I'm sure this won't interest 99% of people here - and it hardly interests me - but I came across this positive outlook from a blogger who appears to understand global finance and markets. (I don't understand this stuff well enough to really know if he does, but he reads like the real deal).
See the quote from the end of his most recent blog on the next post. If his assessment is correct - and it seems likely when we think about who the main losers have been to date - this financial meltdown could turn out to be a darn good thing!
May the fat cats have their overstuffed cushions yanked from under their asses!
