Back to the Basics of Love

Recessions.
They happen whenever?
They happen whenever money runs out.
The solution to the Great Recession is the same as any other.
Get some money.
But where do you get the money?
But where do you put the money?
That is the quandary that keeps this recession going.
Where do you get it?
You can print more money. You can cut wages, cut overhead, cut hours, cut job positions, increase efficiency, improve workflow, outsource labor intensive tasks, etc., so you can offer a lower price, beat your competitor, close a deal. You can borrow. You can cut taxes, relax safety requirements – you can just try to make everything cheaper.
But even that money runs out.
Where does that money go?
Is the priority saving profits? That’s simple. Then just find money somewhere and get it into a bottom line ASAP. This stops working.
Eventually that money runs out.
It has. Probably did years ago. Time we got back to the basics of love.
Care. Change priorities as a society.
The basics of love are food.
The basics of love are shelter.
The basics of love are nutrition.
The basics of love are health and sanitation.
The basics of love are learning.
The basics of love are safety.
The basics of love are under our nose.
When you get money, it must go first to the basics of love.
Is anyone hungry?
Is anyone cold?
Is anyone frail?
Is anyone sick and have no doctor or medicine?
Is anyone not able to find clean food, water or shelter?
Are anyone’s children not in a good school?
Are anyone’s children unable to go to a good college?
Is everyone living in a safe place?
First thing we do with any money is address the basics.
Get back to the basics of love and the endless recession will come to an end.
