Times are a Changing

MSN.com featured a great article today about how Americans are changing the way they shop. The article highlighted changes in fundamental American life that will lead to some interesting trends in the future. Very englightening. Check it out and let me know what you think.

It is so interesting to read the commentary about recent shopping trends and changes in the U.S. I guess what is so strange to me is that when I'm out and about everything seems so normal - - on my way to class I see lots of people sipping starbucks lattes, 70-80% of people in my classes purchase drinks and food from nearby restaurants daily and bring them in to eat... I don't go shopping very often myself (and when I do I prefer the internet) but I've gone out for gifts quite a bit recently and the stores seem busy... But then the news is brimming with plummeting stock portfolios and stories about changing shopping habits. I have no clue what to make of it all! Seems like a disconnect. ?
