:cash handouts:

what kind of anightmare (repeatedly looping in and out) am I in ?                       Japan is giving people a cash handout of $120.00, hoping they’ll go out and spend and “stimulate the economy”…

jesus, didn’t we just do that?
like within the last year?
and didn’t NOTHING HAPPEN????

wtf?!?

it’s almost funny –
the surreality of it,
each country, the exact same details,
and then,
the exact same solutions,
which are the same as
the exact same solutions that
didn’t work last time –

handing a paltry sum of cash out to people who might not have their rent next month,
hoping they’ll spend it and “stimulate consumption”

“consumption”:
once upon a time,
people died from that;
once upon a time, that meant
tuberculosis;

hmmm…production:
cancer;

consumption:
TB;

We’re doin’ great!
