Friedman's column May 25,2005

We Have Serious Problems

Reading the Friedman column and the posts, three conclusions emerge:

1. We, the people of the U.S.A. have have some very serious problems.

2. There's plenty of blame: Bush, Cheney, the multi-nationals, the NY Times, Thomas Friedman, American voters, the Democratic Party, the Republican Party and a few others.
Reminds me of the old Pogo cartoon aphorism:"We have met the enemy and he is us."

3. No one has yet has made a serious attempt to figure out what is to be done.

I regret to have to say that I, personally, do not have the slightest idea of what needs to be done. It may be as little as "nothing at all - the pendulum will swing and things will get better." Or, it may be as much as "sell all your US Dollar denominated assets and move to India or China."

I call on contributors to this Forum to put forth some ideas on what needs to be done.
I promise not to flame anyone.
