I thought that I was going crazy a couple of weeks or so ago, I was reading the Economist and the Financial Times and according to them this country is in a recession. And I thought that was crazy, because you would think that the press in this country would be talking about that before the people in other countries, but then I realized that the codewords have changed.
While the papers all of the world have stated that the United States is in a recession and the facts state that housing prices have dropped 15% and gas prices are like million dollars a gallon. In the US this isnâ€™t a recession. This is simply a reevaluation of opportunities. I know that sounds like a slowdown, but itâ€™s not exactly, because itâ€™s better. Itâ€™s more like a â€œlook aroundâ€ for the best deal possible.
And that seven percent unemployment that everyone has plastered across their papers, those people arenâ€™t jobless they are on â€œstaycationsâ€. Isnâ€™t that fabulous? Staying home and enjoying the company of your family pets, your micro dog, which some negative people would call a roach is not only relaxing itâ€™s eco.
