    In its scope and speed, isn't it? I work in marketing, for a medium sized private company, and our ad budget for 2009 was approved in early January at $150K. Yesterday the Managing Director rescinded his approval, and now our ad budget is...$0.

    Obviously, this is not a tragedy (well, it is, for the graphic designer we used to keep on retainer for advertising), but the utter...completeness of it, over the course of one month, just took my breath away and, to me, encapsulated this catastrophe, from a small business perspective.

      It is like we were on a ship that was listing for a while and suddenly a bulkhead blew and now it is disappearing below our feet.  I own a small consulting company - I would fall in the category of that designer on retainer though that is not my particular business - and I went from about 15 resume inquiries a month to 2.  And those two are the kind I normally wouldn't even consider.  It was overnight.

      I am not in panic mode, but I am definately planning for a long dry spell.
