NO HYPE TO BELIEVE THIS TIME
If the government -- which exaggerates, spins, and outright lies about the economy -- is reporting this, you can only guess how bad it really is, or will be. Actually, you don't have to guess. Just ask yourself a few basic questions:
Gotten a raise lately? Confident you could change jobs successfully? If you run your own business, how's it been doing? How's your real estate value looking? Investments doing well? Confident about your savings? Handling your debt?Ok. Now move on to these:
Paying more or less for fuel? For food? For clothing? Taken many vacations lately? Working more or less for your salary? More or less in debt that two years ago? If no debt, how's your "nest egg" compared to then?Read the signs. They're clear. And act accordingly, because the economic future isn't pretty.
