The stock market slipped into bear territory as the nation's housing troubles spread and credit costs pushed higher, while corporate bankruptcies and government infusions of liquidity transformed the financial industry.

First place I have many family traditions. One of them is every Christmas I get a real tree. I get real Christmas trees because fake ones don't smell nearly as good as real trees.

Our United States is beginning another financial crisis. I remember the financial crisis of 1929. I was born in 1916, which made me a teenager when Wall Street crashed. We heard about men jumping to their deaths from skyscrapers because they couldn't face the results of their financial ruin.
