What America learned about economics and politics in the last eight years?

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.

Why do Entrepreneurs take risk to accomplish their dreams?

If you asked some entrepreneurs today, they would readily tell you that they were born as an entrepreneur and not just made one.

The way of entrepreneurship can sometimes start at a very early age in life.  Such characteristics are genetically inherent in the basic culture and foundation of an individual’s personality.

Over the years, my own experiences as being independent and having my own small business endeavors have been always my passion and the key to my own personal success, fulfillment and happiness.

Have tried working full time and part time questioning if entrepreneurship is the real way to go for my life’s purpose.

In spite the odds, trial and errors, with ot without mentors it always boils down to having that independence of working for myself and accomplishing ideals for the betterment of my family and community.

Recently,  because of the challenging times in our economic crisis, people will say that having mutliple streams of income is perhaps the way to survive.  However, we must always acknowledge what goes on in our personal lives, family, relationships and health.

Sometimes,  having other challenges might not be as easy as some might think as the key is not to lost focus on your primary niche or business idea.   It might not make sense right now but when you have studied it over and over through the years, we just have to stick to what we believe will work for us.

Money is a consequence need to stay in business but also does not drive the entrepreneur in achieving his or her dream alone.    The problem with our society is that we use entrepreneurism to inform and educate so that it can help create jobs, booze the economy, give credibility to government and at the same time be a business money making venture in itself for us.

We need to realize that our goals will be really successful if there is a continuity in our efforts. We might be able to teach the best business classes, show entrepreneurs how to make creative plans but how many in the end do really make it and how many fail after all the time we have spent in helping educate emergeing entrepreneurs?

These days, it is such hard to find an entrepreneur that will be ready to lost everything he has in order for his business to succeeed.   This spirit is the ultimate key to great leadership that we have to look for.  This people go into their dream businesses to achieve greater things not just for them but also for the community and society.

The challenge is how do we really support such individuals?  Perhaps, they might just need a certian ingredient, financial liquidity, support and reinforcements so they can really achieve their dreams.

Today’s entrepreneurial environment has change. It is no longer about having a high credit rating, collateral or financial capabilities, it is more about perseverance, the dare to risk everything and focusing to succeed in their dream.

California’s Day in Equality Liberation History – May 15, 2008

The California Supreme Court recently received an outstanding ovation from the GLBT community citing their “EQUALITY” efforts as a court of the people.

For some, it was a very emotional day celebrating the end of unequality on a democratic yet liberal state in America’s land of the people anthology.

A battle of argumentative deliberations still faces the allowing of same sex marriage in such a conservative state.  Yet, let us not forget to respect as well the beliefs of other people as how holy the embodiment of marriage is between a man and a woman.

However, to my minute understanding, this is besides the point. It is about the socio-cultural evolution of what makes a person’s existence to co-exist which is why we have been created in God’s liking and love.

Long live the dream, hopefully not a political tool but yet what this battle is all about.

May God Bless America, land of the people, a nation where dreams comes to realities.

Bush on Environment climate change – lameduck too late or not

 

President George Bush announced today his action plan on climate change. I believe he is really sincere in living a legacy behind like the rest of other American Presidents Roosevelt, Clinton, etc..,

However, a lot of environmentalist are also outrage that this might be a lame duck policy as just to put his name together with history files.

Well, for whatever it is the important thing is we are now realizing what the global environment changes has done to society.

That’s not to say, how oil prices has affected the economic downturn or the effects after years of enrichment by the oil barons.

It’s about time. A time to change from war and oil mentality yet not Obama’s save the elite culture but what is the working class all about. The unions and most of all the low income earners and those in poverty.

Save the planet and help us in our charities by supporting our mission at:

Les Hinton, steps down from News Corp. to be with Dow Jones

I remember Les Hinton as an ally of Billionaire Investor Rupert Murdoch in Australia and the Uk. This guys has incredible wits and business genius.

I guess the $5 billion Dow jones merger is indeed a very big deal. Hence, James Murdoch, Murdoch’s annointed son was promoted to replace Les. Kudos and Good Luck to Les.

Merchandising Trends Aggressive on Christmas in October?

Columbus Day, Oct. 8 most of the Westfield stores in the Northern California area had some Halloween stuff. However, they had more Christmas decors and trees coming out of their shelves.  Toys, huge, huge sale prices from 20 to 70% off can be found at Walmart, Even Internet Shopping sites are showcasing some of the sellers geared toward gift giving and the likes,.  Looks like if we can adjust  X’mas to be earlier in Octgober we would.

I think the idea is get to make wallets open so people can start spending.   A typical Sunday afternoon would be foods, movies, games, and shopping. Today, it’s more  foods, either a movie or a game only, window shopping, or grocery shopping. The shopping even though tempting is kinda hard when you think of the credit card bills and collectors.

In the late 80’s I remember doing hallmark greeting cards made from special natural paper. We also created an entire product line concept that will go with it like notebooks, journals, pen holders making a collection. Yet we also had to manufacturer products geared towards people’s income bracket.

I think today is the best time to create products that can be ordinary basic things that we use on the daily basis and add some kind of color, decor, art value so we won’t be ashamed in wrapping them up to give as presents for the holidays. 

 Any thoughts out there?
