I won't get into the political or economic arguments here.
But, the Church has a take on such things - Believe In God, Not In Man or Money!
We live in the richest country, at the most prosperous period of any IN HISTORY OF MANKIND. I understand that losing a job, a home, or your savings is scary. But, if you fear, then it is an opportunity to believe. This is a time to make sure that we are not ruled by things or emotions, but by truth and grace.
Lord be with us all. Give us faith.
