What Would Happen With No Google?

While I don’t think the world would come to an end if Google went down for a week or so, I do think the world has become pretty damn dependent on Google. With that said, is it as bad as people are making it seem?

One wonders: If Google were to go down (or become essentially unusable -- same thing) for, say, 72 hours or more, how disruptive would it be to the economy? Would online retailers see a slowdown in business? Would job-seekers remain out of work longer? Would the productivity of information workers (who supposedly spend a couple hours per day doing online searches) be seriously affected?
