Bush Aims to Boost US Tsunami Aid
Does it make economic sense to rebuild countries after a major disaster? This may not be politically correct, but should we send 950 million dollars to aid tsunami relief? I am looking at this in a totally economic way. Will helping these countries help the U.S. economy? The U.S. trade deficit reached over 617.7 billion dollars last year and is projected to keep getting bigger. Couldn’t we use this money here at home? With the hubbub about social security, don’t you think the 950 million would help keep it a float for awhile? Like I said, I know this is in bad taste, but why do we always have to be the saviors of the world? Maybe it’s time to be selfish and get our own ducks in a row.
