economics

if we all cancel christmas, we'll kill the economy

history isn't written yet,
we're not stuck in a depression yet,
if we stop spending any money won't the economy necessarily shrivel and wither?
shouldn't we keep spending? in places we love for experiences and things and food we love?
no fear.

i keep seeing 'stocks tumble amidst fears...'
let's stop fearing
and stocks will climb

My understanding is that two thirds of our economy is based upon consumerism. So, we can't stop spending for the basics and if you can afford more, yes, you should buy stuff. It will keep things moving. And, yes, the stock market is highly emotional - just like a casino.
