Decision time for little cogs in the big global economic machine?

From Jeff Jones of APM’s Public Insight Network:

There’s a sense this week that everything’s changing again with the economy, and it’s either time to make a big decision or put off that big decision.

MPR’s Public Insight Network is hearing from people reacting to the stock market turmoil.

Here’s an audio montage they produced of three people reacting to yesterday’s 5.6% drop in the Dow in very different ways. One woman decides this isn’t the time to reconsider her work/life balance after all. A corporate actuary is consciously deciding to do nothing because weeks like this are exactly what diversification is for. And a small business owner actually spent the weekend advising a customer not to buy a truck from her for at least a week, until things calm down.
