Economics Online Question #3

Suppose that the Labor Department announces that it has a new program that created 300,000 jobs. If the new job creation is true, why do these jobs not always bring a net social gain?

It wouldn't create a net social gain if the 300,000 jobs that were created replaced jobs that were already at a higher wage. (By running companies out of business.)

My Philosophy of Government

Government is the complex of political institutions, laws and customs through which the function of governing is carried out. My philosophies and ideas of government will be explained throughout this paper.
Some of the things government should do are keep the gas at a set price that’s fair to everyone. It should stay at 1.50 per gallon and be no more than that. The diesel prices should be lower than gas because that’s what farmers and truckers use and that is the way it has been since recently. For the 55 mile per hour zone should be 65 mph. 55 miles per hour is to slow, if you were to get in a wreck it would do about the same damage.
The government should give money for groceries and medicines to the people that are in the lower class. Last of all there should be no taxes on medicines or food because its something we have to have to survive.
Some of the limitations on government would be no hunting licenses. We should be able to hunt or fish whenever we want. Also there should be no death penalty. We should torture the bad guys and let them rot in prison. We should also have a to privacy. Last, we should be able to see any type of movies in theaters at any age.
Citizens should help better their community. They should take care of their pets and children. All citizens should recycle and keep there yards clean. Citizens have the right to rebel, but only for a short amount of time. Last of all citizens can shoot guns in the city limits as long as no one gets hurt and there is no destruction of property.
I agree with Ott Von Dismark said “Laws are like sausages, its better not to see them made.
I think the majority of my laws would be good. In conclusion “Government is not a reason, it is not eloquence, it is force; like fire, a troublesome servant and a fearful master. Never for a moment should it be left to irresponsible action.” –George Washington
