What America learned about economics and politics in the last eight years?
Fighting for freedom and terror are prime ingredients in a democracy. Yet economic survival is a vital part of our existence. So as we go through one of the greatest depressions in history and we look back in the events it will be hard to judge and pre-judge what went wrong.
Yet, some of the facts are very clear that we need to stop spending a $1 Million dollars a day (if the gossips are right) over a war, stop the political games of who to elect, why not to elect them and get the blaming syndrome every single day on the air waves.
Sometimes, it is really intriguing that with all the smartness of the experts how can a mere recession not be predicted and correctly theoretically evaluated.
It is a lot of hard work to master the economic indicators but yet acceptance may have been a big scenario on how we got to this mess. While we take a step back and rethink the best alternatives to fix what needs to be fix and can perhaps learned from our past mistakes,.
What about foreign relations and diplomacy? Was this ever an option we should have thought before we went to war? Should we be looking for a commander in chief that has the guts to make huge “changes” for a new direction, someone who believes in foreign policy or someone who has the political experience and clout. All these questions are big discussion points right now but we have to consider each and every aspect as otherwise we are going back to square one again.
This no longer about either which party should be running Pennsylvania Avenue but who has the right leadership that will take America out of this mess. Both of the adjectives used like “change and experience” are necessary to battle through what America has finally learned from the economics and politics in the last eight years.
The case today is like a bankruptcy receivership. The next president gets to deal with it, act fast and simultaneous, be very firm and decisive not to mention extremely open to ideas and criticisms. On top of these are issues on housing, universal health care, social security and Medicare, and rising unemployment. All caught in the magnitude of economic turmoil, credit crisis, foreclosures, bankruptcies and government bail outs.
