I am in no way qualified to talk about economic policy. So I have to look to others that are more educated and experienced on the subject.
Last night I read this article by Clayton Makepeace.
As I read it, I realized that I actually knew a lot of this, but like many – never really connected the dots.
Anyway, I think the article will be a real eye opener!
I personally feel that the market had to correct itself. The continuous upward spiral was unsustainable. There is no way it could have continued for very long. We’ve been teetering for the last 10 years, but no one wanted to face it.
Maybe things like virtue, and ethics, and common sense will come back in style?
Maybe people will start living life instead of always being under pressure to want more and more? How big a house to you really need to be happy? How many cars do you really need? Is that what really makes you happy?
I hope people will take the time to re-evaluate what’s really important in life.
The train wreck has already happened. You survived it. You and your family walked away from the smoldering embers alive. Now – what do you want to do with the rest of your life?
Like surviving any tragedy, you might come away with a different perspective.
Has the economic crisis changed the way you view your life?
