Scary figure of the week

Here are some scary numbers, courtesy of David Rosenberg, economist at Merrill Lynch:

Households have lost over $7 trillion in terms of net worth in the year ending 3Q, and it looks like this wealth destruction will top $10 trillion when the 4Q Fed flow­of-funds data come out (that already exceeds the entire $4 trillion loss during the tech wreck).
