: And you must have passed on reality. When markets crash, entire life savings are lost. And contrary to current neoliberal propaganda, crashes do not always rebound immediately. Ever heard of 1929---or was that just some commie plot?

SDF: And the crash of 1929-1932 was supposedly peanuts compared to the Russian crash of this decade, or the crash of 1837-the 1840s. Shall we start a thread on economic crashes, which ones were worse and why?
