We are in a bad way. The fund managers that we have given all our money to have run out of insane and incredibly risky things to invest in. This is a bad thing. Without these risky and insane things for our fund managers to invest in we are not going to be able to generate the wealth that they have become accustomed to. What we need to do is to think outside the box. We need to come up with new investment schemes.
This is what our government is doing. They are generating a critical mass of depression and misery such that it can be sold as a commodity and compared with other countries. At this point we can have trading in misery and depression between countries which will generate investment opportunities and will allow our fund managers the chance to make more insane and risky investments.
