    Because the government just throws money at problems... instead of stopping to think how we got here and how to keep it from happening again.

    If you ask me its on sale and if I had the money to I would invest some now since it will go back up, in my opinion.

    neal yeah i would say its going to go back up aswell......when is the real question.....for the youngins that have time to ride it out its not actually that big of a deal.....for those looking to retire in say the next 2-5 years it is.............

    if i had a few extra grand i would be doing alot of research right now and seeing what i could pick up cheap that is likely to bounce back strong.....

    The scary part is that the US government and so many people were so far in debt at the end of a long boom period. The idea is to store food before winter so you don't have to be searching for it as the first snow falls.

    The bottom is not in sight, as the commercial paper market is still in a deep freeze. Unfortunately, things can get a lot worse, and it looks like they will. More banks will fail. More businesses will fail. Unemployment will increase. Homelessness will rise, and so will crime. We just don't know by how much. And we don't know how long the crisis will last. It could be years. Everyone should re-evaluate their situation in light of possible new future scenarios that we face that were not even in our consciousness a few weeks ago. By making adjustments, each of us can minimize the effects of this crisis on our lives. I hope all of us emerge from it relatively unscathed.

    Excellent idea, if all goes well, in my opinion, we should see a resurgence of manufacturing in the world before long. Also consider anything relating to energy and communication, the good ol' standbys.

    We just cleared out all saving in stocks. The values were dropping like rocks so we froze it pretty quick. I'm still concerned since one job I have is state based, the other depends on rich people with relatively expendable incomes. I wonder which will bomb first?

    I live near a lot of ranches, however. If need be I live in a community that can operate fairly self-sufficiently and I'm sure if we really, REALLY tanked, everyone's gonna be planting seed by hand in a couple years.

    Although, if High School interviews with octegenarians has any bearing, it's really on the urban fat cats(and chubby kitties, for gradient's sake) who have a problem. Podunk America doesn't really have to worry much
