The media issues threatening statements about America’s economy nearly constantly. Whether they’re talking about the stock market, jobs or the financial sector in general, one main consensus is pushed. This is that America is economically unsound. Certainly there are some structural issues which present in our economy and our economic system. We import more than we export, we’re funding our own annilation by purchasing oil from countries which hate Democracy and as a nation, we are so divided that it will present as a national security issue when push comes shove geo-politically. However, the larger picture presents hope for the future and common sense solutions for the present. If we remember virtues which every American (regardless of party affilation, religious conviction, gender or ethnic background) can agree on such as education, community, generosity and sacrifice for the future, then we can have a truly dazzling future.
