Frequent readers of the Financial Woman know I like to seek out the positive. Today’s posting at seeking alpha by Mark Krieger is a refreshing bit of optimism amidst another down week for the stock market. He is calling our current situation a recession but does make some excellent points that the current situation is not remotely as bad as the Great Depression due to the existing global economy technology and past learning experiences. Last week I wrote about a similar piece but with more numerical data. While the short selling suggestion in the article is probably not something that would interest most financial women the rest of the article has some very good points in simple terms.
