What Worries Me

Generally, I am a person who contemplates serious issues, is concerned about about where society is heading, follows the news, but doesn’t get too involved. My best friend prefers to follow sports only, doesn’t contemplate serious issues, and goes through life without taking anything seriously.

I worry that I worry too much.

Most people don’t understand that economic ups & downs often take a long time to develop — 8, 15, 20 years & more. The long Reagan policy induced bull market in stocks was an early sign of today’s prosperous economy. Seeds of today’s prosperity were planted in 1981.

I am worried that I may not have answered this survey correctly.
I know I shouldn’t be since there’s no right or wrong way to respond.
