    Fear, uncertainty are common themes as families face economic toll - latimes.com

    As the economy falters, families that lost homes and livelihoods in the Great Recession are increasingly confronting the possibility that they may never fully recover. Previous recessions have taken a lasting toll, reducing family earnings and children's odds of academic success.

    There but for the Grace, etc.

    It was part of the plan of a permanent majority for the republicans.

    The monied interests love a volitile market, they make money going up and down.

    That is why our country was able to build a big middle class under Galss steagal.

    now that its gone they get their way.

    You bet. We buy low (raising prices on dips) and sell high (lowering the peaks), and before you know it there's no more volatility. It's hard work but if it were easy it wouldn't be fun.

    The question here is how does people working for a living make the economy 'falter'?
