'other countries'

Recommended Posts

being in america, the exposure to things not directly pertaining to our american culture are few and far between, and reading the guardian online is a chore <_<

 

what's this economic meltdown feel like in other countries? is this mainly an anglo-amero-icelandic thing?

 

does it feel like we're getting our due, or like it could spread globally?

i think it already is global. anyone connected with trading on those dodgy mortgages (i.e. the rest of the global economy) has been hit.

 

having said that - at the moment ordinary people in the UK not connected with banks, bankers or banking seem to be doing ok, as long as they don't want to re-mortgage their house, or get some other sort of easy credit. AFAIK, the worst is still to come though...

'they' keep telling that it's not the same and blablabla but so far in reality it seems pretty much the same. people are being fired, difficulties with loans in all ways and so on.
