Re: Sadly, most Americans are economically ignorant

Unfortunately most Americans are highly ignorant on economic issues and proudly so. They'll whine about manufacturing going overseas and then whine for more of the very regulations that force business to leave. They whine about the cost of gas, and then whine to keep oil locked underground. They whine about high unemployment, and then whine for the government to punish those who are productive and might need employees. When election time comes around they whine about the sorry economy and then elect socialists who can hardly keep their contempt for free enterprise in check.

I can hardly blame carriers for exploiting the voluntary ignorance of the public. I was just looking at a magazine advertising used cars, and in most of the ads the price was not present but the monthly payment or down payment were! Just look at the posts in the forum in this very blog: half the comments are either from people who are proud of the fact they can't figure it out or from people who want mommy government to swoop in and save them from their own shortsightedness.

It's amazing how the generation with the greatest access to information is the same generation least willing to access it.
