The 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.
Ben Bernanke - Problems
- Economy - Finance

There’s 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.
Ben Bernanke - Problems - Economy - Finance - Stock Market

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.
Ben Bernanke - Problems - Economy - Stock Market

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.
Ben Bernanke - Problems - Economy - Stock Market


We look a little bit disorderly, indecisive, leaderless. That’s a real problem, and that’s 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.
Zbigniew Brzezinski - America - Lack - Politics - Problems - Geopolitics - Foreign Policy - President - Influence

The problem is the average person isn’t tuned in to lifelong learning, or going to seminars and so forth. If the information is not on television, and it’s not in the movies they watch, and it’s not in the few books that they buy, they don’t get it.
Jack Canfield - Learning - Improvement - Problems - Media - Books

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.
Jack Canfield - Questions - Wealth - Goals - Problems - Books - Teaching - Solutions

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 don’t 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 don’t. You have no choice. You have owners.
George Carlin - Education - Problems - Choice - Big Business - Society - Control - Politicians - Freedom

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.
Dale Carnegie - Courage - Solutions - Problems - Mistakes

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.
Dale Carnegie - People - Business - Customers - Problems

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.
Dick Cheney - Politicians - Government - Work - Intelligent - Problems - Partnership

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.
Deepak Chopra - Life
- Poverty - People - Problems

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.
Charles Darwin - Knowledge - Confidence - Ignorance
- Science - Problems - Solutions

We may need to solve problems not by removing the cause but by designing the way forward even if the cause remains in place.
Edward de Bono - Problems - Solutions

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.
Edward de Bono - Problems - Solutions - Ideas - Change

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.
Jimmy 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.
Walt 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.
David Filo - Challenges - Internet - Problems

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.
Norman Finkelstein - Israel - Problems -
Hate - Crazy - Insane

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.
Ross Garnaut - Facts
- Climate Change - Problems - World - Life - Greenhouse - Emissions - Companies - Mitigation - Effort

The climate change problem is at its heart an ethical problem. It’s a problem of income distribution and it’s a problem of income distribution with dimensions that we don’t usually think about very much.
Ross Garnaut - Climate Change - Problems - Ethical - Wage


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 be exposed.
Bill Gates - Internet - Technology - Problems -

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?'
Melinda Gates - Help - Philanthropy - Problems

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.
Michael Gerber - Opportunity - Entrepreneurs - Problems

We are constantly being told that we’ve never been wealthier. And many of us are. On average we all are. But that’s just the problem.. no one is average.
Julia Gillard - Wealth - Problems - Politics

When you confront a problem you begin to solve it.
Rudy Giuliani - Solutions - Challenges - Problems

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.
Al Gore - Environmental
- Profits - Problems - Fear - Determination

Not all problems have a technological answer, but when they do, that is the more lasting solution.
Andrew Grove - Technology - Problems - Solutions

As a tither you automatically become solution-oriented rather than problem-oriented.
Mark Victor Hansen - Philanthropy - Solutions - Problems


To my mind, you cannot speak about the need for leadership within our communities without being prepared to take on responsibility yourself. It’s 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.
Jackie Huggins - Leadership - Responsibility - Problems - Media

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.
Wayne Huizenga - Problems - Challenges - Confidence - Partnership

Wallowing in the past may be good literature. As wisdom, it's hopeless.
Aldous Huxley - Motivational - Self Help - Problems

We have bloated bureaucracies in Corporate America. The root of the problem is the absence of real corporate democracy.
Carl Icahn - Politics - Management
- Companies - Problems

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.
John F. Kennedy - Problems - Solutions - USA - Global - Population - Hegemony - Adversity

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.
Martin Luther King Jr - Truth - Life - Racism - War - Evil - Communism - Capitalism - Questions - Social - Problems

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.
Martin Luther King Jr - Social - Love - Emotional - Problems - Strong

Each success only buys an admission ticket to a more difficult problem.
Henry Kissinger - Success - Difficult - Problem

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.
Henry Kissinger - Geopolitics - Problem - Politicians - Press - News - Meeting - Understanding

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.
Robert Kiyosaki - Money - Investing - Rich -

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.
Nelson Mandela - Peace - Compassion - Retirement

If the only tool you have is a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.
Abraham Maslow -
Problems - Solutions

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.
John 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 giver.
Michael Milken - Philanthropy -
Giving - Work - Problems - Understanding

Everyone experiences tough times, it is a measure of your determination and dedication how you deal with them and how you can come through them.
Lakshmi Mittal - Challenges - Commitment - Problems

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.
Akira Mori - Growth - Real Estate - Business - Strategies - Accounting - Debt - Problems

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 globe.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Responsibility - Carbon - Problems - Companies - Solutions - World


Climate change and energy use are global problems. News Corp is a global company. Our operations affect the environment all over the world.
Rupert Murdoch - Climate Change - Responsibility - Global Warming - Media - World - Problems - Environmental


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.
Craig Newmark - Technology - People - Ideas - Friends
- Help - Problems - Internet

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 better.
Barack Obama - America - Government - Solutions - Problems - Priorities - Change - Life - Opportunity

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.
Pierre Omidyar - Passions - Problems - Solutions

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 facts.
Suze Orman - Jobs - Problems - Emotional
- Solutions

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.
Orhan 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 way.
Bob Parsons - Learning - Problems - Solutions

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 my way.
Bob Parsons - Problems - Solutions - Leadership - Successful

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.
Bob Parsons - Problems - Challenges - People

Let’s be honest. There’s 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.
Bob Parsons - Problems - Challenges - People - Business - Products

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.
Norman Vincent Peale - Life - Work - Problems - Self Control - Strength

Every problem has in it the seeds of its own solution. If you don’t have any problems, you don’t get any seeds.
Norman Vincent Peale - Problems - Solutions

We’ve got all these politicians talking about better health care and what all, but believe me, we’re not going to have the money to take care of sick people.. or anyone else as far as I’m concerned.. if we don’t fix our energy problem right now. I’ve got an idea what to do. It might not be a perfect idea, but hell, none of my best ideas have been perfect.
T. Boone Pickens - Politicians - Health - Money - Energy - Oil - Problems - Ideas - Perfect

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 economic growth.
Vladimir 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 children.
Daniel 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.
Daniel Quinn - Nature - World - People - Problems - Stupid


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.
Dave Ramsey - Learning - Problems - Money - Responsibility

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.
Dave Ramsey - Poverty - Problems - Money - Mistakes

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.
Gina Rinehart - Challenges - Problems


Mr 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.

I have learned from experience that the sword alone cannot decide this bitter dispute in this land.

Brian Tracy - Achievement - Learning - Goals - Problems - Solutions - Belief


One of the key problems today is that politics is such a disgrace, good people don't go into government.
Donald Trump - Politicians - Problems

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 further.

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.
Steve Wynn - Passion - Real 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.
