Happy Now?Posted on November 06, 2009
I believe in the law of unintended consequences. When the government went on its jihad against corporate travel and perk excess -- it would create lots of bad ripples in the travel -- tourist based economies. It would hurt tax payers -- not help taxpayers. It would hurt hotels; airlines -- theme parks -- casinos -- dining establishments -- credit and charge card companies. Who would it help? Politicians that get air time for saying optically correct things; without understanding the unintended consequences of their media stances. So -- here you go -- check out this terrific work and the top 20 unemployed communities in America. I was shocked to see that more than a dozen cities were in just California and Florida; with Las Vegas too -- that made for the bulk of the cities. Sad to say -- Detroit is number 1 -- in unemployment. But Miami? Tampa? San Francisco? San Diego? Orlando? Las Vegas? Happy now? Get out there and travel this holiday season -- have some family fun -- stimulate the economy. The world is still on sale.
