A while ago, the economy went to hell, and along with it, a whole lot of petrodollars. The job market's shot, and inflation is, well, inflation. But why?
I think I have the answer. And it is fixable. What happened a year ago when the Dow-Jones really began falling and all of us began losing our jobs (except me, Eaglie... never had a job, never will)?
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. The Seventh and Last Book. The End to End all Endy Ends. We illustrate the aftermath:
(Graph from Dow-Jones Indexes. Really.)
What could the world do after that? Let the dollar RISE?! Ha! The decay of the job market, stocks, and a black man getting past the presidential primaries... it ALL happened at once. The world might never be the same.
There is a glimmer of hope on the horizon. We have the answer to allay our imminent demise, and we have J.K. Rowling to thank next December with her newest book in the series.
Then the whole cyclical thing starts over again.
