Friends: Due to budget cutbacks, I no longer have the rights to the work of Tom Friedman of the New York Times. But his Sunday column about the global recession and what it's going to take for us to get out of it is worth readers for those who have the time.
Essentially, Friedman is saying there's no single cause or simple fix for what's wrong with the economy: "We are going to have to learn to live with a lot more uncertainty for a lot longer than our generation has ever experienced."
He's right, which is why this is recommended reading. dc
