basic prescription for preventing deflation is straightforward, at least in principle:
Use monetary and fiscal policy as needed to support aggregate spending, in a manner
as nearly consistent as possible with full utilization of economic resources and
low and stable inflation. In other words, the best way to get out of trouble is
not to get into it in the first place.
Bernanke - Problems
Theres no denying that a collapse in stock prices today would pose
serious macroeconomic challenges for the United States. Consumer spending would
slow, and the U.S. economy would become less of a magnet for foreign investors.
Economic growth, which in any case has recently been at unsustainable levels,
would decline somewhat. History proves, however, that a smart central bank can
protect the economy and the financial sector from the nastier side effects of
a stock market collapse.
Bernanke - Problems
The economic repercussions of a stock market crash depend
less on the severity of the crash itself than on the response of economic policymakers,
particularly central bankers.
Bernanke - Problems
A collapse in U.S. stock prices certainly would cause a lot
of white knuckles on Wall Street. But what effect would it have on the broader
U.S. economy? If Wall Street crashes, does Main Street follow? Not necessarily.
Bernanke - Problems
We look a little bit disorderly, indecisive,
leaderless. Thats a real problem,
and thats a problem that concerns
me particularly on foreign affairs. The
presidency, not just President
Obama, but the presidency in recent
years has lost some of the terrain that
they used to dominate in the making of foreign
policy. I think President Obama has to make
a serious effort to regain it because he
lost some of it himself.
Brzezinski - America
Policy - President
The problem is the average person isnt
tuned in to lifelong learning, or going
to seminars and so forth. If the information
is not on television, and its not
in the movies they watch, and its
not in the few books that they buy, they
dont get it.
Canfield - Learning
I teach something called The Law of Probabilities,
which says the more things you try, the
more likely one of them will work. The more
books you read, the more likely one of them
will have an answer to a question that could
solve the major problems of your life..
make you wealthier, solve a health problem,
whatever it might be.
Canfield - Questions
There's a reason education sucks, and it's
the same reason it will never ever ever
be fixed. It's never going to get any better.
Don't look for it. Be happy with what you've
got.. because the owners of this country
dont want that. I'm talking about
the real owners now.. the real owners. The
big wealthy business interests that control
things and make all the important decisions.
Forget the politicians. The politicians
are put there to give you the idea that
you have freedom of choice. You dont.
You have no choice. You have owners.
Carlin - Education
Business - Society
There is a certain degree of satisfaction
in having the courage to admit one's errors.
It not only clears up the air of guilt and
defensiveness, but often helps solve the
problem created by the error.
Carnegie - Courage
Dealing with people is probably the biggest
problem you face, especially if you are
in business. Yes, and that is also true
if you are a housewife, architect or engineer.
Carnegie - People
One of the problems we have as a government
is our inability to keep secrets. And it
costs us, in terms of our relationship with
other governments, in terms of the willingness
of other intelligence services to work with
us, in terms of revealing sources and methods.
And all of those elements enter into some
of these leaks.
Cheney - Politicians
Terrorism isn't insanity. It grows out of
social conditions that are well known: poverty,
social oppression, dictatorship, and a void
of meaning in the lives of ordinary people.
Chopra - Life
It has often and confidently been asserted,
that man's origin can never be known: Ignorance
more frequently begets confidence than does
knowledge: it is those who know little,
not those who know much, who so positively
assert that this or that problem will never
be solved by science.
Darwin - Knowledge
We may need to solve problems not by removing
the cause but by designing the way forward
even if the cause remains in place.
de Bono - Problems
Sometimes the situation is only a problem
because it is looked at in a certain way.
Looked at in another way, the right course
of action may be so obvious that the problem
no longer exists.
de Bono - Problems
We can drift along as though there were
still a cold war, wasting hundreds of billions
of dollars on weapons that will never be
used, ignoring the problems of people in
this country and around the world, being
one of the worst environmental violators
on earth, standing against any sort of viable
programs to protect the world's forests
or to cut down on acid rain or the global
warming or ozone depletion. We can ignore
human rights violations in other countries,
or we can take these things on as true leaders
ought to and accept the inspiring challenge
of America for the future.
