And I'll bet you are just as happy with your life as the "high rollers" are during good times. When the economy is bad a smart guy just quits spending.
What I can't get over is how people can say we are at the bottom of the downturn?
I don't think we are going to be saying that by the spring. This thing internationally
is not looking good at all. The stock market is doing all right, but that is because of
speculation. Speculation is what has got us into this kind of trouble. I should say
unbridled speculation. From what I have been seeing, we are following the path of
the thirties. 1929 saw a downturn, and a surge in the first couple of years in the 30's
In 1933 all hell broke loose and it was a worse downturn than anyone expected. I
hope we are not heading there but I am very concerned we are not taking things as
seriously as we should.
As for how are we doing? I am alright, I have a farm and I have an agri services
company, that does custom pruning and so on.
Ive been promoted since ive been back to work and if the recession hits again i know which mining stock to buy when it gets cheap again
I worked a total of just over a month this year,the wells they had planned to drill got put on hold,pipelines that were ready to put in the ground were cut up and shipped to another location,a lot of the construction projects planned with govt. money havent even started yet,and the gold exploration camps in the Arctic are also waiting before they throw any money into this summers drill programs.
I own my own bussiness so even though I have to pay EI it's not available to me.
I know lots of owners of huge construction outfits throught Alberta and BC,not much going on but Sask does have work and I just may go there.
