There was an interesting news release yesterday, and yes, it ties in with Living Simple.
The head of the World Bank warned that the world economy needs 600 million new jobs to be created over the next 15 years, or we are facing some serious economic trouble. In fact, he is convinced that we are going to see a much larger recession within the next year or two.
He went on to state that the problems in Europe are going to affect the rest of the world, and that this insistence on exporting goods as a means of supporting our economies is destined to fail. Even China is seeing huge declines in their exports.
The sooner countries learn to add jobs within their own country, the sooner the economic crisis will be lessened.
Africa and Asia face certain crisis by 2020, but in effect, because we are all global economies, it will be felt by all nations.
Finally, he said the upcoming election should be about which candidate can deliver the most jobs to the country, and that believing in the creation of service jobs is a no-win scenario. Manufacturing and infra-structure jobs are needed in the United States or else the economy will only get worse.
I don’t know about you, but I consider that news to be concerned over. I didn’t really need the World Bank to tell me what I already knew….this recession is not getting better by a long shot, and many of us believe it is going to get much worse.
Living Simple is the only solution for the average family. Debt needs to be lessened, and each family needs to find a way to become more self-sufficient. I don’t know any other way to say that so it is clearer.
