We CAN continue to burn fossil fuels and delay setting (or even meeting existing) emissions targets. We CAN fix the economy by printing more paper. We CAN fight two insanely expensive wars and lower taxes at the same time.

What America really needs now is a great big injection of fear and uncertainty – and it sure is getting it. Risk should create negative feedback but people just kept handing out those loans and credit cards as if there was no chance of problems. The bottom fell out, and what happened? First, people panicked. Then they sobered up and realized that maybe they were a little too laid-back, had a little too much faith in things working out OK. They remembered that bad things can actually happen.

People need to be fearful, worried, concerned, cautious, even anxious. We’re able to feel those emotions because they have been retained throughout millennia of intense evolutionary pressure. In other words, those emotions are useful. There is still a place for them in American life.

People need to become more thrifty, more creative, more resourceful, and live lives that are more simple and austere. All of that is happening. People are saving what they have, reusing old things, fixing broken things instead of throwing them in the landfill and buying a shiny new one. Also, the EPA noted that US emissions dropped 6% in 2009 (compared to 2008). These are all positive trends, in my view.

2. What is the appropriate response on the part of Government? It seems that the current Chancellor is wedded to an ideological driven policy which takes little for no account of the common good?

I think a Portland Occupy Portland protester said it all with his sign. “If I still had a home, I’d be there now.”

By: Oren1 Thu, 13 Oct 2011 14:19:43 +0000 Excessive negative thinking is as bad as excess positive thinking that isn’t reality. When both sides are made up and you all go dancing on faux results you get what you deserve.

I’m pessisimistic that the politicians can solve anything. Now there’s reality staring us in the face.

Well… this article is… interesting…
I got curious and i read the autor’ previous article, with the title:
“World moves closer to 2008-style cliff”
And found something like:
“There is a mess in the euro zone and signs that GDP has stopped increasing in much of the world, but neither the markets nor any large economies have fallen off a 2008-style cliff. Not yet, anyway.”
“But there are good reasons to hope that the global economic fabric will not be torn.”
“But these bulwarks might not be strong enough to resist a Lehman-like unexpected calamity.”
“Everyone should hope that does not happen. After Lehman, the world’s authorities could offer effective relief. But now policy rates can no longer be cut and more stimulus, either monetary or fiscal, would be as likely to increase panic as to calm nerves.”

hmm… dramatic?…
The dangerous power of negative thinking… maybe is not about confidence in the markets(cause they only lose confidence if something big happens)… but about more people start thinking more about negative things that used to pass by without the proper attention… even because the problems already started to affect the people…
I grew up watching that american cold war movies about capitalism vs comunism… when would i imagine the capitalist people of america occupying wall street…
