Thom Hartmann = Economics FAIL.

I have to wonder why Thom is afraid to take it all the way. Why not really embrace the idea and push for a retirement age of 30 coupled with a mandatory 4-hour workweek maximum? That should result in even more prosperity, tax revenues (because we need more of those) and lower unemployment.

Butts in seats! That’s the ticket, baby! And screw you if you worked your ass off for thirty years to finally get that senior position at age 55. Can’t you see that Junior here needs your job? He’s obviously just as qualified. I’m off to break some more windows.

For comparison’s sake, put George Reisman’s suggestions (I’m so losing leftie points for this) next to Harmann’s.


One Response to “Thomonomics”

  1. Cork Says:

    Instead, it would eliminate the problem of unemployment in the United States. All those Boomers retiring would make room in the labor market for all the recent high-school and college graduates who are now finding it so hard to find a job.

    ROTFLMAO. This is the stupidest bullshit I’ve ever read in my entire life. I am literally laughing out loud.

    Good post!
