If America does manage to avoid recession and slowly begins to pull out of this mire, it will be testimony to its underlying strengths. It still has huge advantages over other rich countries: a younger, less-taxed population, a more innovative economy and, for now at least, the dollar as the global reserve currency. If only it had the political leaders to match, its chance of avoiding recession would be far better than one in two.
“If only [we] had the political leaders to match…” On both sides of the aisle. Here’s hoping we all — no matter the party affiliation — vote for the leaders we need next time we get a chance, from local politics all the way up.
