The first thing you have to understand about Tookie Williams is that this is what he looked like.

Re: Health care and jobs

I am not making a moral argument, but rather, an economic impact argument. If such a large percentage of our GDP is tied directly to the Health Care Industry, then reducing the revenue in this domestic industry will impact GDP. Over the last decade, the housing market has been a key driver of economic activity, through rising prices. Look what happened to jobs and the economy when prices in the industry started coming down. I don’t know what you think causes a reduction in GDP, if not a...

A lot of things can. A decrease in spending, a decrease in tax revenue, a decrease in production, a decrease in consumption, etc. Reduced spending for CERTAIN THINGS can lead to reduced employment or income. However all things aren't created equal. For instance a reduction in military spending won't cause this to happen, at least it won't cause a decrease in general income. This isn't that much of a factor as long as the size of the economy has grown at a pace to match the rate of population...

A reduction in military spending does indeed impact the economy. Two thirds of GDP is born from consumer consumption and guess where the rest comes from? When Defense contracts at certain companies are cut back, that means a loss of jobs. When military bases close in districts because of a reduction in military spending, service jobs are lost in towns that lost these bases….etc. You are just strait up wrong in this example. This is intellectual masturbation. The fact is that one needs to...

Your focus seems to be to find the exception to any rule that I present. What this accomplishes in regards to the debate of my original these, I am not...

You construed government spending as if decreasing government spending is intrinsically a horrible thing which is destined to destroy jobs. I simply pointed out that increases in government spending can potentially destroy jobs as well. Either way there is a drawback. The article is showing that even without the Defense industry the job market would still be in trouble. So funding the defense industry is not really a solution to the problems in the job market. You said: This was in response...

Noah says: Of course its not! There is no occupation called "Health care industry". However, there are occupations within the health care industry that are among the largest numerical growth producers.
