If you look at out standards of living and quality of life, im not sure we could call this a great depression.
MOST, people i know are still in jobs, feeling the pinch a little but surviving.
It isnt tales like my nan and granddad, going to school without shoes and that!
I still maintain the media makes this "Depression" 5 times worse than it is.
I have lost money, i have to cut back on things but overall, i really can't complain about my lot.