Carter - Environmental
I'd say it's been my biggest problem all my life.. it's money. It takes a
lot of money to make these dreams come true.
Disney - Challenges
The Net as a whole is not that reliable,
so our blips in service don't cause major
problems. However, we are certainly working
on improving our own reliability as well
as those sites that we depend on.
Filo - Challenges
Judging by opinion polls, Israel has bigger
problems than me. It is among the most hated
countries on the planet. It should stop
acting like a lunatic state. Once it carries
on like a normal country, I will be happily
redirect my energies elsewhere.
Finkelstein - Israel
It is a simple fact of life on earth that
there is going to be no successful mitigation
of the climate change problem without a
truly global effort. All developing companies
or all major developing countries have to
be part of that and accept substantial constraints
on greenhouse gas emissions.
Garnaut - Facts
Change - Problems
The climate change problem is at its heart
an ethical problem. Its a problem
of income distribution and its a problem
of income distribution with dimensions that
we dont usually think about very much.
Garnaut - Climate
Change - Problems
Security is, I would say, our top priority
because for all the exciting things you
will be able to do with computers.. organizing
your lives, staying in touch with people,
being creative.. if we don't solve these
security problems, then people will hold
back. Businesses will be afraid to put their
critical information on it because it will
Gates - Internet
We look in our own backyard and say, 'How
do we help at-risk families, at risk youth?
How do we think through some of the problems
affecting the Pacific Northwest and make
some change there?'
Gates - Help
The entrepreneur in us sees opportunities
everywhere we look, but many people see
only problems everywhere they look. The
entrepreneur in us is more concerned with
discriminating between opportunities than
he or she is with failing to see the opportunities.
Gerber - Opportunity
We are constantly being told that weve
never been wealthier. And many of us are.
On average we all are. But thats just
the problem.. no one is average.
Gillard - Wealth
When you confront a problem you begin to
Giuliani - Solutions
There are many who still do not believe
that global warming is a problem at all.
And it's no wonder: because they are the
targets of a massive and well-organized
campaign of disinformation lavishly funded
by polluters who are determined to prevent
any action to reduce the greenhouse gas
emissions that cause global warming out
of a fear that their profits might be affected
if they had to stop dumping so much pollution
into the atmosphere.
Gore - Environmental
Not all problems have a technological answer, but when they do, that is the
more lasting solution.
Grove - Technology
As a tither you automatically become solution-oriented rather than problem-oriented.
Victor Hansen - Philanthropy
To my mind, you cannot speak about the need for leadership within our communities
without being prepared to take on responsibility yourself. Its not enough
to point the finger at those who have let us down and to expect others to come
forward and fix our problems. Nor can anyone afford to call themselves a leader
unless they truly have the interests of our community at heart. Too many people
like to think they are leaders and too many are identified by the media as leaders
who are not really leaders at all.
Huggins - Leadership
I don't want to be just a voice on the phone. I have to get to know these guys
face-to-face and develop a sincere relationship. That way, if we run into problems
in a deal, it doesn't get adversarial. We trust each other and have the confidence
we can work things out.
Huizenga - Problems
Wallowing in the past may be good literature. As wisdom, it's hopeless.
Help - Problems
We have bloated bureaucracies in Corporate America. The root of the problem
is the absence of real corporate democracy.
Icahn - Politics
In short, we must face problems which do
not lend themselves to easy or quick or
permanent solutions. And we must face the
fact that the United States is neither omnipotent
nor omniscient, that we are only six percent
of the world's population, that we cannot
impose our will upon the other ninety-four
percent of mankind, that we cannot right
every wrong or reverse each adversity, and
that therefore there cannot be an American
solution to every world problem.
