Step Aside Prime Minister. The President Will Save The World

| January 26, 2009 | 2 Comments

Gordon Brown believes he may have saved the world last November with his global anti-recession package but it is time for him to step aside, and play Robin to Obama’s Batman to finish the job. [Sorry Gordon, it is back to being number two, which is where you perform best]

Let’s look at Obama’s plan which not only saves America first, and then the world, from economic depression, but from climate change, energy dependency on unreliable sources and air pollution. Not bad for the first week in the job!

On economic revival and energy dependency:

“We will commit ourselves to steady, focused, pragmatic pursuit of an America that is freed from our energy dependence, and empowered by a new energy economy that puts millions of our citizens to work.”

On climate change:

“My administration will not deny facts. We will be guided by them.”

On air pollution:

Obama signed a memorandum requiring the Environmental Protection Agency to reconsider an application (previously blocked by the Bush administration) by California to set more stringent auto emissions and fuel efficiency standards than required by federal law.

It looks like Obama is going to take on the delinquent USA motor industry and try and drag it into the 21st century.

    Hi Ryan,

    I have a couple of posts on the way.

    I have a web site launch in the next couple of days so credit lust has been on the back burner for the last few weeks.

    I have not yet mastered the art of switching successfully between my four work related activities:

    1. a new Business Blogging Service
    2. web site enhancements for existing clients of our web design business
    3. My CFA studies – last week was on DC and DB Pensions
    4. Credit Lust

    I think my goal for Credit Lust for now needs to be to write one excellent post per week rather than a mediocre post every day.

    My next articles on credit lust will be on the weekend about Sir Fred Goodwins £16m pension and another on Obama’s ‘state of the union’ address and budget. A little late but hopefully worth the wait.

    Cheers

    Russell
