ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the U.S. politicians' regretful handling of the ongoing financial crisis.

It is stated that U.S. is facing economic crisis and is acting alone in terms of having a central bank committed to the bold moves needed to avoid a repeat of the Great Depression. It is stated that the current situation requires political strength and dedication.
