The solution to the negative savings rate is really simple. The money saved by banning the old light bulbs must by law be deposited in a savings account.

Lets also prohibit the sale of big screen TVs to people who do not have a certain government approved savings balance. Those big screen buyers are the very same people who are too dumb to know how to vote. You just cannot leave economic decisions to people who are that stupid.

I'm trying to decide if the problem is that people don't think, can't think, or won't think. I would guess that most nanny-state legislation is a result of the latter. Much easier to offload the responsibility of making decisions to the government than it is to actually do your own thinking and research.

Remember all the uproar a few years ago with the talking Barbie that said, "Math is hard"? Yet, this is the same exact thing. Hmmm...I smell another rant coming...
