This just in:

Following the problems with Lehmann Bros and the sub-prime lending market in the USA uncertainty has now hit Japan.

In the last 7 days Origami Bank has folded, Sumo Bank has gone belly up, and Bonsai Bank announced plans to cut some of its branches. Yesterday, it was announced that Karaoke Bank is up for sale and will likely go for a song, while today shares in Kamikaze Bank were suspended after they nose-dived.
While Samurai Bank is soldiering on following sharp cutbacks, Ninja Bank is reported to have taken a hit, but they remain in the black.

When God decides the fall is over then you will know. God corrects our greed, our blindness to saneness. It's his way of cleansing everyone throughout the world. Make us realize that we need to simplify our lives. We will come out of this huge downturn a better person, a better nation and a better world.

Our value system will be back to normal after a few years. The problem will be once we begin our recovery process we will lose a generation of equity investors because of this crash. The trust in the markets will take a long long time to recover. I do feel sad for retirees that depended on their IRA's for their survival. Let's hope the man above helps them first.
