Past performance doesn't guarantee future results - but my money is on the fact that it's a good idea to invest while the financial industry is panicked with the thought of a business-friendly Democrat leading the economic destiny of the country rather than a moderate Republican. And this is just the beginning. Over the next few months, the story leading the financial news is going to be the so-called “fiscal cliff.” Just like the debt ceiling arguments that gripped the nation last year, creating some kind of fake drama everyone knew would be resolved in the end, but the uncertainty held the economy back, I expect these issues to be resolved, though probably at the last minute.We, as an American audience, have proven we love drama, even when fake. Today, government is not much more than a reality television show - and the word “reality” is used ironically. Just like the Real Housewives are staged, so is much of the modern political process, to the benefit of the massive media conglomerates that sell advertising time on their networks. That isn't to say the problems we're facing aren't real, but they aren't worthy of inducing fear-based decision-making.
