OK, naive question, but someone has to ask it.


Economy downfall.


And how will it impact the average Joe?

I think a bank run will be the next big thing.Credit cards will start being declined,and the banks will not have enough cash on hand to handle the influx of people.

I think we're at a mini-depression state.

I think within the next few years, our economy will start to climb again, just as it always does historically. I think what you're seeing here is one of the valleys on the peaks-and-valleys chart of the market over time.

And one more thing... Where will they get the $700 billion?

They can't raise income tax because that would cause public unrest. So will they "tax" us through inflation?

And I will ask what is on everybody's minds: How does one ECONOMICALLY survive this recession? Meaning, without heading for the hills.

We have to begin barter and trade with our fellows.Our money isn't going to be worth spit. Trade your talents for survival,simple as that.
