ABSTRACT
This article offers the author's opinion on the U.S. economy in light of a unpredictable stock market during the second week of November 2007. The volatility in the market is being caused by things like the price of oil, the financial statement of General Motors, a threat by China to dump some of its dollar assets and the rhetoric of political candidates. The author cautions that panic, with or without justification, can slow down consumer spending and defer investments.
