It doesn’t bring me any joy when I warn people that America is on the threshold of economic, social and political upheaval (it also doesn’t help business). The fact that the overwhelming number of people in the financial services industry (and the media that reports on them) are card-carrying members of the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd, prevents the masses from appreciating how dire things really are (and greatly aids the sales of financial products and the “real” wealth management the financial services industry is concern about – their own!).
To those who can truly appreciate how many people are just one paycheck away from serious troubles, I commend you for being a realist and hopefully preparing to be the exception to the rule among the masses.
