The article refutes those who predict doom for the U.S. It contends that those so-called doom-criers are only wanting to cash on the people who would buy their books and other products they sell which presumably can help people cope or survive the chaos that will happen. It explains that predicting the future with certainty is impossible. People can only tell what might happen based on several factors in the present that will affect the future. It points out that there is reason to believe, based on presented factors, that the future of the U.S. economy will be better.
