FuckedCompany 2.0

Back in the days of the dot-com bubble and bust, there was a great site, FuckedCompany, run by Pud, that allowed employees to send in anonymous tips about which hot tech companies were going to lay off people next or go belly up. It was filled with juicy insider stories etc. and became the kind of hot insider website where people would go looking for shorting tips and just plain gossip.

With Yahoo handing out a managers guide to laying people off (hot tip: don't say "I'll probably be next"), looks like we're ready for a second generation FuckedCompany, this time about the whole economy. Call it FuckedEconomy.
