As the global economy shrinks...

This year will mark to be a momentous year for the global economy. Officially, we are now on global recession. Next year, we will all feel the heat for this fall-out. I receive an important email from a friend involved in online marketing which outlines some basic thought as far as the whole economy is concerned. Here it goes: "We need to realize that the economy is not some abstract entity separate from us. The economy is us. YOU and I are the economy. Our thoughts, behaviors, actions and mood collectively create the economy. Government can try to manipulate our actions through tax plans, regulations, incentives, etc. but in a nutshell WE are the economy. Our collective mood, productivity, innovation, positive energy and execution determines whether the economy is thriving or in a recession. Paying our mortgage helps the economy. Working hard helps the economy. Starting a business helps the economy. Making a product the world needs helps the economy. Replacing our psychology of fear with a psychology of trust helps the economy. And it helps you! And it helps everyone!" Hope we could learn something on this very basic tenet of wisdom.

Hi, You are right. We are the economy but if we lost our job during recession period, then we would be in deep personal financial problem. So, we cannot help much for the economy. I think that it will take time for the economy to back to stable.
