Another Great Depression?
Another Great Depression? I really believe in a couple years we are going to go into another Great Depression. We are all ready in a mild Recession. Currently the U.S. is in several billion dollars of debt. Most of this money was borrowed from Asian countries, (particularly China). If our current trade agreement with China goes south, we will find ourselves with no money and massive debt. Taxes will be raised and businesses will close down. Without imports from China means prices on all goods skyrocket. Remember though, these events are highly unlikely. Although prices are all ready skyrocketing because of the fuel crisis and they have to raise prices on merchandise to help pay to import them here. BUSH could do something about the fuel crisis but he has stocks in it, so he’s just letting the money roll in… and we call him our president huh? Im glad he’s leaving the Whitehouse everything wasn’t so f****d up until he stepped in the office! Rich is getting richer poor is poorer.

May be closer than many think, even with all the safeguards that we have in place. If and or when it happens it ain't gonna be pretty.

Sorry, but all the economic data indicate that even this current downturn is starting to recover. As for your economic analysis, I can only recommend you take an economics class sometime.

I do not agree with you, but for a different reason. There are too many measures in place to keep a repeat of 1929 from happening. But I do understand what your premise is, and there is a chance that this could happen. Stay positive, keep working and save money in trreasury bonds

it's already begun. the market measures that were put in after 1930's had points when the fed could step in and try and re-balance the system before it tipped too far and "upset the cart" so to speak. but peak oil, massive debt, personal debt, job losses and corporate tax avoidance and consumerism have stripped away...

I agree there "could" be another Great Depression. The reason gas prices are so is not because of Bush, it's in large part because of the Federal Reserve running their printing presses non stop. The more dollars they put in the system the less they are worth. They have been bailing out other private banks with our tax... More
