Crisis: real or imagined?

In recent months, newspapers and politicians have been pretty much in agreement that we are suddenly facing an international financial crisis.

It would seem that almost overnight economies have gone from being healthy to lying prone on their death beds. In Ireland, for instance.

Out of the blue, there is talk of catastrophy and share and house prices are plumetting. Here too all is now, apparently, virtually doomed. Or is it? The lurch from boom to crisis seems to depend on a variety of factors, not least perceptions and expectations.

So are we really facing a time of hair-shirts and belt tightening or is all this talk of financial abysses little more than political cant and posturing?

Yes, we have a crisis and this is caused by the politicians. They are unable to control the prices. In the meantime supermarkets are eating up our entire salaries. It cant go on like this. A few years ago I needed about 400 for housekeeping and now its closer to 700, and this for two people!  I am self employed, so even though costs are increasing I cant pass it on to the customer. On top there is the increase in the price of fuel.politicians will have to do something.
