  • I don't think it will be. I think it will becom more reliable, but not as robust.

    American's will mover further and further away from consumerism...we're not racking up as much debt and people are saving more money than in the past few years.

  • I don't know that it will ever be what it was. I think a lot depends on future legislation and where this country is headed. If we can turn some things around I think it will take about 15 to 20 years.  I'm a pessimist when it comes to this stuff.

  • Years? How about decades? The tax bill for our children hasn't even come due yet.

  • We need to start closing loopholes that ship jobs overseas, start producing tangible products and cut back on imports.

  • jobs come back after the big board does for 6 months. Has it come back yet? I dunno, October has been fantastic. But many are saying Oct 31 will be another crash because of recent prop ups by the Fed. There just isn't any money, it is being held while the wealthy wait.
    I've heard April 2011 as a comeback and I've heard 10 years of 10% UE. Nobody really knows.
    The time to plan for a recession is always, not in the midst of it.

  • It will need to be a different type of economy in order to be robust again.
