SOMETHING ELSE TO SLOW DOWN AND THINK ABOUT ...
It is the good ol' summertime. Any other time of the year, we'd be too busy, too. But that is the nice thing about the long, slow days that follow the summer solstice in Europe; you can take time to think about things. Especially once you begin to think like a European and begin to appreciate long vacations, as well as long days.
So far, Americans have fought the war of the worlds by aiming their guns at their own heads. That is, they've met the challenge of competition from the East in two suicidal ways: they have worked more hours per household (they now work more than any group on earth), and they have gone into debt (they now owe more money than any other people too).
It's from Bill Bonner at LewRockwell.com.
