Questions, Please: Our Rattled Economy

Y'all, on news that the Federal Reserve is whacking the interest rate by three-quarters of a point, the BPP is going all out on the economy. We need your questions/comments, please.

Specifically, we need questions from listeners about the economy — anything and everything you that you're wondering about. The interest rate, the mortgage crisis, the national debt, the possible $800 tax rebate — if you're wanting to ask, this is a great chance. We'll put the best questions to a guest on the air.

Second, we're wondering if anyone of you have noticed changes in your own spending habits. If you're worried about the economy, tell us what set those butterflies off. (Me, I started noticing that my pockets went empty a lot faster than I expected — a brush with stagnant income in a world of rising prices. You?)
