    Mr. Reich made an excellent video. Nice to see this video, because if you google him; he’s predicted ‘a double dip’ at least 6 x since 09/08. It freaked me out the first few times, but I think he was just extremely worried when he wrote that. I do like the tape though. He really means well, but every “bump in the road” has frightened him enough to write about ‘a double dip.’ (Please stop scaring me, Mr. Reich) If they stablize Greece & Portugal, the economy here should stabilize.

      Thanks cat48…I will view the video…I clicked on the comments first because I didn’t want to hear him yet again talking about doom and gloom.

    Clear and interesting…..one takeaway for me, is that this all started with Reagan. This is a thirty some year mess the President has been handed. And, with fewer jobs, the “middle class” is fighting each other, instead of fighting together, for each other. We’ve been engaged in a dog eat dog competition, which Reagan started. I lived in California when he was governor, he did the same thing. California’s problems started when he was governor. He hated education, he hated nurses, he hated police, he hated anyone who worked for a salary, and said so out loud. He started that same kind of hatred in the country as a whole. It took a while to come to fruition, but we are seeing the long term results now.And this can’t be erased in two years! It’s going to take more time, which the American people doesn’t want to admit.

      I think if the folks (our elected officials, economists, Wall Street, etc) would tell the truth, the American people would have a better understanding about what it will take to get us through this mess…but these people know that fear will cause folks (Americans) to not only be impatient but also unreasonable.

    I wish this would be played on every channel every day. Maybe more people could see what is happening.

    This video is great…President Obama, us and and everyone else (who give a damn) should use this video/simple explanation regarding the problem and what it will take to get us out of this mess. Americans can’t and won’t sit still long enough to hear/learn the facts if it’s not a sound bite…we have to keep it short, sweet and simple.
