Chaos, Order, Power and Leadership

HI Everyone,

Wow, putting on my Economist and Leadership Power expert hats, I am watching the two steps forward one step back in the Power Shift from dictatorship to democracy ( my latest book, From Old Power to New Power--Which Leaders Will $urvive?)...tough going right now...vicious circle...poor economic growth opens the door for dictatorship which then weakens economic growth!  Seeing it here and home and abroad...very sad...tough lessons to be learned in many countries.

But, hey, Egypt, how could you possibly think Mursi would be democratic?  His pronouncement of his absolute power is in exact alignment with the beliefs of his party.   This was obvious before your 2012 election.  Hope this works out well for you there...would be good to have you as an ally again.

Here in the U.S., we see fruits not growing to ripeness:
-Our GDP was lowered by a huge 33 % from 2.4 to 1.8% for 2012, now the same as Russia.
-A poll reported 44% of Americans are worse off economically than a year ago.
-The markets dropped like a rock at the hint of "tapering" by the Fed.
-Top line revenue for corporate earnings has been nothing to write home about.
-Job formation 188,000 this week is only half of what we need to get back on track.
-Small business formation and job creation, usually creating 2/3 of our jobs, is at the lowest level in 30 yrs.
-I know many entrepreneurs with great products, technology and services who cannot get startup funding even in cities which are rebounding...not a good fact, a very bad sign. 

On this 4th of July, my prayer for our great if beleaguered nation, is that our economy strengthens,
more jobs are created, our Constitution and spiritual foundation are honored again and the innovative
spirit of America flourishes in business once again!!

May you have a safe and happy Independence Day!
Peace and Prosperity,
Dr. Linne
