the United States?
this is NOT just the US, this is a global recession, we are no longer an american economy, we're a global economy.
maybe we should focus our energies on improving our own lives, both spiritually, and monetarily.
anyway, we are freaking out for nothing, we have had nine recessions since the great depression. its a cycle, it goes from hunky dory (aka lots of money), to recession, to depression, back to hunky dory.
this is a normal part of capitalism, and while we should focus on saving money, and cutting back costs in our own lives, I dont think we need to worry so much about how the global economy will turn it, it will survive, its the people I am afraid for.
