Financial Future

Economies move in cycles similar to the life cycles that make up the bulk of the economy. There is the infant, childhood, youth, young adult, adult, retiree, and golden years. Since the bulk of Western civilizations (Europe & America's) are in the retiree/ golden years we are witnessing the death and resurrection of the economy.

The old economy has to die before the next generation (tweens is the next biggest population source) can take the reigns. When this occurs, it will be similar from seeing the economy going from farm to industrial ... life will never be the same again ... and I suspect it will be great.
