Bad Economic News Taking Toll on Americans' Emotions
Date:8/9/2011

y experts really feel it's more than that. Recession fatigue is what people had been feeling. The recent furor on Capitol Hill and Wall Street turned it up a notch, they noted.

And remember that there is always room for optimism.

"We do bounce back," added Hilfer. "What would be useful would be to recognize that when things like this happen, things are designed to stabilize again. . . What people will hopefully be able to do is look at history and get some sense
