One week until the most important election in the world.
Don't even try to argue the topic title, you know that your country doesn't really count.
Anyway, we've got a week until we decide the future of the U.S. and, to be frank, I'm getting anxious. More than any other election I can remember, and more than any election in the back half of the 20th century, many people on both sides view themselves on the side of good and the others on the side of evil. Already, each side is amassing small armies of lawyers in preparation for post-election lawsuits. In Ohio, 3,000 Republicans and 1,000 Democrats will be patrolling polling stations to ensure that the voters are legal, though their are suspicions of alterior motives, such as tying up voters to keep many away.
Now, if anything, I'm certain that Americans hold a much greater faith in the system itself than to any candidate. I highly doubt it'll devolve into violence, but I'm not certain. Do you think this will be a mess on par or exceeding the the 2000 debacle, or do you think this will just be a peaceful election?
“It is a strange paradox that today’s central banks are generally staffed by economists, who by and large profess a belief in a theory which says that their jobs are, at the best, unnecessary, and more likely wealth-destroying. Needless to say, this is not a point widely discussed among respectable economists. Nevertheless, it is an issue worth pondering.”
George Cooper, The Origin of Economic Crises
