It seems that everywhere you turn these days, it's all bad news about the economy. Every company is having massive layoffs and many companies here in LA aren't hiring at all.
Everyone says it's going to get worse before it gets better.
And as things get worse, people cut back on everything from netflix to cell phones to eating out. And the cycle gets worse as those cutbacks cause more businesses to slow down, and more layoffs ensue.
It is a scary time for many indeed.
However, I hope you all have your health and appreciate that at least we live in a country where we have enough food to eat. Many people do not. (Of course, many in the US do not - but we are not in that situation, right?)
I still cannot believe we got to this point.
Obama is not a magician. No matter what, the economy is @#$#'d and likely will be for some time. At least through 2009 and into 2010.
Some have said it might be 3-4 years before the economy stabilizes and recovers.
All I know is frickin' Bush. How anyone voted for that idiot is beyond me.
If you voted for you him you're to blame for the situation we're in.
I hope things get better.
Because right now, I am ok.
But many of my friends are not.
And it's hard to see your friend struggling and worrying about their rent and bills.
Again, though, we all have our health and enough food to eat.
Things will get better.
It's a great time to be an entrepreneur.
And to learn to love ramen!!!
