Has America's lack of knowing

Has America's lack of knowing the truth actually slowed down the rate of economic decay in America? It seems like people were much more privy about the need to pinch every penny in the great depression. Could it be that if everybody knew the truth about the sad state of our economy that at this point it would hurl us quicker off the "cliff"?

Consumer confidence is perpetuated by ignorance to a degree. Though I applaud this news cast, I have to also remain weary and wonder if telling the truth would be allowed should it cause the right amount of panic...or to test the waters of public opinion.

Just a thought.
