I believe the middle class is being crushed and the economy will worsen again. We are on the edge of the New Depression. If our leaders screw up, it will be here sooner than later. If they keep the world believing in their competence, it may be delayed a few years.
Your choice will be to get richer or become poorer during the next depression. I plan on becoming richer, which is why I keep doing the same thing. I keep studying, continue to take classes, choose my advisors wisely, and listen carefully to what our leaders are saying. Then, I make up my own mind and do my own thing. You should too.
