Seven Days in October – Floyd Norris Blog – NYTimes.com

Very rarely in American history have events conspired in such a way to make a presidential election seem peripheral to the main stage events happening elsewhere in the country. With the nomination of a unique candidate like of Barack Obama, this seems on the surface more unlikely than ever. But a part of me can’t help but think that the lack of political leadership in Washington on the economic front and the hollow remedies offered up in the campaigns could make a mockery of an election that was supposed to be transformative.

If either candidate wants to earn the respect of the electorate, offering a reasoned and honest speech on the causes of and solutions to this economic crisis is long overdue. Simply trying to ‘play it safe’ by not talking about the 800-lb gorilla in the room is not going to work in 2008.

What will Americans think when they realize that since the end of September, they have lost $1 of every $5 they have left? Or that of the 500 stocks in the S.&P. index, 498 are down this month? The exceptions are two banks that had lost the bulk of their value before this — National City and Wachovia.

Here is how the performance of the S.&P. 500 over the past 12 months — and since the end of September — breaks out by sector.

Consumer staples, down 14.7% in October, down 16.2% for the 12 months.

Health Care, down 17.5%, down 30.6%.

Utilities, down 18.6%, down 35.0%.
