The two sides

It was a terrible morning and I was reading the news in my office about the trade war talks between China and the US, the impeachment about Mr. President and the unrested protest in Hong Kong.

The conclusion about all these news would be: the growth of the economy is slowing down.

“There are usually two sides to every story. The economic environment is getting worse, and the government just tried to make up some reasons.” said my Boss. And he was just having his cup of black coffee and expressed his indifference about all these news.

“But the protests in Hong Kong is nothing about economy, it’s a political issue!” I totally disagreed with his view of point and I was quite worried about my friends in Hong Kong.

“Don’t trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar. Go as far as you can to see. When you get there, you’ll see further.” He replied.

“Why you always think that everything is about money?” I asked and I always doubted him about it.

“You’re too young to understand. Money is the root of all evil.” He answered and he went out of his office.

Unhappy news, evil money, my “apathetic” boss. What a terrible morning.
