S. Lindsey's picture

“A year after the collapse of home values triggered the financial crisis and Great Recession, another rapid and irrational rise in the price of assets — whether stocks, home values, oil or something else — would seem unlikely. After all, major bubbles through history have been spaced decades, if not centuries, apart.”

Mike King's picture

In just over three weeks Peachtree City will choose its next mayor who will inherit,arguably, the worst economic scenario of any mayor in our history. A scenario brought about, in part, by city leadership devoid of the fortitude to take unpopular actions so as to avert or minimize the current financial crisis so as not to jeopardize their future political aspirations.
