More On Using Classical Music To Pull The World Economy Out Of Recession -- And To Possibly Deter Crime And Edify Teenagers And The Young

"In coming years, Americans are going to need to save more. People saved about 10 percent of their income in the 1960s and 1970s. In the current decade, they have saved about 1 percent.

But the transition to an economy with a higher savings rate cannot happen all at once. In the current environment, a sharp pullback in spending could aggravate the (almost certain) recession. A little more spending now will not solve our problems, but it would not be the worst thing, either. Think of it as an insurance policy against a deep downturn."
