Chris Farrell wonders if we're talking ourselves into recession

If you didn't catch his blog post, Marketplace economics correspondent Chris Farrell muses the possibility we're talking ourselves into recession. One statement jumped out at me:

"Think about it. How many dinner table and workplace discussions have you had about the weakening economy, the foreclosed home, the credit-card induced bankruptcy, the corporate downsizing? During those conversations, how many upbeat tales have you offered up?"

Is this about the media or about ourselves? Is it possible we could talk ourselves into prosperity? Comment on Chris' blog to share your experiences and opinion on the topic.
