Clarification

Posted by Kari Gilstad on November 11, 2001 at 23:32:59:

I was wondering if the idea of Canes' "sticky wages" could be clarified. I am not sure what is being said by this. Also the Automatic stabilizers. I understand that they control the market drop and slow down the collapse, but how? By doing what? I'm just not clear on that.

I was also wondering, along the lines of someone elses posted message, if the Great Depression could have been prevented. Surely the only man that saw something coming wasn't JP Morgan. Just because he was the richest man, doesn't make him the smartest (although I could be wrong). I just find it hard to believe that if that one man could have had an idea that somehting was going to happen with the economy, then why couldn't other businesses have seen it as well? And even if they (the businesses) had seen it, i'm not sure that would have done much to prevent the Depression-just wondering.
