A Simple Formula to Tame The Multi-Headed Monster

As of Monday's close, I have four general observations, which are:
  1. Monday's intraday action on the U.S. Major Indices tells me that money may still be flowing into the markets, in general, but it is doing so at a thinning rate and with less conviction.
  2. The fact that there are major economic, financial, and political problems in Europe tells me that no "compromise" has ever been reached on achieving the ultimate goal...that of a sustainable and stable, growing, healthy, harmonized "European" economy.
  3. Other countries outside of the EU want to see these problems resolved.
  4. Other countries are grappling with their own financial, economic and fiscal agendas, and this also requires "internal and external compromise."
The method of achieving "compromise" is a "drill-down" process...
  • It starts with a desire to achieve a common result...the win-win scenario.
  • The actual search for "compromise" leads to the discovery and identification of layers which contain impediments to the actualization of "compromise."
  • Common and palatable solutions are formed to resolve each of these impediments within each layer.
  • A communal application/implementation of these solutions will lead to "compromise," which will, in turn, achieve the common desire/result.
Such a process can be done at any time as long as there is a concerted will to do so, as well as sufficient time in which to do it. Failure to do it within that time will result in a win by the monster...and I guarantee it, no one will win.

I don't know about you, but I don't want to see the monster win. Surely we're creative enough not to let that happen!

"COMPROMISE" ~ The point at which a disagreement ends
and harmony (and the pursuit of common goals) begins.
