As we prepare to move into a new decade. I found the following comparison between today and ten years ago quite interesting:
- The Dow was 1000 points higher ten years ago.
- There was a 34% decline in home sales last year versus ten years ago.
- There are three times as many people unemployed today versus ten years ago.
Ah, but the consistent lesson of history is that in the end it always gets better for mankind – even though there might be bumps in the road.
