Come back after you've read up on the law of supply and demand. Until then we can't help you.
LOL. Your an idiot because I have read it. And I understand it fully.... What's your point?

And not to sound like a brat or anything, but the "Law of supply and demand" is not a law. There are exceptions to that rule.... Hence it is not 100% true. Laws of nature can not be broken, laws of economics are constantly in flux. What was taught 30 years ago may no longer apply to the economy of today, and even tomorrow.

Should I go into using automobiles as an example?

Supply and demand would dictate that the prices should fall, but GW Bush decided to do a bailout so that they corporations value would not be hurt.

Where is supply and demand working there?????

Don't even get me started on tax-breaks, subsidies, and no-bid contracts.

Prices constantly go up as it is. It's called inflation. Even without wage increases, prices will go up...... The point is to raise the floor.

When you raise the floor, you raise everything as a whole, but the distance between the ceiling and the floor is a bit smaller.

When obama's recession becomes a depression we'll all be hauling water from the nearest stream and growing vegetables in the back yard. How about a rabbit pen to raise your own meat? I built a brick BBQ grille on the back patio for when they cut the power off to the house. My next purchase will be a chain saw to cut firewood.
Yea, I used to be middle class until the Democrats took over Congress in the 2006 elections.

Warren Buffet weighed in on the economy and stated there would be no recovery this year or next and that unemployment would continue to rise, possibly to 11%.
Buffet criticized the stimulus package as misspent on political favors and reeking with pork spending.
Buffet was careful not to criticize obama personally as he is currently investing in obama's green technology, obviously to cash in on government spending where ever it leads.

Warren Buffet is already advising people to invest in businesses that will benefit from government stimulus spending. The new billionaires in America will be the ones who abandon American industry and invest in green technology. Look for millions of American jobs in manufacturing to disappear but not be replaced with green jobs.
Buffet himself will rake in huge investment windfalls. Meanwhile, Buffet is laying off 500 of his own employees because new investments will be sharply less in number than current investments. Buffet defended his employee layoffs as necessary in a continuing economic decline.
