Crash Course In Crashing An Economy
(Up To & Including A Global Economy)
Anyone interested in understanding the financial issues in the world today would be STRONGLY advised to watch some of these tutorials on the financial
structure of our global economy. (Links provided in the next message)
If you are already well versed in economic principals then this is old news. For those that are uninformed about economics and how it effects you
personally, you should, at the very LEAST learn the basics, so that you can understand what's going on with your 401K or Certificate Of Deposit
(CD's) or even your mortgage and why it's taking a tremendous pounding at the behest of the powers that be...
I didn't fully understand the financial principals of our own economy much less any global economy, nor was I really interested until this year; I
am, and always have been, a computer and electronics professional and lived in Silicon Valley during the boom of the 'personal computer revolution';
I could go on for hours with funny anecdotes and stories of making money hand over fist at many of the highest profile companies where I've been
fortunate enough to have been employed in the Bay Area (and currently, elsewhere.)
When living in an environment of daily, constant boom ... who cares about the details of the super rich or their evil, inhumane plans or even how they
got there... A friend of mine owned a big 4000+ sq ft. home in the foothills overlooking Silicon Valley and had 4 or 5 cars including a bright red
Magnum PI style Ferrari, going to work in his bathrobe, working from home decades before that was even an option for the mainstream worker bees;
Bzzzz; Life Is Good.
In my opinion, that boom went bust in the early 1990's. Although California's economy is still strong in technology radiating from Silicon Valley,
with a strong infrastructure in the surrounding suburbs of the bay area, I choose to watch that economy from afar these days. My gut sensation of
collapse was correct. I'm somewhat sad for California these days, but as they cold-heartedly say in Cali, Deal With It.
It is an incredibly gorgeous state with many breath-taking natural areas and remarkable coastlines, wonderful weather (and babes), but I can't help
thinking in the back of my mind "I told ya!"; but I digress...
Following California's lead into a fiscal devastation isn't the lead that I want to see for the rest of our country. We need to avert that by all
means within our power. First step is educating ourselves in the financial basics. This will foster informed decision making that MUST start from the
bottom and permutate up and into local and state government. Remember, We own the states and collectively, in turn United States (not borg!). Meaning,
I'm encouraging all people to contact your local and state government representatives after you have a clear understanding of what is really
happening. If you already understand, get on it! else, keep reading...
The links that I'm listing here are only a small part of the tutorials on finance (at all levels) that I've found to be informative and I've
researched many of the claims and cross referenced much of the information presented in them that seemed inconsistent and I believe they are all sound
tutorials with some real eye-openers for the uninformed. I'm not a financial wizard. I am, however, logical and motivated to 'fix broken things'
like any other man. And fix it RIGHT like any AMERICAN man.
