This, in fact, is a LIE.

You could not believe this LIE if you had even a remote understanding of the
math you claim to be an expert at.

GDP per person and household income are obviously different figures.  The
latest figure from the US Census Bureau, after a 7 year slide in American
household incomes, was $35,172, in 1996, which is $2,976 per month, which is
ONE THIRD of the average Japanese household in December 1999.

This is really rich.  If  you REALLY *think* that putting TWO TRILLION
DOLLARS into personal savings is an "economic crisis", you are a FAR, FAR
bigger moron than you've demonstrated thus far.
