Winners in a Slow Economy

What can you say about the food sold at the 99¢ store? They got my 99¢, I got some food that tastes different, and the big guys with the obnoxious website did not get my $3.99. These are the same guys voraciously taking over the packaged organic food industry.

From Richard’s Forewards and elsewhere:

  • Tom Engelhardt lives in my neighborhood!! I’ve been observing these same buildings lie fallow since 2007, also hoping the influx of rich fresh blood would also help the Ding Dong Lounge.
  • Dean Baker pessimistic that Timmeh’s plan will help anyone outside the banking industry.
  • Via Atrios, Yves at Naked Capitalism: “Given the lack of any mention of a special resolution regime, or intent to develop one, the point of this bill is NOT, appearances to the contrary, to be able to put more firms into receivership. It is to get broader authority to bail them out.”
  • AIG’s ace in the hole?

One thought on “Winners in a Slow Economy”

  1. There is a 99 cent store in my neighborhood, too. They come complete with recession special peanut butter (inclusive of the jelly swirls) and a mercenary out front who will beat your ass if you try to pull an outer-borough Winona.

    Overall, it is infinitely preferable to the pretensions of sushi platters at Whole Foods.
