Why You Should Get it Over With On the surface, it would seem like given a choice, most people would rather delay a painful event. Really? Well, in reality that is not what actually happens. Indeed, that's why when a delayed event appears to actually be about to happen, people are relieved and indeed ready to get it over with. On June 11, 1982, the much anticipated boxing match between the great Larry Holmes and Gerry Cooney finally took place. To declare how badly Larry Holmes wanted to get it over with, he came into the ring from his dressing room to the tune of the song by McFadden and Whitehead, Ain't no stopping us now. The fight was the most hyped black versus white boxing match in about three decades. Gerry Cooney, a superb knockout specialist was thought to be the man, and indeed the best white man to defeat the great champion that Larry Holmes was. As the song says "There's been so many things thats held us down. But now it looks like things are finally comin' around". And so it also appears with the 2015 Nigeria elections, after the fears of postponement and the actual postponement, things are finally coming around and ain't nothing stopping us now, we are on the move. Concerning the elections, the wait has been costly in the national and international anxiety and uncertainty. After the election, and Nigeria passing the test, things should come back to normal, again. And that's why people indeed want to get it over with. The discounted present value of any future pain and losses often turn out to be much lower than the weight and burden of waiting. So let's get it over with. Indeed as we often see, the waiting often turns out to be more dreadful than the event itself. So luckily, for the 2015 elections, Nigeria is set to end the anxiety, and the uncertainty and all the costs of waiting and postponing. Nigeria will see that it's far better for the country to get it over with. Thankfully, we are on the move. Our hidden economics for you.
