WTF does all this mean?
Well I'll tell you.
If you are a sheep, keep your head in the trough.
Some time soon you're going to take it.
It's going to hurt and it's going to be hard.
However, with some preparation and clear thinking, you could be a shepherd.
Beware of the wolves though.
This is the only positive piece of news I can give.
You are a group of highly trained professionals, you are all quite capable of adapting to the tough challenges that lie ahead.
A few years ago this whole financial mess could have been dealt with in a more closed yet painful way. Sure the "D" word, would have been an inevitability.
(I have previously been censored for using this word.)
Anyway, it's akin to putting off the inevitable visit to the dentist, due to the fear of pain.
Unfortunately, with the passage of time, the situation has got terribly worse.
Countries instead of banks are now bankrupt!
(and your tooth has to come out!)
Reference to history suggests that situations like this, generally result in war.
Honestly I don't know what's going to happen, who does?
Just try and get your mind around it, for your own sakes.
