It has long been a mystery to me how the Titans of Wall Street and DC could be so successful in kicking the can down the road for as long as they have but I think the answer may be fairly simple. Because the general public chooses to believe that it can just go on and on. When the general public loses faith in the system, things will fall apart quickly. I am not saying here that the general public doesn’t think that the economy is weak or moving in the wrong direction. I think they do. That is far different however than fundamentally thinking that it can’t or won’t get better.
