Since for the first time in a long time I know we are in good hands, in terms of our president, and politics will be politics, I want to expand questions from all of you about things you are worried about. I was doing a lot of stock analysis which seems pointless right now, but if there are other things that will effect the whole, but you have a personal investment in, feel free to post a question about it. Here’s an example of a question like that: Will the Toyota plant in Kentucky close this year? Or whatever you want. Even if it is more personal, as long as you feel others will get something out of the answer, please post.
For me right now the economy is the major concern. But I feel we are going to have to ride it out for the next couple of years. I do feel that this spring another bill will be passed that will change things more dramatically for the better and the economy will start to show slow movement toward recovery.
But don’t get too excited, it’s going to take at least the next 2 years to really build momentum again. In the mean time we will all learn a tremendous amount and I hope that as a result we will learn the lessons our grandparents and great grandparents learned during the Depression. They not only learned how to save their pennies, but how to plan for the future and think long term. This ideology has fallen so out of style, ironically it was “conservatives” who weren’t thinking much about conserving for the future. But it could be that this down turn is the very thing that saves us in the end. We are in such a desperate ecological situation, perched on some very scary earth changes which we still have the power to turn around. Now that instant gratification qualifies as obscene, we may actually be able to save our planet while saving our economy.
Best wishes and many blessings to all of you good people,
