This financial crisis is not caused simply by greed and uniformed consumers, as has become the Media's suggestion, it was manufactured, just like many previous financial emergencies of the past. See part 2 of zeitgeistmovie.com for a good overview of the Central Banking/Federal Reserve System and how it creates market crashes to further consolidate wealth and power in fewer hands. There are other excellent books and documentaries on the Federal Reserve that can be easily found worth seeing, but that's basically the crux of it, and that's what Benjamin Franklin said was the main cause of the Revolution: the colonists desire to disconnect from the Central Bank of England and the dependence and exploitation they caused. Unfortunately Americans forgot about that by 1913 and were duped into thinking the Fed would prevent a future financial crisis, but of course that was not the case. The Corporate Media has been talking a lot about the Fed in recent months, about how they are doing all they can to keep the economy afloat, by "bailing out" huge financial institutions. This is simply "Cover My Ass" maneuvering by the Fed (and corporate theft of our tax dollars), so that the current crisis, which may get worse, will not appear (to those uniformed) to be the fault of the Central/International banks behind it all along.
Also worth noting is Bush calling for a "secret meeting" with Obama (to tell him the elections might need to be postponed?), and McCain's talk of canceling the debates. Not that the debates are really anything worth watching, since it's controlled by the Dem/Republican corporate faction that wont allow the views (i.e. Truth) of individuals like Cynthia McKinney (current Green Party presidential candidate) or Ralph Nader to be heard. Why these news bytes are significant is because it is in line with the fascist/neo-con ideology that says democracy can be postponed during a prolonged (manufactured) emergency. I suggest you read some of Bush's "Executive Orders" that support various dictatorial powers and FEMA police-state powers (mass illegal detentions of citizens, etc.), in the event of a "National Emergency":
