. October 16, 2007 SouthAmerica: I donât know why this thread discussing stock market crashes in the United States was moved from the economics forum to the Politics and Religion forum. I guess the moderator of the economics forum think that stock market crashes has no economic consequences for the United States because it is caused or by politics or by an act of God. Anyway we can talk about the possibility of a stock market crash on the Paul Krugman's thread 1928 and the stock market crash â you can find it at the politics and religion forum. The other possibility that this thread was moved to the Politics and Religion forum is because Wall Street is hoping for an act of God (Religion) to avoid the stock market crash. No wonder they are resorting to God to save them â with the sub-prime mess getting worse, the war in Iraq engulfing another country into the conflict â Turkey â and oil prices approaching $ 100 dollars per barrel. I guess it is getting to the point that only God can help. At the end of the day the truth is the stock market in the United States is way overdue for a major stock market crash like the one in 1929. .
