“The Great . . . [Something]

As the evolving financial crisis ratchets up a notch — or two — so is the gravity of the names being tossed out as would-be labels.

So far, the leading candidate is probably “The Crash of 2008.”

However, just in the last few days, a new slew of contenders have made their appearance — many of which now contain the adjective “Great.”

Roughly in order of popularity in the blogosphere (subjectively judged by me), they are:

1. The Great Recession

2. The Discontinuity

3. The Great Disruption

Hopefully, there won’t be need for even more portentous names any time soon . . .
