The ramifications of the escalating global financial crisis undermine the economic and social stability, and even question the sustainability of the government in many countries. Many who have lost their jobs and/or their life savings are beginning to lose faith in your ability as leaders to provide them with financial security or even viable solutions for the future. In the midst of global uncertainty the bonding exemplified by the various protest movements temporarily consoles the dissatisfied. At the same time, it creates a perilous dynamic which unabated will lead to expanding and intensifying unrest.
The global interdependence and decades of economic excess has rendered conventional fiscal and monetary solutions ineffective. As a result national debt is inflating relentlessly, hampering your ability to continually offer meaningful solutions to the social and economic challenges we face.
