Americans Adapt To The 'new Normal'

Recommended Posts

ABC News is running a feature on the 'new norma' in the US re the new depression. It is a long article but well worth a read and the related articles are fascinating also.

They talk about the US housing problem but rehash the story posted on here recently about the NY Times writer who got himself into trouble re house buying.

Start at the home page as there are multiple links to the numerous articles.

The worst financial crisis since the Great Depression and the ensuing recession have forced Americans to change their lives in ways large and small. It's a world of "new normals," with more belt-tightening, less income and, in many cases, a newfound gratitude for the most basic human comforts: family, home and health.

ABCNews.com asked readers to tell us how they're adapting to today's economic conditions and they didn't hold back. Here's a selection of some of their responses.

Hardship has a way of refocussing peoples attentions. In this case they dont have the means anymore to fill their lives with pointless, material bs so they focus on what they do have. Health, family etc. Just hope their appreciation of these things does not wane if they get the cash tap turned back on.
