The article reports that political commentator Dick Morris has predicted that the U.S. economy will likely get worse because of the nation's fiscal policies. According to Morris, the U.S. economy, as well as the global economy, is based more on propaganda rather than hard facts and solutions. He claims that the problem is that more money are being printed without the backing to anchor it in consumer confidence. He adds that failure to punish big banks for their crimes exacerbates the problem.
