I have one question about the so-call best economy of all time. If the economy was so great and good, why are state governments (Ohio and others), big businesses (airlines, etc.), small businesses (too many to name), individuals and families, one payroll, or paycheck from poverty?
My own theory is that for far too many persons the economy inhabits on short street in lower Manhattan where at one time stood a wall.
