It’s the End of the World as We Know it… is Your Bank Fine?

September 22, 2008

As I’m sure you all know, the financial markets took a beating last week.  As we wait to see what the government does to “eliminate toxic debt” and how the markets react, it could be another interesting week on Wall Street.

I’ve tried to not write about the events too much, I didn’t want to add to the sweeping frenzy and panic, but here is some coverage of last week’s events from around the blogospere:

    I may be really wrong here, (and have an unpopular opinion) but I think it’s just a much needed correction.
    Things had gotten way out of hand and too far from reality. The prices of
    housing had gone totally crazy and way out of line. It needed to come back
    to reality.
    Hopefully it will all come out in the wash, as they say.

    In the meantime, I am continuing life much the same as always,
    and not worried. I did make one exception tho, and bought some
    more stocks last week – seemed the timing was right!
