Economic Snapshot: Reasons to Be Wild About Recession


Our unscientific poll.


Times are tough, but that only makes the small victories that much sweeter.

In lieu of platitudes aimed at driving home the importance of staying optimistic, Minyanville offers something no other financial infotainment website has: Good reasons to be wild about this brutal, unforgiving and glorious recession.

Reasons to Be Wild About Recession

Tough times foster the type of spending habits you're supposed to have.

Reduced wait times when fueling up the old Gulfstream.
Email spam alerting you to the fact that Britney Spears wants to have sex with you: Still a problem.

Old-fashioned credit card solicitations: Noticeably reduced.

Everyone's too busy worrying to remember how much they dislike you.

Minyanville's traffic is up. Way up.
Finally, the economic climate matches your hairline.

Plastic liquor bottles are so much lighter than glass.
Everything's negotiable. Next time you're at Starbucks, turn the place into a Cairo market. Get them to knock off the tax, or throw in a free latte for your date.
