If Alan Greenspan says....."If more people decrease down their spending it could lead to a slow down in the economy, a reduction of jobs, increased unemployment, and a potential recession", a significant number of people will get scared. And do what? Decrease their spending. Which leads to a slowdown in the economy, a reduction of jobs, increased unemployment, and the very recession they were worried about.
Makes me wonder WHY all these people who didn't buy one before have pannicked and bought one at outragious prices.
IOW, these^^^^^^ kinds of people, people who do things based on fear of what "might" happen.
