What the U.S. economy needs right now, desperately, is new demand, and new investment. We are doing the precise opposite. This is where the next crash will come from. This is how the next recession begins. Continue reading

If you made mistakes in the past, you can learn if you change your mind. If there are lesser angels controlling your mind and your heart, you are the only one who can beat them.
