Biz, U.S.: Scary depressing numbers of the day (they’re about the economy)

  • 0-0.25% the current Federal interest rate, a historical low; the Feds are willing to take drastic measures to speed up the economy
  • 5.4% the reported drop in economic activity in the fourth quarter of 2008. That’s the steepest such drop in 26 years. Yikes. source
