We’re in Uncharted Territory

I like to tell my sons that the global financial indicators show that we’re in uncharted territory… Another economist and financial trader recently noted:

Major banks, bigger than ever, are being forced to soak customers with massive fees in order to lend money to our bankrupt government.

This one opinion doesn’t mean the “sky is falling”… economists are about as good at predicting future events as meteorologists are at predicting the weather. However, the global financial situation (debt, leverage, etc.)  is entering areas never previously experienced…
