In my midweek busy stretch, I sometimes don't have time to write out a long piece or even read others (just to have something to recommend to readers). So, I want to put out something out to think about and discuss, if anyone should desire to do so:
My aim is not to minimize or underplay the current banking crisis in any way, shape, or form. This is a serious crisis, it has been for some time now. But in the scheme of things here, I wonder just how much of this is coming to head now, because of the election year. By this I mean, has the media driven this to near panic levels, when just being gravely concerned would be enough?
Like I said, this is not intended to minimize this situation, not in the least. I just see so much fear in the countenances of people I work with, I just have to wonder if the media isn't trying to drive this election by using the emotions of people, to effect their desired response.
Anyone else wonder about this?
