How do you feel about the economy?
The New York Times is asking you to “enter the word that best describes your current mood” about the economy. Currently, some of the most popular negative views are are: concerned, angry, depressed, scared, powerless, tired, disgusted, pessimistic, and betrayed. But others feel: hopeful, optimistic, excited, thankful, and determined.
How can you feel thankful about the economy? This post shows a video about why we should be thankful our situation isn’t worse. If you still have a job, you can be thankful about that.
But I doubt these optimists will be pleased in the future because I don’t think Mr. Obama can turn this country around judging by what he has done so far: tax and spend. How can this help the citizens and fix our problem? It is impossible to spend yourself out of debt. But Obama is trying.
But is it better to be hopeful or pessimistic? I would say the best is to just be prepared for whatever may come from this rough economy.
