Blessing In Disguise
This financial and economic crisis will, I think, eventually be seen as a blessing in disguise. It has brought to a rapid end the denial that was almost universal about the state of the economy and forced everyone to face the tough realities. It has caused the 'market fundamentalism' that was the reigning economic ideology to simply implode and collapse like the World Trade Center. It has forced the governments of the world to unite in order to simply survive economically. And it is helping us to avoid the normal distractions in our Presidential election by forcing to focus on what is really important. God bless this crisis.
