Hmmm, 7 years of plenty followed by 7 years of famine.
Joseph got it right and saved up.
America apparently didn’t. We consumed our riches instead of planning for the future. Where could we have been if we:
- produced energy efficient automobiles (now we are bailing out the car companies)
- provided real oversight of Wall Street (now we are tossing bad money after good to bail them out)
- regulating the mortgage industry (now we are watching the house of cards come tumbling down)
- curbed greenhouse gases (now we are watching the glaciers melt and…)
Unlike Pharaoh and Joseph, we let greed about “I want to enjoy it now” overwhelm the urge/need to plan for the future.
