What Is Wrong With The Economy?

[pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”30%”][/pullquote]I went to see the movie Final Destination with a few friends. It cost me alone close to twenty bucks for the ticket, a small bag of popcorn and a coke.

 I bought MacDonald’s that cost me $6 for a regular breakfast meal.

The day before, I bought a tin of coffee at the grocery store and it cost me $9.95.

(We’re talking Maxwell House not some fancy imported coffee.)

Why are things so expensive these days!?

It now costs a family close to one hundred dollars a day to live decently.

When I was a young adult with my own apartment, I was working three jobs just to meet ends.

A few years ago, if you were unemployed it wasn’t such a big deal.

There were jobs and plenty of opportunities in a land that was figuratively overflowing with milk and honey.

Today, you can be employed, work overtime, and still starve at the same time.

I tell you something isn’t right about the world today. The economy is not great.

You know it and I know it.

Military forces stay on guard  if for some reason everything collapses in a rash of riots, fires, and all out violence.

The rising of the Debt Ceiling at the last hours lowered the US credit rating, causing an effect on the average American. Expect an increase when you shop and pay your bills.


But as much as it looks like a bunch of doom and gloom…

There are some men and women, great leaders with panoramic vision, who see it as a world of opportunity.

Just a bit of real talk… Thanks for reading.

UPDATE 2013:

The economy is better. Opportunities and jobs are opening up now more than ever.
