Current Stock Decline in Perspective

The Internet is an interesting place. Today one of my favorite blogs, CalculatedRisk, had a post that linked to a blog another from a financial planner who posted this chart.  Click here for a bigger image.

The chart compares four large market corrections, the Crash of 1929, the 1973 Oil Crisis, the 2000 Tech Crash, and the current Credit Crisis.  This does not predict anything, but it does provide some perspective and food for thought.
