No Lebron James? lol He still mad from the last ECF :D

Sounds pretty cool... surprised no Lebron, Kobe, Rose though or Jordan for that matter... but he probably would have to deal with each player trying to dunk on and hard foul him.

I dont really see whats the problem.

If the players are supporters why not support him by helping to raise money through a game.

Tyler Hansbourugh was the weirdest supporter imo btw

exactly my reaction when i read about it.. you would think all profit goes to charity, but this guy wants people to pay ****ing $100-5000 for tickets that will later go to advertising himself. "YES WE CAN", take advantage of dumb people like every other president.. ***** never gonna "CHANGE", u can believe in that..

Consumer spending that is directed towards a campaign does not facilitate as much economic growth as regular consumer spending towards businesses.

11-19-2011, 10:29 PM
And I think this is a great idea for Obama supporters. Rather than directly donate money, at least they getting a great opportunity to see NBA players as some type of product for their money.


A pretty unique idea if you ask me.

I'm not voting for this guy in 2012.

For me, as a moderate Republican, it really depends on the candidate they put out. A conservative Republican will make a lot of cuts to education and Medicare/Social Security while a more moderate Republican will make some cuts but also remove a lot of regulations and taxes to promote economic growth for all economic classes.


Obama will definitely spur the economy with his Keynesian Economics Model, but I am afriad that our deficit will hinder our growth unless he urges Democrats to make the neccessary cuts to military spending and Medicare.

Actually the people working at the event (arena managers etc) will be hired, food at the game will be purchased etc. Money raised for the campaign will be used to purcahse things/hire people/create wealth.

Consumption spending definitely applies to events/political campaign donations and the multiplier effect will occur.

Is it the best form of consumption spending for the economy? I doubt it, but its better than many alternatives.

Getting government loans and grants for poor as well as well deserving people to attend elite universities is a bad thing now?

There is plenty to criticize but the fact that Obama was less wealthy growing up is not one of them.

He paid back all government loans and the grants are just that grants and accomplished their task creating powerful public citizens out of people who wouldnt have an opportunity otherwise.
Obama still had to work to get into Harvard, Harvard Law School and to be the editior of the Harvard Law Review.

Rgardless of the politics, this seems like an insane criticism

all benefits will go to his campaign, so no, there is no actual benefit to our economy. There is only benefit to Obama's campaign.

My bad that I pointed out that he wasn't a young man who worked 3 jobs to get through college, and has lived off entitlement his entire life.

Look, not trying to turn this into a political issue. I am about as big of a non-fan of him as there is. But the obvious is, ALL PRESIDENTS ARE INTELLIGENT, you don't get that far by being stupid.

I am dropping politics. I was responding to a poster, on why Obama even had the opportunity to attend an Ivy League school, nothing more.

What does the campaign do with the money pray-tell? They spend it right? That spending benefits our economy. You might disagree with their spending (TV ads, campaign literature, employees etc) since you disagree with the political message but the spending is good for the economy and it technically is consumption spending. Political campaigns are consumption spending and are good for the economy especially when demand is low.

And again are there employees running this event? What do the salaries they recieve allow them to do?

Hawkeye15

from 2000-2006, the economy, stock market, unemployment rate, gas prices, and anything else that someone would consider is a strong economy, was absolutely amazing. And then the democrats won the Senate, and it went downhill.

Now, I am not attempting to pin it on the Dems, it was simply a matter of timing when you factor in Bush's spending us bankrupt, through wars, but please don't act like our current Pres has done a thing to reverse one portion of the downturn. He was given a drip, called the plumber, and its turned into the faucet pouring out money.

I don't care about this event, I won't watch it, let the players support who they like, its their choice. I simply find it pathetic that Obama is basically having a charity event for himself, using NBA players, when he could use it for anything, like maybe infusing the private sector with a couple of bucks, and donating it to the event workers, or a public institute.

I was merely replying to you and others who criticized this as putting people further in debt.

This consumption spending on campaign (the money in the facility as well as all the money in the campaign which is spent nearly or at 100%) helps aggregate demand.

Its definately a godo thing for the economy during this time to spend rather than save on the macrao level

Those signs were all nominal variables. No real variables were actually increasing or strong. Trade deficit, unbalanced budget, decrease in production, increase in foreign oil dependency were some of the many signs of a weak economy. These changes started decades ago so it's impossible to pin it on anybody in particular.

It's No secret in Canada that the President is a figurehead. The Prez is pretty much the liason between the consolidated power structures & the people. The Prez doesn't actually do anything. He walks around, shakes hands, signs bills & hosts bball games...public relations.

Sucks a thread like this can't stay open because people just can't politicize and attack everything.
