So, about aggregate demand...
Voters see little help coming anytime soon. Forty-one percent expect that they’ll be about the same economically in the coming year, while 25 percent think they’ll be better off and 34 percent think things will get worse.
Spend spend spend!
In other words, whatever The Bernnake keeping rates low until DISemployment reaches 6.5% is really supposed to do, it's got nothing to do with actually reducing DISemployment to 6.5%. Only people actuallly, ya know, buying stuff can do that.
Of course, it's hard to aggregate the ol' demand when everybody's working in retail, where your job putting stuff on shelves doesn't pay enough to help you take stuff off shelves.
