I don't like starting new threads, and there are probably 1000 others out there on this subject, and maybe 3 that I actually started myself. I want to hear from people who know why the economy is still in trouble. Personally I feel the economy is still in serious, serious trouble and would be surprised if we don't see the beginnings of a second dip next week. The deficit is nothing to sneeze at. The new jobs could get cut quickly if the bailout in Europe doesn't take quick effect and slow down the waves of economic fallout that will inevitably circle the globe. And finally there just isn't much economic growth to pay off the debts of every Tom, Dick and Uncle Sam. Whadya all think?
