By all accounts, the country’s economy was not this bad because the Great Depression in the late 1920s and early 1930s. The currency markets has been just like the Tower of Terror at Disney World, plummeting nearly 800 points in a very heartbeat, some prominent companies want to the government for an extremely large life jacket, others are increasingly being purchased by your competition at relatively bargain rates, credit availability is tightening, and everybody is wondering how it’ll affect them. Give us a call crazy, however the volatile currency markets fluctuations, the extreme turbulence, and people’s growing unrest (to place it mildly!) are in fact best for all. Often, we only embrace elemental change whenever we are highly motivated or in great discomfort. We think we are able to all concur that we all have been feeling pretty uncomfortable at this time. Rendering it an ideal time and energy to look under the surface, identify the true issues, and devise solutions.
Times like what we’re in pull back the curtain on the structure’s flaws – similar to Dorothy did within the Wizard of Oz – and force us to have a deeper go through the problems. Our fear generally is exposed, driving us to find its root. Quick fixes and band-aids that only address surface problems – just like the $700 billion authorities bailout that has been recently passed – may provide some temporary respite but are nowhere near a long-term answer. What’s compounding the problem for Americans and then for an increasing amount of people around the world is that there surely is no magic pill. Plenty of this is due to the McDonald’s mentality that lots of folks have. We’re hungry, so we drive to an easy food joint, order our meal with the drive-up, shell out the dough at the initial window, pick it up at another window, and scarf down the fatty, salty, somewhat empty calories as quickly once we can.
