Humorist Michael Moore Needs Better Economic Answers
* If we are to raise the living standard and quality of life on our SpaceShip Earth, it is important for the people to study the principles of economics and make sure that their employers make sufficient profits in their locale to want to continue the business in their locale, such as in the Flint Michigan of the latter 1980's.
* Profits are the wages of the employers. Not many employers want to work for free. To increase employment, increase profits! Employers want to hire when there are good profits to be made in a region. To increase employment around our Spaceship Earth, we should defend profits around our Spaceship Earth. This fact was not stressed in Michael Moore's educational documentary. The people who responded to Michael Moore's questions did not stress making Flint Michigan a more profitable locale to bring back employment to Flint Michigan.
* When we study and gain an understanding of the principles of economics, we then begin to understand what must be done to move our economy towards balance in which work becomes available for everyone who wants to work. Currently, the economies around our Spaceship Earth have been sabotaged by ignorance, and thus there is not work for everyone who wants work.
* May we be lifted up by increasing knowledge, Michael Goodspaceguy Nelson
