No one has the cash to buy anything after being put out of work. Or the taxes get very high when people start turning to the er / jail / prison as there doctor.
Thus why lowering corporate tax rates are ridiculous - personal income is going to be slashed by automation, so where will governments get their income from if corporate rates are dropped?
Yup. Win10 uptime is well under a week, figure 3-5 days before a reboot. Typically a reboot that happens while the laptop is closed and your snug in a rug sleeping. Got the uptime up to 3-5 days by realizing I could restart Windows Explorer when it crashed, which it does 1-2 days in. Win10 is the buggiest, most unreliable PoS I've run in decades.
My Win10 install is a clean install, and is restarted whenever needed for updates. Can't remember the last time I had to manually restart. Windows explorer doesn't crash.
I suspect your hardware isn't up to scratch.
if...the person in the car behind
You are correct, anytime where you aren't bothering to look at where your vehicle is heading could lead to disaster.
looking up at the road then back down again - (at what?) - just seems like poor driver behaviour.
Saw this recently in person, when an emergency vehicle with just flashing lights - no siren - was turning across an intersection in front of me. I could tell traffic was moving strangely and slowed down, then stopped when I saw the emergency vehicle - as did the car next to me. Unfortunately the driver of the car behind that person wasn't paying attention (yes it was a green light, why would anyone stop?) and ran into the back of her.
Stop it with the debt crap! And stop comparing the spending of money against the GDP instead of our overall total value!
Let's say you own property worth $1,000,000, you have $200,000 in total debt, and you make $180,000 a year. Would you worry about spending an extra $20,000 this year?
Those numbers are the US economic numbers translated to personal terms.
The NET worth of the US was over $86 trillion at the end of last year. That's value minus debt folks. Get real.
Federal income of $3.2T
Deficit $0.5T, ~ 15% overspend.
If I'm making $180k, spending $210k and add another $20k on top of that to make $230k? Yes, I would be worrying about that.
Fiat currency is of course different to a home budget, so your analogy doesn't really work.
No it isn't. I value air but I've never paid a cent for it.
How much have you paid for clean air though, via taxes, regulation, and enforcement of those regulations?
Because when you don't pay for clean air in certain locations, you end up like Shanghai...
Anyone who suspects that ANY big wig at Google/Reddit/Microsoft cannot simply go in and change things as they see fit for profit, legal or political reasons is deluded.
Data stored in services these companies run is used as legal evidence.
Reddit has publicly demonstrated that they can and will edit posts by users, and it cannot be determined if a user did or did not not post that content.
This can now be used to discredit any content on Reddit from admissibility from legal matters.
It does not matter they can run games ABC and DEF which is superior to XYZ.
So you're saying that Linux has superior games to Windows, but people run Windows to play the games their friends are playing?
Are you sure?
Or maybe they can be setup as batteries for AIs.
