American economic whizzes are already hard at work setting up for the next great recession.
Building upon the feeble economic foundations that have already fallen once beneath them, they seek to recreate their fortunes out of the daydreams of the past.
Dinosaurs of the automotive makers will get new looks; even the real dinosaurs evolved a bit before they were wiped off the earth. Houses will continue to be built like modern individual castles, although the kings that inhabit them now make paupers wages.
Dreams of Horatio Algier success and riches will continue to be dreamt, although the bricks to build the dreams are now dust. No one wants to do the dirty work, and all get dirtier as a result.
The equations to determine the beginning of the next recession is multiply by three the number of times a scam has to presented to a customer before they take a bite, then divide by the number of fools it takes to make your first million, add to it the amount needed for phony advertising and subtract the cost of escape airfare to a nation with covert banks that does not question sources of income. Allow for at least one years time for people to realize how shaky things are financially and that they shouldn't be spending their money and, Shazaam! You can formulate the approximate start of the next recession!
