Not always the best tasting but it was reassuring, healthy and warm. The “answer” is close to mom’s stew. Too much pepper or not enough meat and sometimes over cooked…so add what is needed as you eat and recooperate. Don’t wait forever to get the perfect recipe. Business is starving. And don’t hand all the ingrediants to the same chef that cooked up the last bubble of growth. New (as in next-generation) macros for our childrens financial health will evolve just as surely as the credit card was like crack to this “me” generation. Green will dominate, so get used to it. Invest, develope and embrace it. Teach the world to fish not beg or revolt. Visualize large areas of water filled with desalination plants powered by floating wind/tide/solar arrays pumping life into the new deserts of the warming planet. Science seems to drag behind occasionally so be patient George Jetson. Don’t expect miracles from politicians or preachers or hedge fund managers. Real people solve real probems.

Government supported projects to generate energy from sun, wind, tides and geothermal sources would keep all the unemployed in work for many years to come, and the benefits would be enormous. In work people could pay off their homes, abundant non-polluting energy would stimulate the economy and the oil producers, who started the problems way back by stimulating inflation would get their just rewards.
