To me, our traditional labor market, at least in the developed countries is falling apart before our eyes. Corporations would rather use extra money to upgrade tech and cut fat, and American labor is pretty fat. This most likely means that the Developed World Economies are likely to putter along, if not far worse if fear starts snowballing again. Do you believe there is a problem and how would you fix it? I believe the solution actually lies in bringing more countries into the consumer age and thereby creating a much larger base to build our houses of cards. If it wasn't for the prospect of the BRIC countries bringing more demand to the world in the next five years, the stock market would be bouncing along its lows and we would be staring at another depression, imo. So, logically, the way to give hope to the markets and eventually wealth to more people is to increase the number of developing countries that Wall St. gets hope from. Any takers?
