Just wanted to extend a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all reading this blog. Fortunately we had children and in-laws with us during the holidays and it was wonderful.
This should be an interesting year – globally. We can see from the US bail outs how interdependent our companies and countries are so we may rise and fall together. I am not particularly optimistic (short-term) because of the adversion to facing our problems head on. We create artificial solutions which only buy us some time – in hopes that somehow things change enough to avert a complete melt down. None of us want severe economic times but we will most likely have to experience more pain than we have thus far. Bite the bullet and lets get on with recovery.
