American Economy Cartoons - 2 Oct 2010

Wonder along with the rest of America about how our economy is doing and where it's going.

From Denny: Cartoonists offer an incredible snapshot of opinion Americans voice about our economy. Clearly, no one is happy with the state of things. We all wonder how long it will take to get better. Well, the economists are privately talking it will take about 10 years or more, maybe as long as 15 to 20 years - and that it will never return to the high flying days of the previous Clinton years in the '90s.

To take into consideration when the times get hard is the effect upon the middle class mindset. What's already happening, as a result of greedy Big Banks breaking their contracts with credit card holders and exacting harsh penalties and excessive fees, is that people are getting off credit in America. People are paying cash. The benefit of paying cash is that you regain your privacy and make it difficult for Big Business to track your purchases and profile your spending habits - to sell to marketers. Yes, "the times they are a changing."
