More New Year punditry on optimism for 2015

And still they come, the New Year press items on optimism. Dude, where’s my flying car?… “It’s time we got back some of the optimism of the 1950s and 1960s and once again become a nation of doers.” End of Year 2014, happiness is on the rise… a GALLUP world survey shows that “70% of people worldwide say they are happy with their life up from 60% last year”. 2015 is a year for cautious optimism… the U.S. economy is booming “so why were there no headlines about a booming economy?” Optimism for 2015… “An American renaissance is in the making.”
