All week long we have been witnessing a breakdown in global markets, or perhaps better stated – general public confidence. Gee, why would that be, we wonder? Why is it that the general public is not so easily convinced that all will be okay? Where is the usual confidence in their elected and non-elected leaders who've been given license to run the world, practically speaking?
Well, we don't want to be the ones who say, "We told you so," but we did. And besides our publishing efforts here at the Daily Bell we have been trying our best to help spread the word as it relates to the oncoming financial hurricane (Hurricane Reality) for more than ten years now. Has it helped? Absolutely, for some. But as Jim Rogers often says, "I keep on talking about the same issues but no one seems to listen." We can relate to that sentiment.
However, for the most part – despite the ridicule, both public and private – I feel that there has been ample opportunity for people to educate themselves and take personal responsibility rather than wait for their elected or non-elected leaders to solve the very problems they themselves have caused. For anyone to believe they truly care and desire to do anything other than tighten the grip of their rule is foolhardy at best.
