As you walk down the street or go shopping in a mall, look around you and think:
For each 16 people you see, more than 1 of them is now unemployed. This number does not include those who gave up on looking for a job.
As time moves forward, a greater and greater percentage of the population:
-Runs out of unemployment benefits. --Becomes dependent on relatives for survival.
-Knows another person who is unemployed.
-Recognizes the futility of investing in stocks that depend on a strong economy and high employment.
If you then investigate further, you will find: -Long lines at Aldi grocery stores where food prices are about 30% lower than the better known chains. -Long lines at Save-A-Lot grocery stores where food prices are about 27% lower than the better known chains. -Shorter lines at the higher cost stores. -Shorter lines at discretionary spending stores like Circuit City and the like.
