Advocating for keeping people poor/suffering for the sake of the economy is like advocating for taking a car off of a cliff because that'll make it go faster.
@Tailsteak it was always very strange to me growing up to here how the economy was the most important thing during elections. finally figured out that it was supposed to be a proxy for overall welfare and happiness.
Here and now in 2022 we see that that proxy has completely broken down. Though I don't know that the people in charge care.
