With all the news of the automaker bailout, yesterday the local tv news decided to ask area dealers how they are doing.

The answer was:
A couple months ago things were slow. Not really ever too bad, but slow. The last month however has been good. And as gas prices have approached $2.00 during the last couple of weeks, they are now busy and sales are brisk. People are looking and buying.

One manager stated, that for them, at least, the economy seems to have already turned.


Can it be that the national media (who make their money on doom, disasters, and panic), are behind the curve (as usual)?

We have the same problem in the UK too...

If it is said often enough, it will happen - and the world wide media just wont stop going on about it!
I work front line in the Tourist Industry in the UK and I can honestly say that we too are brisk.
If the media was to 'Shut Up!' things could settle down and people would be able to find their way back to quiet near normal living.

Workers with good jobs and excellent credit scores see this as a great buying opportunity. The recovery will begin as job security increases and banks begin to move more money to individuals with good credit scores at acceptable rates.

I do not mean giving mortgages to people based on nothing but a desire to purchase which put us in the economic position we are in today.
