Out With The Old

This we can hope for. The last year was an illustration of how government officials around the world can forget who gives them power. Workers, businesspeople, and taxpayers pay their wages, fund their social programs and armies.
The politicians would have us believe that they have earned all of the money they spend, yet they spend it frivolously, and they are all spending more than they bring in. This debt crisis will end with bad results. A new global currency where all debt is written off, wars, or default. There are no other options.
These politicians keep kicking the debt can down the road thinking it will somehow fix itself or the next ruler will get to deal with it.
The new year will bring more debt. That is one prediction that will be accurate. Brace yourself for more of the same.
