I am an analyst, a problem-solver, and a conditional prophet. Thus, I disregarded the hysterical blaming of the poor for what was a minor correction in housing prices in 2008, and correctly ascertained the root cause of the meltdown to be the mortgage, itself, the effect of high-paying-job loss at startups, and the failure of risk analysts to consider the risk from a decline in real estate prices. Thus, I proposed the creation of a judicial bank to adjudicate the mortgages into percentage equity agreements, which would have shared the loss from that decline. Thus, when my solution was ignored, I predicted that the foolhardy expansion of the federal debt in the fall of that year would plunge us into #TheGreatDepressionII, in which we have already been wallowing for over a decade.
