How much impact has 'the crisis' on your surroundings today?

  1. I live in Western Europe.

    Don't know anyone who lost his job.

    Those I know from hearsay who lost their job (with and without higher education) found new ones within a short timeframe.

    Don't know anyone who had to cut back.

    Don't know anyone who cares about 'the economy.'

    I do not hang in upper class kompany.

    Pure Middle class. Two worker couples who have to work hard to pay the bills.

    Still, 1 out of 10 live below the poverty line here in my country.

    I guess they all live together in their neighbourhoods and the fact we have a very extensive social security is responsible for this crisis so far being mostly something I read about on Zero Hedge.

    How about you?
