    Wow interesting stuff. No matter which way you consider it they are interlinked. Which comes first a decrease in GDP or a decrease in investment? You can’t consider each individually. From a novice perspective, this seems like an increase in our personal savings is our enemy. I doubt you’re advocating this, but superficially it seems like George W.’s assertion during the 2001 recession that everyone go out to the mall, would seem apt right now?! Confusing.

    That comment pretty much sums up my general exception to this line of commentary.
