The Economy ( or lack thereof.)

Good Day Good People;

The subject for today's post is, as you see, The Economy.

I think it's a fair guess that there are about as many different opinions floating around on this subject as there are stars in our galaxy (maybe more).

There is an old quotation, who no one seems to know the origin of, which goes as follows.
"If all the Economists in the World were laid end to end, they still wouldn't reach a conclusion" (Amen)

I have heard, both via the Print Media and the T.V. version of same, more theories about the financial well being of our country than I can remember, and frankly, I don't trust any of them.

There are of course, polls on the subject, just as there are on about any subject you care to mention, but depending on whose poll you believe, you will either go out shopping for a yacht, or a tall building to jump off of.

Mineselluf believes that a prudent course of action is simple. As Follows;

1. Don't go in debt right now.

2.Don't quit your job in a huff, or any other mood.

3. Save as much as you can.

4. Shop for the best price on each item you are contemplating purchasing.

5. Use coupons whenever possible.

6. Remember the old Amish saying; "Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without."

seems like pretty good advice to me.

Stay Well
