During times of uncertainty, and I am focused on economic uncertainty here, be certain. This might best be summed up by the dictum, “This too shall pass.” The United States of America is suffering from massive divisiveness in Washington. The U.S. must make some tough decisions going forward, about how to deal with its fiscal house. Intractable politics have prevented Washington from effectively dealing with the dynamics of overspending, debt and the national debt ceiling. What we see are stopgap measures, not long term solutions.
