All I hear about is "the recession/depression" , the world has fallen apart, toxic debt. Thats in the UK/Europe Germany,Italy and France) as well as the USA... But How has it affected you , right now? For me and the Mrs - must say no change at all . Prices for the staples seem OK , some up , some down but the monthly shop is the same Ish. Electric/gas/water - gone up a bit but in place with the rest , Ok (or NOT?) wages and the increase this year has been cut for many ( not me at all I must say ) or the Army for that matter . So , how has this Global slow down really affected posters? I know some people won't be buying a new plasma 52 incher or the new shooter but in real terms , has it really made you stop bying anything? Just wondering who it is really affecting , not me or any one I know .Not yet anyway.
