The Daily Quote

"As bad as it is today, it could have been so much worse…If the financial system had collapsed [businesses on Wall Street and Main Street alike] wouldn’t have been able to access funds to pay their employees, who then wouldn’t have money to pay their bills. It would have cascaded through our economy... [It was] one of the worst times in our country’s history…  But it was in many ways the best time, watching all these people come together to put out the fire.”
