Where Has Patience Gone?

Instant gratification is probably the biggest contributing factor to our current economic woes. People, in general, need to have what they want right away. Big house, luxury car, big income, etc, etc, etc. without necessarily putting in the time to earn them. Well, what got us into the mess is certainly not going to get us out of it and that goes for expectations as well. Now people are afraid because our new President hasn't gotten us out of the mess quickly enough, like he should have waved a magic wand to make it all disappear. No one knows for sure (probably including the President) if the decisions being made are going to work, only TIME will tell. He is giving it his best shot on a highly complex and serious problem. Exercising a little patience and giving the decisions a chance to bear some fruit might be in order.

I think conservatives who didn't vote for him are already biased, so they're going to see everything he does with black colored glasses... haha. OK, anyway, I doubt most voters who didn't vote for him will be willing to have patience. But you're right, Americans (or is it people in general??) are not patient. It's pretty irrational, if you ask me.

thanks HPG & Geo! It really irks me about the lack of patience for just about anything these days.

I'm a conservative so I didn't have faith in him to begin with because I didn't see his ideology the same as people who did believe in him. I know it sucks... but that's how I feel.

Good blog on patience though. Patience is a VIRTUE fah sho!

uh and I don't think Keynesian Economics (throwing money at a problem to fix the problem) will work. That's what we've been doing for too long and we will get the same results.

M2 - Your opinion doesn't suck...don't look at it that way. It's always good to have checks and balances. I would tend to agree that throwing money at something that is failing is normally a waste of money (ie. bailouts - I'm not really for that, especially if it continues), but since I'm not an economics major and we are talking about more than just one company or one industry, but an entire economy, it's probably a different ball of wax. And I, along with a lot of people, are hoping that the experts who are in charge right now are correct in their assessments, and we're just crossing our fingers! :)

Yorks, that's me too, just hoping the experts know what they're doing. Because I sure don't know enough to be running such a big ship. I have the feeling that nobody knows, which is a tiny bit scary... but people at least marginally trained in it can probably make better 'guesses' than I could.
