I wrote this post in my old blog, 22 months ago, on Thursday, March 27, 2008. When experts where posing the question how subprime led the US economic crisis was going to affect other economies, ie how dependent or "coupled" they were with the US economy.
22 months later, let's use the following as food for thought:
How much de-coupled from the US economy is .....?
It is said that in recent decades, many economies depend on the US economy for their own growth (eg via exports to the US, etc). In view of the recent troubles of the US economy and the advent of globalisation, it seems that certain economies are now less dependent ("coupled") on the US economy. So:
How much de-coupled from the US economy is your national economy? Your continent?
How much de-coupled from the US economy is your company, your employer, their sectors, your job?
How much de-coupled from the US economy are your family/personal investments/finances?
How much de-coupled from the US economy is your life?
