The Dow dipped drastically on Monday, prompting Canada's candidates to finally address economic policy issues.
Stephen Harper acknowledged the problem but pointed to positive signs.
Justin Trudeau says he wants more "investments" in the economy, even though he's been criticizing Harper for running deficits.
Thomas Mulcair vowed that if elected, his NDP government's "first budget will be a balanced budget," and he wants the whole economy to be "balanced."
He thinks the Tories rely too much on energy and resources, but when it comes to lost manufacturing jobs, that's due in large part to Liberal Kathleen Wynne's actions in Ontario -- and that "brain trust" is now advising Trudeau.

I think some of them will leave you concerned about how an NDP federal government will impact our economy.
