Yea! A Recession!


I've become curious if there is a significant segment of the population that really enjoys a recession. And I'm not talking about how there's a silver lining on the cloud, but actually prefers the recession to a growing economy.

Food costs less. Gas costs less. Cars cost less. TVs costs less.

If you're in a relatively stable line of work (e.g. healthcare), I've got to think this is the best environment to be living in, all things selfishly considered.

I read a good article not long ago that explained that an economic crisis is the absolute only thing that can make a noticeable improvement in the environment.
