If my country were my client, I’d tell her its time to fix her family finances, before it’s too late.
I’d tell her it’s long past time to put together a serious budget.
I’d tell her to stop spending foolishly, as if she was able to print an unlimited supply of money down in the basement.
I’d tell her to stop borrowing, cut up her credit cards and pay back who she owes.
I’d tell her that throwing serious money at childish charades and flights of fancy is not “investing,” it’s dangerous.
I’d tell her it was time to play the long game with financial determination so fierce it would ensure the future of her grandchildren’s grandchildren.
And finally, I would advise her to stop hiring dishonest and unskilled employees who will deliberately destroy her standing in the world economy.
She has problems beyond money, but she’s strong, and brave, and good, so I give her my best advice with due respect, loyalty and love for her and her whole family, because they deserve better.
I can dream, can’t I?
