Economic or Character Crisis?

Stressed Over MoneyAre we facing MOSTLY an economic crisis or a character crisis right now? I wonder!

Undoubtedly the economy is a mess. But wasn’t it the greed, arrogance and self-absorption on wall street along with the get-rich-quick mindset, greed and selfishness on main street that got us here.

And, as people are responding now, don’t we see fundamentally a response that flows from character or lack of it?

Think about it… fear, blaming others, denial, worry, dishonesty, inappropriate anger (I think there is plenty of good anger needed right now)?

And the biggest issue to me.. how do we start to make adjustments based on good character.. taking responsibility, kicking in the work ethic, caring for others in need, being generous, providing positive solutions, etc.

What do you think?
