Freakout-onomics

I've said several times that as far as "downturns" or "recessions" go, this one actually isn't as bad as it's made out to be so far. It may well get much MUCH worse, but so far it has been relatively mild in terms of changes in actual output and employment and that this particular financial crisis is not all that different or unique in comparison to past episodes in the postwar era, but don't take my word for it: Take theirs, or theirs (cross-posted via Economix). Basic idea: Times are indeed tough, but we've been through worse, and made it out. Hang in there as best you can, folks.
