How we invest for the future is getting harder to determine when we can't control the playing field.

This sounds like the TV show “fear factor”. The problem is the situation is real. Given our elected politicians can’t agree on a solution, we are going to have to live with the results. I don’t know if there is a real solution other than greatly raising personal taxes and slashing spending.

The “can” has become an IED. Does anybody want to kick it? Do we have our collective heads in the sand?

If you were “King for a day” what fixes would you dictate?
