Everyone is offering a solution for our economy, but this is not the first time no one listened to what we should have done to prevent this catastrophe.
What has really changed since the "great depression," or even, since our country was founded? The answer is, "A lot has changed : some for better, but some for worse, it seems."
But there is one question that has been making the rounds on the web recently, which can be answered very easily with 2 words... What have we learned in the last 2064 years when Cicero said, "The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." - Cicero - 55 BC
The answer to that one question about what we have learned, in just 2 words, is simply, "Not Much!" This may not be Rome, but considering how great Rome was in it's time, and how magnificent this country is 2064 years after Cicero, we still have a lot to learn!
Let's think about that as we ponder our next moves, laws, restructuring, investments, programs, and life in general!
