When you look at the economies in abstract, you could even think they can be folded and unfolded like origami, to fit the desired picture.
Here you have empty properties and shops, there you have unemployed people, and the country is paying out social security benefits and not getting taxes and rates. And if the outgoing is greater than the revenue, it should give pause for thought to consider alternative strategies. Nothing is perfect, if one idea does not work, another must be tried, and somehow the right shape will be arrived at.
That said, in trusting in the judgement of people in power,I have the utmosts faith that Recovery can stay on track and gain strength, if the right solutions are implemented.
Just a little clue which clarified in my mind this afternoon whilst I was sitting at a bench after a long stroll :The stockmarkets are going to become as previously storehouses of peoples' wealth, the next (but not the only) engine of growth.
What I have said about the DOW and the FTSE remains true under that light, so rejoice,
God's grace is with people of the world, and Recovery shall remain on course.
The only proviso being that Oil price should remain affordable, and more regions should have negotiated peace instead of warfare.
