There’s no doubt about it: The economic recession that’s raging across the United States
courtesy of an absurd number of layoffs, massive quantities of homeowners defaulting on their
mortgages, an inflation rate that far overpowers current adjustments to incomes and the resulting
decrease in consumer spending has hit everyone hard. As Americans struggle to pay their bills
and put enough away to ensure their retirement, companies from coast to coast are taking a major
hit in profits.
