Slow News Cycle

15 Reasons Why Americans Think We’re Still in a Recession

Some of this sounds like cry me a river. We have to come to terms that in America’s post-2008 hyper-meritocracy a lot of people will be left behind, and there’s nothing we can or should do about it . Stocks will keep going up with no end in sight even as millions of people fall between the cracks.

Until something happens, there will likely be less blogging. In the past two week or so coinciding with the ignominious failings of the administration during America’s Ebola outbreak , the news cycle has pretty much dried up, and we predict the news cycle will remain quiescent until a month or so into the new year. In 2013 we had the IQ wars, the fiscal cliff and the debt ceiling, the former and later which I correctly predicted would be a good buying opportunity for stocks. What we need is for a major intellectual or other public figure outside of sports to make some sort of bold, controversial statement or proclamation that we, as bloggers, can sink our teeth into such as during the IQ wars.
