If you think that is personal then you need to spend some time on any forum. I'm responding to your claims that treat everyone as a retards on this forum. I've lived in southern France, southern Spain and Barcelona, with quite a bit of time in Italy. One of my good friends worked in one of the factories where she got boxes of stuff from China and I've had Italian classmates in Spain discuss this issue as well. Again you believe you have more knowledge.
As for the high priced comment, you felt the need to insert in parentheses you can afford it, so I'm gonna feel the need to respond to it.
A quick excerpt on why everyone on this forum is attacking you:
"You're dead wrong": Clearly you did not expect me to put a basic economic defense because otherwise you would actually respond. I would still love to hear an explanation on just how one derives the keynesian multiplier. And you "ever heard of trade deficit?" That is like asking someone if they have ever read a newspaper.
"Laymens terms": you allude to the fact that you are more intelligent and that the rest of us retards need you to explain basic facts. France's situation is a lot bigger joke than the US for one so I'm not taking a cheap shot that is just a fact.
"You ralph's wife or son or something?" - you are directly asking for someone to respond to the question? How is this personal.
"above primates take example" - again, we are all a bunch of gorillas eh?
From other posts you have made:
"huge irony of comical magnitude" - others have already highlighted this point but if you make blatant comments like this people are going to respond.
"rappers" comments - I think you need to spend a little time listening to as Sarkozy calls them the "ruffians who dishonor France" aka Sniper and get your head into reality. Going by your Jay-Z comments I guess all people should stop wearing Purple label since Jay-Z mentioned that in one of his songs. I guess only super black ghetto gorillas that have no idea about economics nor the fashion world fits into this mold. And I guess almost all designer brands are out, since Kanye wore them before. And nobody gets LVC since nobody goes to any sample sales or Barney's warehouse sales anymore.
"relax kiddo / gif" - and you ask people why they are being personal. And the use of kiddo, I guess you are the wise old man while the rest of this forum is filled with kids.
To clee1982, of course there are a variety of ideas about trade deficits, our genius mugatu clearly believes that all other ideas are "dead wrong".
