Question 6: In keeping with our Happy New Year Theme, today’s question is: What is the most important thing to happen in 2008 for America?
The most important thing to happen in 2008 for America has been the credit crisis. The election was definitely important, but the credit crisis will have a much more long lasting effect on how the country functions as a whole. The American mindset has become “buy now, pay later” and it is this mindset that has landed us in the situation that we now find ourselves. If nothing else good comes out of this crisis, I think it will force banks and credit card companies to be more careful about whom they give credit and how much credit they extend.
