First and foremost our thoughts should not be about products, businesses etc....IT should be about them poor people that are suffering more then we will ever know. This is just another reason our world has gone to shambles. Ok so we may not have brand spanking new cars or clothes or any other item that normally was manufactured in Japan but you know what make do with what you have for many have nothing.

Hey I have a great idea..Mr Oil man..you should really raise the oil prices over there..There will be so much money pouring into that country. You could really put the screws to the down and out people, or did u already figure out how to get your grubby little hands on it.

Of course concerns are on the people. And of course, there are a lot of greedy people who are just worried about how this is going to affect their wallets. This does not mean that there shouldn't be a cause for concern of how this will affect businesses. Between this and the oil crisis, this could have a huge impact on our economy when we've just barely recovered from the last recession. This is bigger than not having the finest clothes and cars. This could mean higher unemployment rates, inflation, people neglecting to seek medical attention when necessary, and so on. Don't pretend that this is so minor that we might all have to shop at the thrift store. Of course anyone with a heart's main concern is on those poor people in Japan. That doesn't mean we should not think about the impact that could result in the long-run. It would be irresponsible of us not to consider this.
