Now I say all this as someone who is not an economist, however I have been talking to a number of small businessmen lately. It all started with a conversation between me and an auto dealer. He noted that car dealers are in a recession of sorts. There is an oversupply of cars on the market, people took advantage of sales from a while back, and now people are not buying as many cars. Car dealers are starting to cut back on orders and are increasing their focus on service instead of sales.
