They're predicting the downfall of America again. As someone born in communism and an immigrant, brought here young, and raised in The Bronx, NYC, I have a different take. America indeed has its problems, but when hasn't America had its problems? I grew up in The Bronx, NYC, in the "great 1990s," supposedly when things couldn't get any better here in America.
Good summary of the positives, Louie! You’re so right that have much for which to be grateful in America.
On the other hand, large segments of our governments (Federal, State, municipal), and our commercial and other institutions, are in the hands of people who no longer act on what works, but on what sounds good. That can only go on for so long.
I agree with you that America is anti-fragile, and that’s a good thing, because there are some big bumps in the road ahead.
I really appreciate this perspective Louie. It comes at a good time for me.
