The economy will not turn around until people are willing to spend money and that will not happen until the jobs market picks up. When so many of us are out of jobs or are terrified of losing one, we pull back in our spending and that in turn makes the economy worse. Don’t be fooled by what the government tells you: the economy is NOT improving and the lowering unemployment numbers are due to more and more people giving up and stopping their job search. Once they drop out of the system they are no longer counted, even though they still need and want to work.
There is a big debate right now about what really stimulates job growth. Can the government do it or is it something that is more likely to happen if they step out of the way? The liberal left is convinced that the government is the solution to all problems and the conservative right is sure that just the opposite is true. This has left our country in political turmoil in the last 10 years or so and things have gotten very heated between the two sides. But most people are somewhere in the middle and just want to get out there and work for a living which is something that so many aren’t able to do right now.
Understandably, many people are doing everything they can to figure out other ways to make money so that they can keep a roof over their head. This includes going online to look for money making ideas and what they find is often confusing. While it seems very possible to make money online, it turns out that most people never can because it is all just too confusing.
Another thing that hurts them in their quest to learn how to make money on their computer is that they get sucked into one of the many scams out there. Where there is desperation, and right now there is a lot of it, there are always people trying to take advantage of the situation. When you have no idea what you are doing or how to get started, it is easy to fall prey to one of these less than honest scams.
Overall, people find that making money online is just about as hard as making it offline. The slick hawkers of foolproof “systems” will tell you otherwise but they are just trying to fool you into giving them your money. Think about it: why would making money be easier online than it is offline? It isn’t but because so many people know very little about how the Internet works, they are easy targets for scammers. The dream of making easy money in their head wins out over the common sense in their brain that tells them otherwise.
