He said the best way to jumpstart the economy is to have people work more hours. The United States, he's talking about. The most overworked country on the planet.

The average work week in the US I think is only 35 hours at the moment. I think he wants to see that increase as it will put more disposable income in peoples pockets that they can put back into the economy. More hours of work and a higher wage from a single job would be a good thing. There are many people swinging two or three part time jobs in order to make ends meet. To have a higher percentage of people working full time jobs as opposed to part time would be a good thing. The labor force participation rate is at its lowest since 1977 and is the primary reason the unemployment rate has been dropping the past 5 years. Plus, of those employed, many are working these part time jobs as oppose to a full time job. Wages for most jobs have been stagnant for years.

I'm sure that's how it will be explained away, but that's not what he said, and that's a very distorted portrait of our current economy you painted right there.

How in the bluest of blue hells are businesses supposed to afford to pay for all this extra labor?

Sounds like a job-killer.

I'm sure Donald Trump could jump start the economy as president by employing millions to labour on his pharaonic pyramid (due for completion in term 6.5). It's no more disconnected from reality than most of what I hear actual supposed presidential aspirants, in America, in 2015, say.

The labor force participation rate is down for several reasons. The babyboomers are retiring plus there are many people that were never able to get back into the workforce after losing their jobs during Obama's first term.
If the labor force participation rate were still as high as it was in 2008, the unemployment rate would be 10%. Its still more of an employers job market than an employees job market at the moment.

When demand for a product or service the business provides increases, the business can afford to expand and add more workers. The real job creator is the consumer, not the business.

Employers need the money to pay their employees with before the employees can go spend that money on consumer goods.

Where do you think Employers get the money? The consumer. The business would not exist without the consumer. The business was built to meet demand that already existed from the consumer. The consumer comes first, then the business to satisfy their demand and make a profit from it.

Employers will pocket that money before they ever pay employees more.

I guess Donald Trump's running for president is this year's equivalent of his reality TV show, he gets to be in the news, on TV, essentially all over media and social media. I hate to say it but im actually sort of looking forward to the GOP debates this time with him in it. Who knows what horrible things he will say on stage!

I don't think he could actually get the nomination, surely America is smarter than that, but it will be entertaining.

The 1% conspiracy theorist in me says he's in it to distract the GOP voting base into being into him and hating the other fellow, and then dropping out just in time for hatred to be internal from his supporters.
