Uncertain Times

This Christmas season is colored by economic uncertainty. Many are unemployed and many who are employed have had their wages cut back. Some are working at a job that pays them a lot less than they were used to, but they are happy to have a job at all.

The folks in Washington DC and in our state capitols want us to cut back, but they will not cut back, so far. They ask us to do what they will not do. Some leaders! A real leader would lead by example.

The average American has much less discretionary income than last year, and last year was no winner. Money is tight. Many Americans are in hunker-down, bunker-mentality. Some believe that this is the new normal, and that the old normal will never return.

It seems that every generation has feared that their children, the next generation, may not live better than them. Until now, the next generation has had it better than the proceeding one. Today, all of that seems to be changed. Many believe that the next generation might very well live at a lower standard of living than we have today.

What’s The Game Plan?

Enough doom and gloom. What is a good way to cope with this? What’s a good strategy to deal with uncertain times at Christmas?

It seems that no matter how bad the times are, people gather their resources for Christmas gifts, especially for their kids and for their wives and husbands. Christmas may not be as big as before, but Christmas gift boxes, like Christmas stockings on the fireplace, will not be empty or bare.
