The Phony Recession

Have you ever wondered why the 2008 recession dragged on and on? Oddly, the richest people are not suffering. They are getting richer faster than ever. It is only Joe Average who is suffering. Corporations have been raising prices, lowering wages and lowering service. This means more money than ever for them. They like things this way. The have artfully fooled the public into thinking the unions and public service sector are to blame, allowing them to crush unions and lower wages further. This recession is a massive wealth shift from the middle class to the elites. No wonder the corporations flatly refuse to co-operate with Obama to end the recession.
