    NO. Its sinking because the Military, namely the Pentagon, spend all of that money on "Star wars" like equipment, that costs trillions of dollars.

    Sorry, but doesn't "a government willing to spend money" favours economy?

    When the governemt "pours money" to the local citizens, they get more income and then 1) more willing to spend money on other things 2) get more money means more income tax to the government. It was said to be a way to initate a positive monetary influrance to the country.

    Although I agree there'd be better effect if money is spent on other things closely related to the public.

    Well, if you pour money, and liquidity is high, the value of the dollar will be less, because its abundant.

    Its a sword with 2 edges. Tax cuts can be good, but if not employed in a good way it can destroy an economy, and break the system, like what we have seen.
