My brain numbs whenever financial reports come on the television. In light of the current financial crisis that has hit the US and the subsequent media coverage updating us all about how much money was lost etc. I am SO confused about what the hell is going on! Its normal primetime news and they go into these crazy explanations that apparently the lay man is supposed to understand yet i sit there and listen and try with all my might to work out what is actually going on and nope nothing… i hope i am not the only one that feels like a complete idiot whenever the words stock market, drop, financial crisis, subsidary, bail out and all the rest of them are mentioned! You’d think the news could just try and dumb it down a little bit so those with no economic knowledge whatsoever can understand what has happened, why and how its going to affect the individual.
