Woot... or woot?

Personally, I am scared of this depression. I live in Florida, which is now suffering the worst economic downfall in my life time. A major college scholarship program is running out of money. Phosphate (Primary export) is depleting. Disney World is too much of a luxury for most individuals. Homeless rates are a pain. The education system is on the verge of collapse due to Charlie Crist's inability to manipulate spending. Florida is in deep-doodoo, and I bet that other states are experiencing the same types of problems as well.

So exactly why is this happening? Is this deeper than the AIG collapse? Could this possibly signal the future of increase governmental power and a future war for resources?

What is the root of the minor economic depression in the beginning anyways? Does anyone have a new idea?
