Somehow, someway, someone linked this article though I can’t remember who or where. Whoever it was thank you.
The article in mention is this one, “What Hope Is There for This Next Generation in College“, by Burt Folsom.
It’s a very interesting historical perspective on what the United States economic response has typically been when facing/recovering stressful events and times during it’s history.
Of course it’s also important to point out that in each of those circumstances the United States not only recovered but grew it’s presence on the worlds stage.
Perhaps today we should take a lesson from history. It’s usually a prudent choice.
