Next Trouble Spot - Underfunded Pension Funds...

The City of Dallas Workers have lost 33% of their fund value this year. This means their pension fund is underfunded

Now think about the impact on a MUCH bigger scale. All of a sudden tons of Fortune 500 companies will have underfunded pensions as well. This will drag down earnings growth, hinder job growth or exacerbate the downturn/need for cost savings.
