“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 . . .
