Just like the home mortgages crisis greedey retailers have lived and proffited off of the we have to have it now economy for years. Sneakers $250, Jeans $100 New Cellphone & I-Pod every 3 month,$7 cup of coffee. Just like the mortgage holders they now face a public that has to stop and think. Value has come back into the picture for the first time in a long time. With people now having to think about what they spend, no more put it out at any price someone will buy it.
