Bottom’s-Up! Survey: Do you think we have hit Bottom? ( surveys)

I have been waiting patiently, week after week, for a signal that we have hit bottom, so this column can begin to focus on some positives. Yesterday’s news crushed that idea. The Dow crashed below 7,000 and AIG is still tail-spinning, so one has to ask: is there a bottom to this mess? This situation is so extreme, so extraordinary, that last evening the pundits on CNN started speculating on the specter of a depression. On the hiring front, most organizations are still ‘on-hold’, so the line-up of talent on the street continues to build. This must be the bottom, or very close to it. And, for all our sakes, I hope I’m right.
