why don't liberals connect more investment to more jobs?

in every recovery from recession, except this last one, jobs created by private investment in new businesses and new equipment outnumbered jobs created by government about seven to one. Why does America's left not recognize this and want to increase investment?

is it Marxist blinders? willful refusal to read economics? or are they under the spell of some slick, fast talking wizard?

    An indirect answer here .... Please read, " Leftism Revisited" , by Erick von Kuehnelt-Leddihn. In it he explains way "liberals" are not lovers of liberty, they are in fact lovers of tyranny. The sad thing is, is that most americans have been taught in the government schools to love the State taking care of them. Most americans are willful followers of the democratically elected leaders, and it logically follows, more and more coercion and taxes, and less true personal liberty and private property. And this movement toward tyranny is all not by some accident or chance. "Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad." The Master of the Universe judges people by giving them what they want, and they don't want the One True God, The Father.

    Because we understand how the economy works. No one creates jobs just because. They create jobs because business is good and they need workers. When the middle class is weak, like it is now, people do not have discretionary income. They do not spend. Only a fool would invest in business when there is no business to be had.

    Most investment income does not go to building business and creating jobs. It goes to financial instruments. You make money by lending money, not by building things.

      you response doesn't fit with the accepted in the economics profession model of economic growth. try the work of Dr. Lawrence J Lau when he was at Stanford.

    Liberal presidents invest by far the most in jobs. Republicans just give rich guys tax cuts and pretend they did.

  • Liberals were not in power. More voters believe that Democrats are closer to Wall Street. The recession in 2001 was also a jobless recovery.

      adding mandated costs to businesses is, economically, the same as increasing taxes. ObamaCare did it to us.
