That is too much !!!! Dont know if there is going to be more than this ! This was likely to happen. If USA can face job losses in masses then it is possible to see similar situation in other countries, too. By the way, who is responsible for causing such economy crunh in the world... it is USA, isn't it. Dont you think USA should provide support to atleast very poor countries to help thier people so that they can survive easily. We have heard about 800 billion dollar by Ex-President Mr. Bush and now similar plan is probably being discussed and is likely to be implemented by Mr Obama. That is too much money isn't it.. but does that make USA economy weaker, does USA govermnet have to to loose lot of money when it does this? Not at all, USA is too rich country , this 800 + 800 billion Dollar package is nothing for USA and it can do more than this. So USA should show pity to poor countries. Ok USA (more specifically Companies i.e Lehman brothers, etc) didn't do it purposely but USA could, for courtesy, help people of other countries so that they can find relief. What do you say?

Well the USA is a rich country...theres no doubt about that....what v can see is that they should definitely give financial aid to the poor countries....lets hope the aid reaches the affected ones......

HOnestly this news is really getting into me. I feel depressed and hopeless whenever this topic is raised. I feel so sorry for us, for experiencing this problem now.I treasure my job now more than ever because I'm very afraid to be included in the jobless list. Hopefully we all survive this and hopefully this crisis will end very soon.

well, this it`s happening in all the world. We all should comsune less and try to live with less. Just that, i think that will resolve all the problems. We all use too much from anything. We must learn how to live when we have so little. God will help us all. Nobody will die from this, or they will die, only if they are too lazy!
