What could we do intead of what our politicians are recommending?

I haven’t really been following anything closely since I started my move. Dealing with a new place and new job doesn’t leave much time for blog reading. But this strikes a chord.

Sometimes it just takes time to heal, (kind of mixing my analogies) and panicking just makes everything worse.

4) Don’t Panic. This is the policy that has cured most recessions. The do anything and do it now mindset feeds panic. I do think this recession will be longer than average and quite deep, it is a concern that it is worldwide.

The economy will recover and its very possible to make things worse by trying to make things better.
