Here defiant. You can not appreciate Nobel Prize winning economics nor world renown Statisticians how about from another source.

Pope Francis: Unfettered Capitalism Is "Tyranny"; Economic Inequality "Kills."

Pope Francis Stated in his 84 page document that lays out his official platform. Known as the apostolic exhortation. A critique on lax and immoral capitalist systems. The Pope loves everyone, poor and rich alike, BUT he is obliged, in the name of Christ to remind all that the rich must help, respect and promote the poor.
Pontiff goes on attacking the idolatry of money and beseeching the politicians to insure that all their constituents are guaranteed an education, respectful work and health care.

“As long as the problems of the poor are not radically resolved by rejecting the absolute autonomy of markets and finical speculation and by attacking the structural causes of inequality, no solution will be found for the world’s problems, or for that matter’ to any problems”
“Just as the commandment “Thou shall not kill” sets a clear limit in order to safeguard the value of human life, today we also have to say “Thou shall not to an economy of exclusion and inequality. Such an economy kills”

“While the earnings of a minority are growing exponentially, so to is the gap separating the majority from the prosperity enjoyed by those happy few. This imbalance is the result of ideologies which defend the absolute autonomy of the market place and financial speculation. Consequently, they reject the right of states, charged with vigilance for the common good, to exercise any form of control. A new Tyranny is thus born, invisible and often virtual, which unilaterally and relentlessly impose its own laws and rules.”

“In this system, which tends to devour everything which stands in the way of increased profits, whatever is fragile, like the environment, is defenseless before the interest of a defined market, which becomes the only rule”

“in this context, some people continue to defend trickle down theories, which assumes that economic growth, encouraged by a free market, will inevitably succeed in bringing about greater justice and inclusiveness in the world. This opinion, which has never been confirmed by the facts, express a crude and naïve trust in the goodness of those wielding economic power and in the sacralized workings of the prevailing economic system.”

A financial reform open to such ethical considerations would require a vigorous change of approach on the part of political leaders. I urge them to face the challenge with determination and eye to the future, while not of course, the specifics of each case. Money must serve, not rule!”

Financial Inequality is what breeds poverty. Kind of a DUH! there. Now which party has produced and continues to seek financial inequality? Have proven this many times over. That is to say the Statisticians that I have produced for you proved it.
Sanctimonious zealots of the religious cults advanced the ignorance of superstition out unto their flocks. Between the two they created this failure. They even demonstrated their grandiose failures twice. Once in 1929 and again in 2008 and still you have no comprehension of it. That speaks volumes of what these right wing ideologues have left for their support. Blind stumbling archaic regressive bubble heads. DUH you are JUST now figuring out that we are overpopulated!!!??? Now just try to figure out why and who is root and tooting for more overpopulation..
Social Welfare Programs is what breeds poverty which is exactly why Detroit, MI is bankrupt because people found out that living in Poverty paid better than working for a living and the Liberal Democrats are responsible for that thinking too in Detroit, MI with their Great Society and that is why those people in Detroit, MI like the Idea that Poverty pays better than working for a living which is why I couldn't stand Detroit, MI.

The New Normal: Welfare is Now America's Most Popular Occupation

&#9726;It pays well. Welfare currently pays more than a minimum-wage job in 35 states and more than $15 an hour in 13 of those states. Why find a job when you can make that much for not working?

You left out the welfare of the 1% that they receive. They call it "SUBSIDES"! Welfare on the impoverished is produced by the inequality of the laborers productivity distribution. Had the laborer paid adequate wages they would not require welfare. LOL that's how corporations like Wal Mart take advantage of that. They pay wages below living wages required making their employees eligible for all sorts of welfare programs as they are in poverty. Wal Mart presently require $900,000 in local communities to "SUBSIDIES" their labor force. Put your tabloid foxy comic books down and try to actually get the reality of what is transpiring right before your very eyes. Try a EGADS a book like "Price Of Inequality." Written by a Nobel Prize winner in economics.

