Could it just fix itself?
In the news lately I am seeing a huge influx of information regarding approval polls of something. One of the latest is who is being blamed for the current economic crisis. Surprise that the banks are being blamed the most for it and then George Bush Jr. This is not a shocker considering they are highly suspect in the current economic crisis. With President Obama being elected only a handful of people are saying it’s his fault, in fact 42% of Americans are saying the country is on the right track. (Washington Post, March 31, 2009: Blame for Downturn Not Fixed on Obama) I was a huge fan of saying that once a new president is elected the economy would turn around. I believe that any change would have spurred the economy around, rather that people seeing change, make them change and would help to make things better. With history we have seen that all recessions have a trough, and that a lot of presidents loose elections because bad economic problems. But would all recessions end if we did nothing and let them run their course? Do we need to do anything at all, or would a simple change of thought help to pull us from despair.
