It’s everywhere; the newspaper, broadcast news, advertisements, and casual conversations.
They all start the same way, “With the current economic crisis…” “Isn’t it nice to know that with these tough economic times you can still save money on your auto insurance?” The “bad economy” is a new reference point of casual conversation and the media. “Well, you know the economy…” In the words of our governor in his address to the state legislature, “Last year, we confronted what history will record as The Great Recession.”
