Quote of the Day

"Economic crises of the kind we are in are costly tragedies, and it takes dedication, sacrifice, and hard work on the part of business elites, labor organizations, political leaders, and ordinary consumers and voters to make it through. Historically, the gumption has been found."—Jack A. Goldstone, in "It's Worse Than You Think: Halftime Between Two Lost Decades," for The Atlantic.

Let us hope we find the gumption once more.
