Finance

Please wake up and smell the coffee!

There are some very serious events unfolding on a geopolitical and financial scale that need attention by an adult.

Do you remember the RTC, Resolution Trust Corp? Perhaps you more easily recollect the burst of the bubble in 2008? I’m sure you heard your parents or grandparents talk about the Great Depression. See as we all know, when we choose to admit it, everything is connected. Yes, everything.

You could say, “No man is an island.” Or maybe you prefer to use, “What goes around, comes around.” The current administration prefers their mantra from a Chicago church, “Your chickens will come home to roost.”

Take a minute and review a wide ranging article on David Stockman’s blog. http://davidstockmanscontracorner.com/wall-street-remains-clueless-even-as-the-brown-stuff-heads-straight-into-the-fan/.

Stockman is not a timid fellow. He also is smart, he served in the White House as a Presidential advisor on economics many years ago. Unfortunately a lot of what he says is too obvious to ignore. You and I need to be well informed, make some decisions and take action.

Financially the United States is not in good shape. The current leaders are clearly “in over their heads.” The people, oh the wonderful, smart and oh so clever people, are apathetic, dull and confused. My question to you is: “What are you going to do about it?” This entire state of affairs, the current condition of the United States, is going to impact you, your bank account and your family’s future.

As many really smart people have said: “If you continue to do what you have always done, you will get the same results you have always gotten.” Are you satisfied with the current state of affairs? Ready to act? Well, that’s what DGR is all about. Let’s kick in the afterburners and make something tangible, practical and positive happen! It starts here and now!
