The cover and leader are equally scary

I'm not exactly the type that runs around and worries about a coming Armageddon. And I actually don't think the financial crisis will trigger Armageddonish types of events on a significant scale (civil unrest, wars et c). But I do agree with the leader in this week's Economist that there is a significant risk that last weeks' signs of a turnaround is premature.

And the obvious risk would be that all different types of stimuli together with an unfounded optimism can create a boost that ruins the world economy even more. There is a reason to why you need to rest when you're sick.

And the cover is just brilliant. As scary as the inside.
