Summer Dreamworld Experience 2020

Certainly a summer night feels like a dream. In addition it sure feels like we’re in a dreamworld these days. Learn more in Summer-Dreamworld-Experience-2020-Bob Davis Podcast 942.

Fleeting Thoughts

Secondly my thoughts about life today are often fleeting and disjointed.

You Are Not Alone

Most importantly I don’t think I am alone in this feeling.

Freewheeling Talk

Time for a freewheeling talk podcast about this moment in time. Summer, 2020.

Crazy? Maybe Not!

Moreover for me it sometimes feels like a dream. I know I am not crazy but sometimes I feel like I am!

Like A Dream

In the same vein it’s hard for all of us to make sense of things or figure out where things are going. So all of this leads to a sense of worry that isn’t. Feelings of fear that aren’t. Above all wanting to take action but not being quite sure what action to take.

Not Quite Able To Get There

For instance, when we dream we often have a sense of moving toward an objective but not being able to reach it.

Perfect Summer

On the other hand we in the upper Midwest are living through probably one of the best summers in years.

Past Summers During Crises

Finally in view of the economic situation one wonders whether people really understood what was happening in the early stages of the Great Depression back in the early 1930’s.

Losing Control

They experienced it all in color. Like a dream. Events moving forward they couldn’t predict or control.

Good News Too

To sum up friends have told me recently they’re done with the news. Done with social media. Tired of arguing. Consequently there’s a renewed focus on the things closest to them. Family. Friends. Themselves.

Talk It Out

In conclusion in Summer-Dreamworld-Experience-2020-Bob Davis Podcast 942, it’s good to just talk it out.

Calm Before The Storm

In short enjoy the calm before the storm, or the Dream, while it lasts.

Corona-Recession-Becoming-Depression?-Bob Davis Podcast 941

Corona-Recession-Becoming-Depression?

Firstly chances of a happy ending to this pandemic are fading. Learn more in Corona-Recession-Becoming-Depression?-Bob Davis Podcast 941.

Going Against The Optimists

Secondly I know what I have to say goes against the optimists.

Pollyanna

However there’s optimism, then there’s Pollyanna.

Mental Health

Thirdly and most importantly are concerns and questions about our overall mental health.

Giving In To Reopening Pressure

Certainly it’s now clear some states gave in to political pressure to reopen.

Shutting Back Down

As a result we face the specter of shutting back down. One of the reasons I ask whether the Corona Recession Is Becoming A Depression?

Negative Economic Impacts

Above all the big concern is additional negative impacts on the US Economy.

Relief Running Out

Even more unemployment benefits and business relief packages are running out.

The Sheriff Is Here With Your Eviction Notice

Finally as the grace period on evictions ends people are forced to move.

“This Is All Going To End, You’ll See”

This was all supposed to be over by now, right?

Taxpayers Are Broke…So Is The Government

Meanwhile Congress and the White House are negotiating new relief that starts at one trillion dollars. Where is the production and the tax revenue to pay for it?

Enormous Debt To Stop The Panic

More debt, more money printing and more borrowing future growth to stop the bleeding now.

The Boom Was A Dream

In addition the bill for the central bank’s propping up the world economy for at least ten years is coming due. Our economic boom was a dream. Corona is the shock that ended it.

Good Morning Sunshine!

In short it is not a pretty picture.

Optimism Rests On Stock Market and Unemployment Numbers

Similarly you’re going to hear a lot about unemployment numbers, the stock market and so on. But these are not how we measure the economy.

Top Guys Hedging Their Bets

In conclusion top financial people are already hedging their bets. Warning of gathering storm clouds and trouble ahead.

Kanye West, Protests and Karen

The fact that these stories have not seeped into the mainstream is especially relevant. But when you have riots, Kanye West and Karen’s antics at the WalMart to share on social media, who cares about the economy?

Really Hope The Optimists Are Right

To sum up, batten down the hatches America, in about a month we all may wish the eternal optimists were right.

Rules For WalkandTalk Podcast

Firstly, rules for the walk and talk podcast are no preparation and no plan. Just walking and talking. Time to take a break from the surreal world we live in. Join me on the walk in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.

Throw The Plan Out

Secondly, I did have some things I thought I would talk about in this podcast. As soon as I got outside I threw all of that out.

Switch On Summer

Above all, we’re having a warm beginning of June here in the Upper Midwest. We don’t take that lightly.

Back In The Day

On the other hand it’s still hard for me to believe that 75 days ago we were living ‘normal’ lives.

What’s Next?

These days there’s a surreal quality to everything. Consequently we don’t have a sense of where things are headed. How any of this will play out is anyone’s guess.

No Predictions Here

Above all there is my firm commitment not to tell listeners and subscribers what to think or how we should proceed. Everyone is going to have to come to their own conclusions.

Living Through Difficult Times

Certainly I wonder how people felt during times of upheaval in history. Subsequently I am sure few of those people ‘knew’ where ‘things’ were going or how it would turn out.

Sure Hope Something Else Doesn’t Happen!

For example someone remarked to me in a networking session this week, “I sure hope something else doesn’t happen!”.

Likewise I am sure.

Midnight Walk In The Moonlight Cures Just About Anything

Finally my antidote for angst about the future and the crisis we’re all living through is a midnight walk in the moonlight. Even during a curfew it works wonders every time.

Walk…And Talk

In short, join me while I take a walk and talk about some new audio equipment, the surreal times we’re living through and more in Midnight-Curfew-WalkandTalk-Bob Davis Podcast 931.
