Cut:

from a related and endemic cause. An example would be the Great Depression, provoked by the stock market crash of 1929, or the less-drastic stock market deflation in the last decade, caused by the over-expansion of technology, or "blue chip," stocks, beyond their value or profit.

This blames the Great Depression on the Crash of 2009, even though unemployment was no worse then, then after the housing bubble collapsed in 2008.

It also blames "over-expansion" of technology, as if engineering progress were somehow harmful. This might just be poor writing, and the author(s) may have only meant that technology prices had gone up too high.

Perhaps the real enemy here is speculation, rather than free market economics. Do we have an article explaining what a "correction" is? --Ed Poor Talk 09:06, 20 January 2010 (EST)
