Dow Suffering from Negative Energy
"In these times of recession and possible job losses," reads the press release, "a Baylor University researcher and positive psychology expert says above all else, never lose hope and view change as an opportunity." Psychology and neuroscience professor Dr. Michael Frisch lays it all out in his new book, Creating Your Best Life, in which he advises you to "surround yourself with family and friends that encourage you and believe in your potential and ability to succeed." So that's what's wrong with the market -- too much negative input, not enough believing. Quick, everybody put on your happy faces before we all wind up in the pencils-and-apples trade.
