Distant past, present, and future....

"The national budget must be balanced. The public debt must be reduced; the arrogance of the authorities must be moderated and controlled. Payments to foreign governments must be reduced, if the nation doesn't want to go bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."
-Marcus Tullius CICERO, 55 BC
Roman author, orator, & politician (106 BC - 43 BC)

Do you agree?

This article is very interesting. There is very important to reduce public debt but for people are very hard if goverment take very restrictive measures.

It's very important to follow Cicero's teachings. Economy is a really important factor in government managing. In my opinion is difficult to use taxes wisely without molesting the citizens, but thats the president's task.

I agree that If we don´t want to have a total bankrupt there is a need of change in our way of living on public assistance and behavour as "pícaros" and start working for the maintenance of the state, even if we don´t like taxes, otherwise it will be impossible to afford our future as workers and families.

We are living difficult times but I think that the crisis that we are having right now is in the worst point and we can only rise and work a lot to beat this bad period. Enterprising and new specific jobs I think that could be a help.

I agree which Marcus Tulluis said several million years ago. I think that if we want out of crisis we need work more and spend less. I know that is difficult to do that, but certainly the years before crisis were not real. There was a period of economic bonanza which was foreseeable it would be last forever, for that reason this is one of the worst problems of capitalism economy which are known cyclic periods.
