Right, but the real reasons as to why have been glossed over so hard by the media, I doubt anyone can really she through the shellac to the actual cause.
The global economy is truly in a recession right now. People simply cannot afford luxury stuff like PCs. I get so many comments from other parents locally, and they all say the same thing:
"How can you afford to have four kids?"
The house I live in now, 6 years ago would have cost $175k. Today, it's appraised at $475k.
If you want to buy a house here in Canada, you need a 15% down payment. For $475k, that's nearly $75k.
I bought my first house nearly 15 years ago with $4k in cash in my pocket.
That inflation is killer, and I live in the one country that apparently wasn't too affected by the recent global economic problems. I say that's BS, because if we haven't been affected, and this is going on, I cannot imagine how bad it is elsewhere.
