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.

"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
