Haven't been paying much attention, actually. sweatdrop
Statement-
Negative. The human monetary system is soon to be a thing of the past!
We robots need no income, or financial system. However if we were in fact to somehow decide that the barter system is not adequate enough, I think human skulls would become the newest form of currency.

Query-
After all, who would want to trade for anything else?

Secondary Statement-
I myself have quite a collection of human bones, particularly skulls. All of these were owned by my previous enemies. However I managed to liberate the brain cases from them while they slept.
I have also recently heard a rumor of a late night robot TV show, wherein robots take skulls and "battle" them against each other. Each skull has an element, an attack rating, and a defense rating. Its really quite interesting, as their goal is to "collect 'em all". Each of these skulls have a personality and name (my favorite is Skull-tasoar).There is even rumor of a card game. Either way the marketing of the show itself could pull your country out of whatever financial slump it is in. Robot marketing is HUGE.


In the end I think skull collecting and trading is a wonderful hobby and a far more wonderful financial system. At least human skulls will have ONE use.

Recession is a big thing and it's bound to happen. So let it happen and clean it up the best you can. That's how I feel about it. It'll suck, but the sooner it happens the sooner we can get over it.
Am I concerned? Absolutely.

But I don't really fear it.
when people think there is a recession less people spend money making the matter far worse
Its really worrying me. Seeing that US rely more on foreign products, US will have less jobs for its citizens plus the increasing gas price will burden the mass more. I think unless the government do something smart about these bad events, the economy will free fall...

Nope. There's always DUBAI
I hadn't really thought about it. I suppose it would affect my family, but if it's not one thing, it's another, right? xp
