The feeling of disengagement from the whole global economic situation and any related news. A refusal to feel any emotion about the economic downturn, typically brought about by excessive media bombardment and dullards inventing new terminology to describe circumstances that are not new to mankind (e.g. 'credit crunch'). Some genuine economic-psychology experts suggest this mental malaise is the apporiate and normal response to a recession beyond the initial exciting roller coaster downward dip of the economic curve. Whatever - it's all boring economic talk and there's a repeated episode of CSI I have only watched once before so I'm quite excited about that and cannot spare the mental energy to contemplate anything fiscal.
Spectacle wearing dull dude: "I'm concerned about what this means for mortgage rates in the longer term."
Pretend normal person: "Mmmm me too - it is a worry."
Recessionapathetic dude: "ehh? what's that? sorry I was day dreaming about putting a cat in a wheelie bin"
Spectacle guy: "Your recessionapathy appalls me"
