The last global financial crisis in 2008-2010 has made a huge negative impact in the US economy. It affected citizens all over the country, from different walks of life, in so many different ways, from numerous house foreclosures to growing unemployment rates.
This year, however, has started with a bang as our economy is now gaining ground. With economists saying that the future looks bright for our country, President Barack Obama is calling out for unity in congress as the Washington Times online reports:
Seizing on a positive jobs report, President Obama said Thursday that America is “making progress” on the economy and urged congressional Republicans to cooperate on his agenda.
“We have not seen more consistent job growth since the ‘90s,” Mr. Obama said during a hastily arranged visit to a tech start-up incubator in Washington. “But we can make even more progress if Congress is willing to work with my administration and to set politics aside, at least occasionally.”
The president added the event to his schedule after the Labor Department reported Thursday that the jobless rate had dropped from 6.3 percent to 6.1 percent and that the economy had added more than 200,000 jobs for the fifth consecutive month. The positive news came after the government reported that the economy had contracted by a startling 2.9 percent in the first quarter of the year.
Now that our economy is finally making headway, we citizens should start thinking about our future and start handling our hard-earned money wisely; so that we can be financially secure should the economy comes crashing down as what happened a few years ago.
