Has the current economic slowdown affected you in any way? I am already reviewing my financial commitments and am pruning them down. What about you? Cheers! Ram

Nope, it hasn't affected me in absolutely any way. But it's never to early to manage our finances better and better.

It's good to hear. Recent economic activities in India have at least started a relative turnaround here... Cheers! Ram

I didn't mean to say the effects of the recession didn't reach my country. There are factories shutting down or workers taking a forced technical vacation because the factories don't have enough orders anymore. But, for now, the crisis hasn't affected ME, as an individual, at all.

Well, it doesn't affect my work, I'm lucky that my company doesn't have any retrenchment going on, also our pay is not affected. But the shares I invested in stock market are lost. I've lost quite some money in the stock market.

only probably in the supermarket and petrol for the car where I have had to be more careful, I stay home a lot more these days, I think I am more scared for the future than what is happening at the moment, where is it all going to end...

Though the funniest part of all this is that Petrol prices are going down like crazy!! :) Yet, the benefits of this is taking long to reach the public at large... Cheers! Ram
