Economic crisis in America and top search words in internet
George W. Bush - Press conference about economic crisis
Top ten searched words in internet
The top 10 words searched in American Internet on second October 2008 are morales, uss intrepid, house peters jr, palin bingo, vice presidential debate, reborn baby.com, gwen ifill wheelchair, kelly pugnea, mr. clean and reborn babies.
I have taken the trend just after President Bush addressed economic crisis in a press conference September 30, 2008.
The search items are generally not generic. These are based on some current topic or so. Some concern with politics is seen in the search topics but nothing about finance and economics.
Internet is the most powerful tool to acquire knowledge. Search words or topics show people's interest. It is also surprising that nothing is searched about international matters. Are Americans so confined? Have they no concern with rest of the world?
It is not in the interest of Americans. According to economists remaining aloof from the world is economically suiciding attitude. America, the USA, is the pioneer of globalization. However, this very attitude `of its citizens (in this era of globalization) is surprising!
As an Indian I may not be able to understand needs of Americans and their interests. However, I can not understand how Iman Morales or USS intrepid will effect their life. Political issues like "Vice presidential debate" or "Palin bingo " , of course, have effect on one's life but what about 'rebornbabies'. They made it a concern with "Gwen Ifill wheel chair" which is a drama of the day according to "News spread it".

Next top ten search words in America
The next top ten (eleventh to twentieth ) search words in the Internet in America are Mr clean,125.0 am tampa, tampa bay rays radio, vp debate, britney benton, senate bailout bill, laura recovery center, bellanca, bellanca aircraft and michael pigott.
Again there is nothing about economy or financial crisis. America is undergoing a tremendous financial and economic crisis but people are not interested in economy. They are facing financial problems in their daily life.They are not searching much about finance, credits, mortgages and jobs. Not much peoplehave concern with bail out packages. It seems that they do not bother about government policies on economy, finance and taxation those will directly affect American citizens.
"1250 am tampa" and "tampa bay rays radio" are searched for some entertainment. Much of the people have concern with 'Bellanca' or "Bellanca aircraft" for the sole purpose of entertainment. They can. of course, justify search about "Laura recovery center", because it has a serious social concern.
How are these top search words in Internet concerned with one's life? It seems that Americans are much more interested in funny topics like Britney Benton but economy.

Economic crisis in America
Are you an American?
Are you one of them who have searched those topics? Are you not affected with the present economic crisis? Are you sure that you will not be affected in future?
I shall be happy if global economic crisis would not effect you but it seems difficult. Therefore, it is advisable to read this hub and other related articles or books in order to protect your future.
Americans are in tremendous financial and economic crisis. The nation, the society and the individuals are in economic and financial problem. The Americans are looking at bail out bill of senate. People are hopeful of Presidential election near by. Presidential hopeful Mccain failed in arguing effectively about financial matters in the Presidential debate. He concentrated more on foreign policy. It looks like that people have no or little idea about what to do and what not to.
I have been writing about economic crisis and financial problems of America much before failures of financial institutes. Those have got lesser hits in hubpages. Is this lack of concern in your interest ? People are still busy with many other things than their own financial problems and their own future. Do you think Knowledge about "House peters Jr." or "Mr. clean", actors, help you in solving your financial problems and economic crisis?
Are Americans financially intellegent?
Have the last laugh
How can you have the last lough?
I have already given a list of top twenty most searched words in America in Internet. Only few are relevant to economic and financial matters. There is only one important economic and financial topic in the list of twenty i.e. "senate bailout bill" placed at number 16 in the list. If one is not concerned with his or her own future how can one expects coming out of problems. If one shuts eyes to one’s problem and take an easy going attitude, no one can help.
What do you think? One should have concern with his / her financial rebirth or about reborn babies doll? should he or she search for "Financial problem of America", "Why Americans are in financial problem?" or search for 'Kelly pugnea' ?
I hope you are not among them. You have concerns with your own future. You are concerned about your financial problems. You want to know reasons and root causes of those problems, and of course, the solutions. It is not advisable for you to ignore these now. Otherwise it may, at any point of time, convert into a crisis.
It is better to be a little bit financially intelligent. You need it because this and only this can save you in the present situation. You may be intelligent and knowledgeable in matters other than economy and finance. That perhaps, can not save you from the present economic and financial problems. Your financial intelligence can, however, save you.
know the technique of investing. Get rid of credit crunch and mortgage payments.Be wise!
Have the last laugh!
Should Americans live as they are or change?
Updates - Searching trends remains same after six years
1. NFL 2 Dallas Cowboys 3 Nfl Scores 4 Steelers 5 Denver Broncos 6 Patriots 7 Jack the Ripper 8 Joan Rivers funeral 9 Eagles 10 Chicago Bears 11 Grandparents Day 12 Cam Newton 13 Atlanta Falcons 14 Notre Dame 15 Molly Glynn 16 Ohio State Football 17 Raiders 18 Ravens 19 Utopia and 20 Vikings are the top search words in the internet according to Google search today on September 8, 2014.
Te top searched word NFL scores more than half million searches where as top two to ten have more than two hundred thousands and the rest have more than hundred thousands searches as per google search.
Most of these are related to sports and few are related to celebrities, TV shows etc. Only one search is related to social cause that comes to number eleven and that is Grandparents Day.None of the search is related to real life conditions and problems.
Analyzing the trends we can come to a conclusion that Americans are still concerned about entertainment and not serious about life and economics. The situation has remained same in the US after 6 years.
It also seems that Americans have not learnt lesson from previous economic crisis in the year 2008. They have not yet changed their behavior pattern. This can be a reason for anxiety for the nation. It will be economically better if the common US citizens will become serious about their economic health.
