Are you worried?

Jim Cramer penned a column in Real Money early Thursday morning.

Following the 800 point decline in the Dow at market close Wednesday evening, and the brief inversion of the yield curve early Wednesday, should investors start worrying about a recession on the horizon?

Cramer wrote, "I have resisted discussion of how close we are to a recession because I focus on employment growth, customer spending, and money demand. All of these are incredibly positive. While we know that employment numbers are a rearview mirror, there has been no let-up at all in hiring and I still think that shortage of workers is a bigger issue in this country than excess workers. In most states, it is still hard to find people to put to work."

So, is investor negativity more dangerous than a market catalyst?
