When the Ends Don't Meet

I am sure that there are millions of Americans that are asking themselves how much worst things can get. We are on the cusp of a new Great Depression. I don't know about you out there, but there is still a lot of it I don't understand. What I do understand is that it is getting harder and harder to get ends to meet. Cutting back on some things, cutting others, thinking of Plan B, exploring job and housing options are all part of the list.

As the business market shrinks and opportunities shrink as well, it is truly a time to band together, share ideas on how to get through this hopefully in one piece.

What are you doing? What are some of the things that you are considering? What steps have you already taken?

Would love to hear your comments.

Personally I feel like the media is doing a good job at scaring everyone into believing that we are going into this "great depression". Half of the people in the subways, at work, on the street, etc can't even articulate what a recession really is (An extended decline in general business activity, typically two consecutive quarters of falling real gross national product). And as a result they are going to force people to stop making their normal purchases which will only bring the economy down even more. Granted things have gotten a little pricer but no one I know has lost their job or had a rent or mortgage increase as a result. I feel that the more society focuses on how bad the economy is they are going to make it worse by continuously putting that negative energy out there. I have one suggestion look at the upside of things the economy can only go one way from here and thats up! Its just the natural order of things and is bound to happen again in the near future.
