At least the goodwill writedowns in semiconductor companies represent tangible assets. With financial institutions, as the asset toxicity spreads from subprime to Alt-A to prime mortgages, it seems like there will be no end to writedowns. And I'm really worried that in both the financial and the tangible-asset business world, we are entering a spiral that just keeps going down and down. Yikes!
