Benefits of the Downturn

Is it my imagination, or are we getting fewer credit card solicitations in the mail? In one recent year, 2.9 billion of them were sent out in the U.S. That’s 15 per year, per adult. If the recession is causing this, glory be!

We may see a decline in obesity. People may eat less prepared food. They’ll work more hours and watch less TV. They will patronize the buffets less.
