This is the reading trends of my Google Reader. As you can see I haven’t been reading much lately. But January is usually a very bad month for web traffic. Sales are low. Additionally, everyone is worrying about the upcoming recession, feds acting on it and so on and so forth. So people post a lot less, too.
This, however, brings up one important aspect. With pessimistic outlook on economy and less and less disposable money – will Americans start more businesses or less? Would they sit on the money waiting to spend – or take a risk of investing in hot areas while others wait and loose? Hard to say at this point as panic is still upon us and stock market.
