the Economic Crisis and the Dinner Table

Change is the law of life. And those who look only to the past or present are certain to miss the future.
-John F Kennedy
With every choices we make that is beneficial in the short time, potential consequences hide in the Future.
With the many financial choices that made the West economically prosperous in the nineties, comes the consequences of today.–Potential economic Meltdown.
A nation that is afraid to let its people judge the truth and falsehood in an open market is a nation that is afraid of its people.
-John F Kennedy
With the looming Financial crisis of today, many are calling out the old: People who made choices in the interests of Wealth in the nineties are now being acccused today for contributing to potential Depression in the U.S. present time. People always want to find the causes and blame people for greed and injustice.
However I find this unsatisfying in the long run. Its as unsatisfying as asking “What is this person (politician, leader, economic strategist ) gonna do to fix the economy for me? Who is gonna fix everything for me?
All great change in America begins at the dinner table.
It is more important now for people to come together, of all social classes: Brick layer, writer, small business owner, wall street speculator, minister, etc. Its time to open the “dinner table” conversation about How we move through the impending bad economic times.
It time to stop playing the blame games… Time to stop worrying about personal interests… Stop believing that anyone man or any one profession can move us through are difficulties And everyman and woman must ask they can do and ask what their neighbor thinks.
And I hope our societies may be a peaceful productive again, without fear of change in the new global era.
And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.
-John F. Kennedy.