You need to put down the tabloid foxy comic books since you want to refuse to understand that those people choose on their own to live poverty and don't create or want to create their own wealth because they know if they do they loose their welfare and they will tell you that in Detriot, MI which is why they refuse to work and if anything the Federal Government should bring back the WPA(Works Progress Administration) and make people work for that welare that they are getting for doing nothing and I give credit to FDR for that thinking and these people of today who are on the dole think it is owed to them which they have proved FDR right when FDR himself acknowledged the danger of welfare programs becoming "a habit with the country." In November 1933, he said, "When any man or woman goes on a dole something happens to them mentally and the quicker they are taken off the dole the better it is for them the rest of their lives." Early in 1935 Roosevelt argued, "We must preserve not only the bodies of the unemployed from destitution but also their self-respect, their self-reliance and courage and determination."

Later that year Roosevelt noted, "In this business of relief we are dealing with properly self-respecting Americans to whom a mere dole outrages every instinct of individual independence. Most Americans want to give something for what they get. That something, in this case honest work, is the saving barrier between them and moral disintegration. We propose to build that barrier high."

Works Progress Administration

The Works Progress Administration (renamed in 1939 as the Work Projects Administration; WPA) was the largest and most ambitious New Deal agency, employing millions of unemployed people (mostly unskilled men) to carry out public works projects,[1] including the construction of public buildings and roads. In much smaller but more famous projects the WPA employed musicians, artists, writers, actors and directors in large arts, drama, media, and literacy projects

In short those people weren't looking for a handout, just a hand, and a chance to get back on their feet. There is nothing wrong with helping people. Just don't cause welfare to become a way of life.

People during the Great Depression weren't looking for a handout which was true because there wasn't any like they have become accustom to in todays society and people expect handouts as if they are owed to them and if the Federal Government would eliminate welfare and bring back and replace welfare with a program similar to the WPA(Works Progress Administration) and eliminate welfare these deadbeats would get a culture shock of what Liberalism used to be like in the 1930's and what it meant to be a Working Liberal and nothing was free.

LIANO another example of how much Texas has regressed in their intelligence due to republicans austerity endeavors. Still fiddle faddling with no substance or facts. Spewing derogatory ignorance emulating the intoxication of the Tea Bagger.
Significant Finical Inequality in our USA has progressed under republican austerity policies since the early 1970’s. Highest acceleration to finical inequality has been addressed to the USA within the civilized developed nations.
Here in the USA in 2009 Texas rank the highest for finical inequality as Main was the lowest in accelerating inequality.
2011 CBO report illuminates that the top 1% increased their incomes by 275% after taxes over a period of 1979 to 2007. Compare this to a 60% in the middle class with gains of less than 40% to their incomes.
2012 exposes the 1% as having the same gap discrepancy to the 99% as it had in the 1920’s. Exhibiting a 20% increase to the 1% as the 99% suffered at a mere 1% gain.
Robert J. Shiller won the noble prize for economics,{2013} states his findings indicate that this increasing finical inequality within the USA is “The most important problem that we are facing now today”.
Presently populace is far more educated and interconnected than in the 1920’s. An enlighten populace recognizes the patterns of austerity’s restrictions to finical distributions and limited consumers , demands failure of the economics of that institution.
1929 and 2008 let loose the finical institutions to ravage the lower 99%. Profits and further hording of the fuel from the middle class dynamos for wealth flow and consumption. Final outcome were the “Great Depression/Recession” in our nations history.
All of the southern states suffer under an inequality that rivals the 3rd world nations of Africa. Interesting that they be “RED”. LOL the REDS have invaded the USA !
Observing Texas, with its extreme admiration for austerity polices, it becomes easily recognized their impending collapse. Reluctance and direct obstruction for the 1% to adhere to their laborer’s productivity distributions, in ratios that continues to fuel its middle class dynamos, will simply implode their debt upon themselves.
