    people's incomes shrank they needed cheaper goods to compensate for their money not going as far as it once did.  I can honestly say that the quality of many goods today is much more inferior than it was thirty years ago.  I still have things that are old, but work better than goods made today.

    It all began with the outlet stores and now we are all shopping at the dollar store just twenty years later.
