In past downturns, the US was still on top of the world. That's not true anymore, so the pendulum does not have a place to swing back to like it did in the past. Our time is over. The question is now how are we going to deal with that as a nation.
On a personal level, the question I keep turning over is how am I as a merchant going to survive this long slide downward in our economy? I keep thinking about things like trying to get more international customers, working on creating content, writing, creating services I didn't offer before. I sure would be interested in hearing other folks' strategies, if they have them.
