A guy told me the other day that he is “functionally bankrupt.” He has around $57 billion in outstanding debt (it takes awhile to add it all up), but he’s planning to borrow $5 billion more in the next year or so. Would you like to lend him some of that money? I wouldn’t. The guy is New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.Solutions To Today’s Economy
In view of the effort President Obama has recently made by signing various bills into act that will alleviate some of the problems associated with today’s economy by creating more jobs, demand accountability and transparency of government and financial institutions, enable the flow of credit so small businesses can rebuild, I believe there is something all of us can do to help on a more personal level.
