ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Everyone, including me, gripes about the current state of affairs, and especially the economy. Yet no one with the power to create change even tries to improve things.

Granted, there are a lot of jaws flapping overtime out there, especially within the political arena. Many people from both ends of the political spectrum run their mouths incessantly, every one of them professing to possess the panaceas of prosperity, peace and even a cure for the common cold. But when push comes to shove, nearly every one of these supposed miracle workers falls far short of his intended mark.

The problem is that after they all take their bows, collect fat paychecks and promote themselves for sainthood, virtually none of them knows how to take that first step to turn his grandiose schemes into reality.
