  • Layoffs and Outsourcing Are Good for the Economy

    It’s Simple Math

    01/08/2012  05:00pm

    All I hear lately is people complaining that there aren’t any jobs out there and how we need to create jobs. They all seem to be under some kooky delusion that this would somehow improve the economy. If you know anything about economics at all then you know this is quite contrary to reality. Labor is, by far, the greatest expense for any corporation. Therefore if you can eliminate jobs, or at least outsource them to some third world country for pennies on the dollar, you increase profit potential. Higher profits mean greater dividends and greater dividends mean more income flowing into your trust fund. Assuming your daddy’s attorney structured it properly, you get to take larger distributions in years when your portfolio generates more income. In plain English, that means you get a raise and, when you get a raise, you spend more.  Spending drives the economy and the more of it you do, the more the economy grows. It’s simple math.

    In light of this, I’ve mailed a letter to my Congressman containing a draft of what I call the Jobs Elimination Act of 2012. My proposed bill will grant tax incentives to firms that  eliminate or outsource jobs. Thus, we will provide Corporate America greater opportunity to improve their bottom line which, of course, trickles down to us all. If President Obama has any aspirations for a second term, I urge him to sign this bill immediately when it comes before him.

  • Makes perfect sense! Several of the "skilled" jobs I used to have are nearly completely automated with no hope of ever calling back the laid off workers. Production is going great guns!

    In the meatpacking industry where I live, they can't send the livestock overseas, so they're importing the underpaid workers.

  • Together, we can eliminate jobs.

  • Obama beat you to it. He's been eliminating and outsourcing jobs since he took office.

  • Clinton, Bush and Obama are all just trying to beat each other's records on this subject. So far each has beat the one before. Let's see what Romney can do. With any luck we will all be jobless, then we can all qualify for unemployment and medicaid and be set for life!

  • damn you are just the smart one on every topic, pretty stupid actually, lets eliminate those jobs, then you have two choices, first one being welfare for everyone that you can pay for because hungry poor people would rob you and kill a pussy like you very fast ! second choice, we could just round up all the unemployed folks on welfare and have a mass execution! your a dumb ass man, its almost like you are posting this stupid shit, knowing that its bullshit, just to get a rise out of people!
