Indexes in Paris and Frankfurt slumped by about 7%, while markets in Asia, India and South America also dropped.

Investors questioned whether a recent plan to boost the US economy would be enough to avert a full-blown recession.

Wooooooooo my predictions are still on course to come true... recession for 2009 imho!

So true Daz, people cannot keep spending more and more on credit and expect it to last... the hard times are just around the corner imho. I like the way the government try and make out we have never had it so good and everyone lives a life of luxury under Labour, what they forget to mention is that everyone is living this life on credit!

Did you know, this country has 1.3million million (yes you saw that right, a real British billion, or a US trillion) pounds worth of debt!!

And we are facing interest payments of 83billion this year alone!!!!

Jow, just remember most banks offer now 5x your wages, so when the prices fall so will what the bank offers, it will go back to 3.5x your wages so at the moment i can get 100000 for a house apprently. but when house prices fall and i go the bank to buy that 5 bedroom house ive got my house on for 95000 they will laugh at me cos they will only lend me 70000 less deposit
