There’s a line of thinking — one that we ascribe to here at PeakProsperity.com — that says today’s problems are far more complex and numerous than those we've dealt with in the past. In fact, some of them are actually predicaments — meaning they have no solutions, only outcomes that we'll need to manage. Moribund economic growth is only as high as it is due to massive debt binging. Ecological and energy issues are accelerating, and will for sure rear their heads at inopportune times not of our choosing.
Said another way: Eventually we're going to have to pay the bill.
