ABSTRACT
The article offers information about the response of 2008 U.S. presidential candidates John McCain and Barack Obama to the 2008 U.S. financial crisis. The candidates' economic projections from the second presidential debate are compared to actual economic developments. Widespread distrust of both candidates is linked to their presumed unwillingness to speak openly about the economic crisis, and hopes of finding a candidate equipped to solve the situation are extended.
