We had an opportunity to set our economy on a stronger recovery course, but folksy ignorance and partisan petulance reigned instead. So now it appears more and more likely that our bad situation is going to get even worse. Double dip? Seems that way. The time wasted ignoring science, facts, and experts has run its dangerous course. We need better leaders, smarter leaders, and a more engaged and better informed public loudly demanding solutions that will work, not half-baked opinions drawn on political lines.
Don’t look at Asia right now unless you have a strong stomach.
