What will happen if the fears of the article come true? What sort of ripple effect can we expect here in the States?
I’d also like to ask a more general question: for some reason, it seems to me that the economic fear lately, especially in the media, has been muted. Perhaps we’ve gotten used to instability and nervousness about the next crash, but it certainly seems that the recent stock market plunges and other signs of chaos have been met with at least somewhat less absolute terror than the initial phases. What might this mean, if anything, for both us Joe the Plumbers (sorry) and the economy in general? Has your outlook on the future changed at all? What more needs to be done? WILL it be done? Would it matter who wins next Tuesday?
