Sales gains in San Diego will not get spoiled by higher taxes the U.S. Government might have taken from citizens to return to the years the national budget deficit does not force the entire enterprise crowd in an American economy to make adjustments, even cut back on investments just to guarantee the enterprise work lasts. The city does not have to make a slow recovery filled with business failures and family accounts in the red.
Locals can agree to get together to buy and sell. And neighbors can get hired.
Worries on weighty tax burdens are forgotten by all but the rich. No one in the common employed ranks will be an extra 2,200 dollars in the hole. Time to make plans to use the spending dollars that strengthened an economy last year to pay the stores and restaurants and their productive workers. The fuss can be about the ticket price entertainment. Not bargain deal plans counted out.
Dollars not paid to the federal government in taxes can make a big difference. Avoiding even good deals on houses in a housing market that still must carry through a long recovery, and on cars, the traditional new ones or the green ones that save energy, has made low hiring years draw out too long.
Adam Smith's invisible hand would not have saved an economy held back by undersized take home incomes. Inflation is still a whopper in San Diego. The dollars locals take home to the family are the real bedrock the town needs for everyone to get their financial footing back. The only thing that can overcome high prices.
Stalled plans to invest the hard earned dollars in giving a small business profit, or start a new life of commuting in a green car, have been crucial growth stoppers. If taxes had gone up on middle class and working class families, piggy banks would have fallen over empty.
Just as the leap year began, Congress showed they have mercy for the San Diegans who have to strengthen their own economy by passing the American Taxpayer Relief Act. Unemployment, at near one hundred thousand locals, still is more popular than paying to see a concert and paying an extra penny to buy the best Hallmark card.
Workers left out of a job have an opportunity to get hired, make money again, and pay their own way.
Count the pocket money. Recovery work will march ahead in San Diego.
A firm colorful examination on truth.
