Random Poll Friday
The economy. Are you worried? Sometimes, I can't decide whether to be seriously worried, or whether the media is just having a heyday with it. Do you think all the media coverage and hype over the last few months is making things worse (you know, putting ideas in people's heads, making them worried, in turn keeping them from spending money, etc. etc. etc.)? Do you think Bush is doing the right thing with this bailout idea, or is he just trying to leave his presidency on a "good note" if it works? I've only ever taken one economy class, and don't remember much from it. Maybe I'm not understanding the severity of the situation, but as far as I remember, recessions are a normal part of a free market, capitalist system. And after a recession, there generally follows a boom. Then, of course, I read about people's retirement savings in peril, and that does make me worried. Just trying to sort out my feelings on the subject, I guess. Comment away!
