I mean it’s easy to talk about these abstract terms but if you look at the facts, 14.1 million Americans unemployed, over half of all American families living from paycheck to paycheck, more than 44 million on food stamps. What is it going to look like for those of us who can’t afford to move to Singapore [where you live]?”
