Are Women to Blame for Present World Economic Problems?

Discussion in 'Chit Chat' started by bearice, May 10, 2011.

  1. Make no mistake - our society has culturally conflated womens liberation with the idea of two income households.

    As such we have a labor market thats flooded which pushes down wage rates and leaves us with hand to mouth lifestyles and job-hopping instead of people employed in a single job for their entire career with adequate health insurance and comfortable retirement.

    So let's not think of it as "women stay home", let's think of it as reducing the number of wage earners to one per household. If more people did this (i.e. on a societal level) we would realize that our cost of living will go down dramatically, unemployment would vanish, and we'd all live happier lives (home-cooked meals, strategized family budgets, a clean and maintained home, children raised by the family rather than by the state, etc).

    A lot of families cannot afford to just have the husband work.. inflation has caused a need for 2 income families.

    Economies depend on production and savings and if a woman is producing she is growing our economy. As for the proper role of women in society, that is for free people making their own decisions on an individual basis to decide for themselves.

    Example, if there is 200 storey building, you will reach the top of the building by elevator/lift or staircase. If you use elevator you reach the top of the building in 2 minutes and then you have to come down. If you use staircase, you reach the top of the building in 2 hours and then you come down.
     
  2. They are to blame for a lot of it. But not all.
     
  3. When men and women work, the income/money increases so production also increases and world resources are consumed in a short span of time which leads to high inflation.

    If the world factories would have been working for 12 hours a day for past 50 to 100 years, then only 50% of world's resources would have been consumed today. The world economy would have easily survived for another 100 years without any problem. There would have been no financial crisis and multi-trillion bailouts for next 100 years and more. The human greed to develop very fast and competition has led to the downfall of world economy ultimately. For past 50 to 100 years, world factories and manufacturing facilities have been working and producing products and goods for 24 hours a day and 365 days a year. That is the reason the world resources and raw materials are in serious trouble and world prices are sky-high because everything has been consumed in a short span of time. Human beings are breeding like rats and they say rats are breeding like rats.
     
  4. Yes population and resources are also a problem.

    You Sir, are an asshat!

    Good day,

    EF :cool:
     
  6. Huh? I especially don't get the whole elevator/staircase thing... That one is well over my head.
     
  7. Your back. Did you go to Russia for a while?
     
  8. Think of world economy as a 200 storey building. When you reach the top of the building you have to come down. You cannot go any higher or further.

    If you use elevator you reach the top of the building in 2 minutes. This means when world factories work for 24 hours a day, world resources are in serious trouble in Year 2011.

    If you use staircase, you reach the top of the building in 2 hours. This means when world factories work for 12 hours a day, world resources would have survived for another 100 years more.

    Correct me if I am wrong?

    You are wrong. Industries and number of industries are not static. There are always new ones, evolving ones, subsets of old industries. it never ends. the building doesnt have 200 flores, it is infinite.
