For those of us who wake up every morning with the radio news, today started with really good news! The Government finally decided to go back to work (on a Thursday!) which certainly is not only a relief to most Americans but to the global economy world as well. The announcement prompted the Asian stock markets to rise, although the European markets fell a little this morning. There is a lot of work to do now as the US has to rebuild the confidence in its economy, at home and abroad.
Let’s hope that the economy will recover from the impact of this long shutdown, and let’s hope further that we are not in for the same sad story in February again.
