People weren't hoarding supplies and food in 2008.BogleFanGal wrote: ↑Sun Mar 15, 2020 10:52 am I'm really amazed at the flood of reactions and heavy posting activity on BH threads lately- as if the market's been down for months with no light at tunnel end vs just a week or two. If people are freaking out this much now, what will happen in the weeks and months ahead? I don't remember this much angst at the beginnning of the 2008-2010 recession - it wasn't till it kept dragging on and continuing to plummet that many started feeling like maybe there wasn't going to be an end in sight and it really WAS different this time.
Schools, events, movie theaters weren't being shut down.
Most of life appeared to be normal in 2008.
Living in an outbreak zone here in Washington state, we're perhaps a bit ahead of the curve compared to what many will soon be experiencing.
