Just saw that markets in the US are looking bad again as the Senate refused a bill to help the US automakers. Thousands, even millions, look set to lose jobs.
It appears the effects will also be felt globally as index futures have fallen in other countries as well.
How much worse can it get? It seems the US government must do something to resolve the situation, as the human costs will be serious.
Hope everyone who is really suffering as a result of this crisis can stay calm despite the difficulties- hopefully we will all see a timely resolution of this problem and standards of living will recover!