F. Kennedy - Problems
Communism forgets that life is individual.
Capitalism forgets that life is social,
and the kingdom of brotherhood is found
neither in the thesis of communism nor the
antithesis of capitalism but in a higher
synthesis. It is found in a higher synthesis
that combines the truths of both. Now, when
I say question the whole society, it means
ultimately coming to see that the problem
of racism, the problem of exploitation,
and the problem of war are all tied together.
These are the triple evils that are interrelated.
Luther King Jr - Truth
I know that love is ultimately the only
answer to mankind's problems. And I'm going
to talk about it everywhere I go. I know
it isn't popular to talk about it in some
circles today. I'm not talking about emotional
bosh when I talk about love, I'm talking
about a strong, demanding love.
Luther King Jr - Social
Each success only buys an admission ticket
to a more difficult problem.
Kissinger - Success
When you travel as secretary, one problem
you have is that the press comes with you
and wants an immediate result because it
justifies their trip. And sometimes the
best result is that you don't try to get
a result but try to get an understanding
for the next time you go to them.
Kissinger - Geopolitics
I have a problem with too much money. I
can't reinvest it fast enough, and because
I reinvest it, more money comes in. Yes,
the rich do get richer.
Kiyosaki - Money
I really wanted to retire and rest and spend
more time with my children, my grandchildren
and of course with my wife. But the problems
are such that for anybody with a conscience
who can use whatever influence he may have
to try to bring about peace, it's difficult
to say no.
Mandela - Peace
If the only tool you have is a hammer, you
tend to see every problem as a nail.
Maslow - Problems
I think that when you look at the great politicians, the two greatest in my view
were George Washington and Abraham
Lincoln, they certainly had character traits. You also know Abraham
Lincoln overcame severe depression problems that he had when he was younger,
which gave him the strength and the character later on.
McCain - Strength
There's no substitute for rolling up your
sleeves and working with the people who
can make a difference. They get the benefit
of your participation and you gain a direct
understanding of the real problems and potential
solutions, which makes you a more informed
Milken - Philanthropy
Everyone experiences tough times, it is
a measure of your determination and dedication
how you deal with them and how you can come
Mittal - Challenges
Today the strategies of many companies in
the real estate industry are premised on
low interest rates, an assumption that has
resulted in the rapid expansion of the real
estate securitization business. This trend
could be regarded as a risk factor, as it
exposes the real estate sector to at least
three potential problems: first, interest
rate hikes; second, revisions to securitization
business accounting standards; and third,
overheating in the real estate market.
Mori - Growth
Estate - Business
Becoming carbon neutral is only the beginning.
The climate problem will not be solved by
one company reducing its emissions to zero,
and it won't be solved by one government
acting alone. The climate problem will not
be solved without mass participation by
the general public in countries around the

I had one simple idea about telling friends about arts and technology events.
People in the community suggested everything else to us, and that's our theme.
We're really run by the people who use the site. We just run the infrastructure,
and help out with problems.
Newmark - Technology
People don't expect government to solve
all their problems. But they sense, deep
in their bones, that with just a slight
change in priorities, we can make sure that
every child in America has a decent shot
at life, and that the doors of opportunity
remain open to all. They know we can do
Obama - America
I've got a passion for solving a problem
that I think I can solve in a new way. And
that maybe it helps that nobody has done
it before as well.
Omidyar - Passions
Try handling problems in the office as dispassionately
as you can and I guarantee you will have
a better time of it; not least because when
you bring emotion into the conversation,
you furnish your colleagues with an easy
out for dismissing you. If you
are able to strip out the emotion, however,
people have to deal with you based on the
Orman - Jobs
Countries without much history, or without
much sad history, are more naive. But in
their naivety they are realists, they can
see their problems easily.
