They say the recession is over. Is it?

I’ve definitely seen a pick up in spending in the store and I think people are less careful with their disposable income, and there seems to be a general feeling of optimism. We’re up in our sales.

No. Not even close. I think it will take a new president and another six years.

It’s got two more years to go at least. I’m in the business of commercial real estate and I dont see anything happening. We have so many vacancies, there’s absolutely no money.

I think that people want to believe it’s over so they’re spending but it’s not really over. I think people are going to drive themselves further into debt.

They keep saying that there’s no inflation but money isn’t worth what it used to be. You cannot buy or live on what you did before. I think it’s inflation and recession.
