Years ago there use to be "job creation schemes". Job lose is high, so pay people money to do something - anything, just to lower the unemployment rate. Of course that type of economics has since been discredited, so they changed the name to "stimulus". I think this is aimed at people who believe in that.

Yep, that's the bottomline. There's a study out about Spain's experience in massive (government) investment in 'green' power, and if I recall, for every job 'created' by the program, 3 were lost from the private economy.

That's what I was getting at with the survey: Do this people not get that increased labour inefficiency is a bad thing, or do they know it and twist the presentation for the cause?

I have another idea!

Speeding while drunk, snorting coke and watching porn 20 Jobs
Drunk Driving 6 Jobs
Speeding 3 Jobs
Driving safely 1 Jobs

There you go. For a town of a certain size, more jobs are created by irresponsible driving than driving safely. (police, jail gaurds, lawyers, etc)

Which is why I'm in favour of nuclear power. It should be able to deal with climate change, give us a reliable source of energy, and will also make us energy independent.
