(Sorry if this is not in the right forum, but since it said 'politics,' I suspected it would go here)
If you have been noticing lately with America's economy, many predict of a recission coming a long. For those who do not know what a recession is, it basically means that people are not buying enough products from different areas of the marketplace, which creates an economical slump. A longer form of a recession is a 'depression,' most noted from the 1930's is the 'Great Depression.'
I may not know as much about consumer-ism (sp?), but the news terrifies me that we can go into a depression soon. Since many of you may be more fluent in this situation, what are your ideas? Is a recession going to occor or already has? What has been the problems? What are the solutions? Is this a fake prediction or something much bigger?
Explain your ideas...seriously, I'm freaked out about this!
