Those that were hoping for an “economic renaissance” in the United States got some more bad news this week. It turns out that the U.S. economy is in significantly worse shape than the experts were projecting. Retail sales unexpectedly declined in March, total business sales have fallen again, and the inventory to sales ratio has [...]
Whether the situation is manageable or salvageable is dam hard to say. Judging by the looks of things, we’re headed nowhere and fast. It seems we’re on a sinking boat and the authorities have no viable solution, nothing worthwhile to bring to the table.
