If I did not have to take a loss on stocks I already own I see a lot of bargains for sure. I don't believe a recovery this time is going to be very quick though. A lot of damage has been done and the darn banks don't seem to want to lend a dime to anyone. We just may have to socialize our banks, they seem to have lost the will to perform the function they were created for. I guess it comes down to whether you are a speculator or an investor. The rise of the peso seemed to be closely correlated with higher gas prices but that is just something I have not really paid too much attention to. Any other ideas on that?