Pamuk - Problems
I now know that I learn by solving problems
as they arise. Rarely do we learn significant
lessons, or significantly improve, any other
Parsons - Learning
When I hear bad news I look at it as another
leadership test that will determine how
successful Go Daddy will become. So I no
longer dread it. Instead, I enjoy the game
of finding the very best way to deal with
it, and take great satisfaction in having
a hand in resolving the issues that come
Parsons - Problems
We are imperfect beings in a very imperfect
world, and the one thing we can count on
is that things will go wrong, and that each
and every one of us will have problems.
Parsons - Problems
Lets be honest. Theres not a
business anywhere that is without problems.
Business is complicated and imperfect. Every
business everywhere is staffed with imperfect
human beings and exists by providing a product
or service to other imperfect human beings.
Parsons - Problems
Through persistence, self-knowledge, prayer,
commitment, optimism, a resolute trust in
God and the building of your own personal
moral strength, you can enjoy the blessings
of a deeper faith and face the difficulties
of life with courage and confidence.
Vincent Peale - Life
Control - Strength
Every problem has in it the seeds of its
own solution. If you dont have any
problems, you dont get any seeds.
Vincent Peale - Problems
Weve got all these politicians talking
about better health care and what all, but
believe me, were not going to have
the money to take care of sick people..
or anyone else as far as Im concerned..
if we dont fix our energy problem
right now. Ive got an idea what to
do. It might not be a perfect idea, but
hell, none of my best ideas have been perfect.
Boone Pickens - Politicians
We still have a great amount of work to
do in social development, including resolving
one of the biggest challenges we face in
this area, namely, reducing the gap between
high-income earners and people, citizens
of our country, who are still living on
very modest means indeed. But we cannot,
of course, adopt the solution used 80 years
ago and simply confiscate the riches of
some to redistribute among others. We will
use completely different means to resolve
this problem, namely, we will ensure good
Putin - Society
We've poured our poisons into the world
as though it were a bottomless pit.. and
we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to
imagine how the world could survive another
century of this abuse, but nobody's really
doing anything about it. It's a problem
our children will have to solve, or their
Quinn - Nature
Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done..
almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing.
The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world.
And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to
stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought.
Quinn - Nature
I came to realize that my money problems, worries, and shortages largely
began and ended with the person in my mirror. I realized also that if I could
learn to manage the character I shaved with every morning, I would win with money.
Ramsey - Learning
After losing everything, I went on a quest to find out how money really works,
how I could get control of it, and how I could have confidence in handling it.
Ramsey - Poverty
It was very difficult. We don't advertise this much, but those years that
we went through were hell. I don't want to overstate the situation, but everything
was mortgaged to the hilt, cash was a real problem, and it did limit what we were
able to do.
Rinehart - Challenges
Howard's problem is for so long he's been a climate change sceptic, how can
he, therefore, put himself to the country as part of a climate change solution
for the future.
Rudd - Australia
Change - Solutions
I have learned from experience that the sword alone cannot decide this bitter
dispute in this land.
Sharon - War
I believe through learning and application of what you learn, you can solve
any problem, overcome any obstacle and achieve any goal that you can set for yourself.
Tracy - Achievement
One of the key problems today is that politics
is such a disgrace, good people don't go
Trump - Politicians
You have to seek the simplest implementation
of a problem solution in order to know when
you've reached your limit in that regard.
Then it's easy to make tradeoffs, to back
off a little, for performance reasons. You
can simplify and simplify and simplify yet
still find other incredible ways to simplify
Wozniak - Computers
I have developer's disease. I love to sit
at a drafting table and draw plans for hotels,
wrestling with problems of traffic and the
flow of people. That's what turns me on.
Wynn - Passion
Estate - Problems
The single biggest issue that I'm very sensitive
to is inflation. I'm very concerned that
this extended period where the interest
rates were quite low and stimulated a lot
of activity could breed inflation and create
a problem for us.
Zell - Economy
When we can identify a problem and face
the problem with confidence and enthusiasm,
the solution is on the way.

Lack of direction, not lack of time, is
