Are you seeing signs of people going in survival mode? I am. If people (in the US) are given money as stimulus, will they spend it? I doubt it. The days of women my age standing in line to buy Beanie Babies is gone, it is done like dinner.
We are no longer driving as much and if some of these states (Virginia, Oregon and there are probably others) decide to implement the so-called driving tax we are sure to drive even less.
I am also noticing people begging to be paid in cash, and other people accommodating as them as they understand if they don’t the hair salon is liable to go out of business.
As these business close (and they are closing). less tax revenue will be generated and we have less and less choice where we can go to get what. We also have less choice of where we can work.
For some, these facts are already in their face but I think everyone knows this stuff on some level.
Do you see people making significant changes in how they live and work? Specifically, what are you seeing?
