On the recession that began during the Bush administration, something has been conveniently overlooked: It's not the first recession the United States has ever had to deal with, nor is it the worst.
There are always ups and downs. Certainly there are exceptional periods, such as the Great Depression or the recession of the seventies, which began under the Carter administration, but those exceptional periods are only exceptional by degree, rather than by nature. By this we simply mean that the economy is constantly, constantly in a state of slumps and rebounds and spikes and sags and jumps. While you can generally define any given decade as having been either good or bad for the economy, the fact remains that it's never truly just one or the other.
Our point here is this: There's always another recession on the horizon. Bearing that in mind, the advice we attempt to put across in the text you're about to read is not exclusive to this recession. Rather, one should always know how to survive, and how to thrive, in a bad economy. This recession will end, sooner or later, but it won't be the last. Learn from these tough times, and store that knowledge away until the next time the dollar starts losing value.
