Calling all readers – So how are you handling all the economic news of the past few weeks?

In times such as these – with the markets upset, credit tight and worry common – we’d like to turn to readers for their perspective.

The News Tribune business team is preparing a story for this weekend, and we’d like to speak with readers. We will be interviewing the necessary officials and experts, but we’d like to know how Monday’s market meltdown, and the events of the past few weeks, have affected you.

We’d like to speak with consumers and the owner of small a business, a financial adviser and a losing shareholder, a retailer, a young investor, a retired person on a fixed income and an economist. Perhaps we can meet a parent who is trying to explain the economy to a child. Perhaps we can speak with you.

If you’d like to assist with the story, please contact Marcelene Edwards, business editor, at 253-597-8638 or Please include your name and a daytime phone number.
