The story that the public is getting drives me crazy. Like you I’ve watch the indicators like the velocity of money and the Baltic Dry Index continue downward on an accelerating slope. I read the number of people what have allegedly given up look for work and it is distressing. Even more so that they are not counted in the unemployment numbers.
Here in the Midwest I also have noticed what seems a lot more fields lying fallow. Yet I drive past two commercial farms with dairy barns that run over 1/2 mile long.
The stock market is up, use your credit card to buy what you want, and enjoy life. That motto is not only the motto of individuals but also governments. Is this a repeat of the Roaring 20’s?
Everything looks out of balance. So the only thing I can think to do is try and keep balance in my life.
