, for my part, two modifications:

    1. Take care of poor folks first, they've been getting the shaft for three decades whereas the more comfortable of the middle class, only the past 5 years;
    1. Make sure that growth is sustainable, and adjust the targeted consumption accordingly.

    I'd also point out that consumerism is an element of the grease which keeps the system going, incenting as it does folks to keep working harder, get into more debt, then having to more easily accept lower pay jobs out of necessity when the inevitable job transition occurs (also part of the economic system and its inherent insecurity for all but those who's accumulation of money is virtually subsidized).

    Freedom is merely privilege extended unless enjoyed by one and all -9.50, -5.74
