40,800,000 Americans on Food Stamps. The number roughly corresponds with the entire population of the following states and the nations capital:
Everyone in those states theoretically is on food stamps. That’s the new reality people. We have literally 1/2 the nation on food stamps in terms of number of states.
Let that settle in. 1/2 the number of states in the entire country, if you add their population up roughly equals the number of people on food stamps. I don’t see how an ad agency can advertise to people with no money.
This is a massive problem, it’s something that has been unheard of in recent times, only mirrored by the great depression in terms of severity. So go ahead and continue to feel that things are getting better, when in reality things are getting worse, much worse.
I fully expect a severe double dip recession unless someone comes up with a big bubble. Until that time there continues to be less need for work as less and less people are making ends meet and have any disposable income to use to purchase services and goods.
Truly, enjoy the new reality.
