A very intelligent and insightful individual recently responded to a brief article which I posted on THE NATIONAL NETWORKER - THE RELATIONSHIP CAPITAL TOOLKIT. I have reposted this comment here, with my response. David makes an excellent observation regarding Human behavior...particularly in Americans.
The global economy has been dependent upon the human nature of the American consumer. When the American consumer goes on a spending diet it not only impacts the Dow Jones, it sends the economies of Asia, Europe, the Middle East and the Americas into cardiac arrest.If you understand dieting and human nature, you know that this spending fast will be broken. The pent up spending urge will break loose, especially as the credit markets are freed up. Look for a spending take-off in late 1Q or early 2Q 2009.You heard it here...David Burnett, CEcD
