Successful Change Means Survival
Do you have any change?
Back in the Great Depression that phrase had great significance. With unemployment at 20 percent and higher, a few cents meant the difference between eating that night or going hungry.
The people that you meet today who lived through the Depression can you tell you all about that. They seem permanently affected by that time period; scarred in some way. They are more conscious of waste, less likely to be extravagant and often puzzled when the younger generation throws money around. They seem to keep cars longer and show more interest in maintaining what is old rather than building something new. Depression-era people were actually changed personally by the width and breadth of the downturn.
