Today we are going to do a little history lesson, and by the end, we’ll draw a few conclusions.
From the seat of a person who dispenses financial advice for a living, one could be forgiven for believing there must have been a time in the recent past that was quite idyllic. Why? The constant chorus of those concerned about “new instability” or “these difficult times” or “all this uncertainty” all implies one thing: That there must have been a time where stability and certainty ruled the roost.
Today we are going to do a little history lesson, and by the end we’ll draw a few conclusions. The point will not to be wrap current economic or political circumstances in a pretty bow – but rather, to contrast the present to the past with history and logic.
The conclusions will either concern you or encourage you. But the information will be informative.
