    Well it surely has got me thinking. Now I certainly don't think that BIG firms are as honest as they pretend to be. Some of them are downright evil. Also with the economic forecast going into 2012 I would make sure to save some on the side since the effects of the ongoing economic crisis, combined with the one in 2009 are certain to change spending permanently. It's never going to be the same.

    I think of OWS as a voice highlighting some of the reasons of why it happened.

    I would say support small business/ mom pop shops. It's hard at times to do that but whenever I get an opportunity I spend my money at those places instead of big orgs.

    Christmas shopping is much more tight this year focusing more on things we actually need and less fancy stuff.
