I think it’s looking better than it was in 2012. I’m about to get into the job market in another month, after I graduate, and I’m not really that scared about it. Ryan Freund

I think that things are going to continue to improve economically. And with the president being re-elected, I’m very hopeful.

I don’t have a lot of faith that things are going to go well this year. I believe that we’re going to lose more jobs, we’re going to have a lot more taken out of our pocket, [and there will be] a lot of people struggling to make things meet. I just feel that since I do have faith in God that he will provide for those that trust and believe in him.

If we don’t see some change real fast I have a feeling that next year we could see some imploding of the economy. It’s getting tough, it’s getting rough, and things don’t seem to be getting better.

You’re talking to a guy who is in business for himself. I run a green business. I collect solar energy. My business is growing like crazy. I think that it’s because other people are conserving. They’re not going out and buying stuff, they’re recycling things they have. I suspect we’ve probably got another year and a half to two years before this really turns around. That’s my gut feeling.
