An article in the October issue of Money magazine (“Why Down May Be the New Up”, p17) suggests that when things are looking really bad, its time to start looking for a rebound.

Ask anyone about the economy today, it’s doubtful you’ll get a positive response.

I had visions (not too detailed mind you…) of a toilet, being flushed. The toilet gets filled with filth, and gets flushed; everything goes down and there’s nothing left for about a minute until the clean water rises back up to its normal level.

In a similar way, according to my highly technical theory, our economy, currently in the toilet and being flushed, will rise again with new optimism and opportunity.

So, all you need to do is…. plug your nose and hold your breath, and know that better days lie ahead.
