So . . . does anyone else feel nervous about owing other super-power countries huge gobs of money? People keep saying that this is a recession just like we've experienced before (even though this is being called the worst financial melt-down since the 1930s) - but I don't think so. I think that the American financial situation will never be the same, and I wonder if we will ever know prosperity again like we've known it for the last 20 years. Now, I'm no expert, so don't take my word for it . . .http://academicearth.org/lectures/origins-of-financial-mess
