Value rules

You don’t have to be a futurist to foresee that in the coming new economy just about everyone in the private sector, from consumers to financiers, will be looking to get the most they can for their dollars. You can sum the situation up in two words: “value rules.”

Getting the most out of their hard-earned dollars is nothing new for Iwanna readers. Bargain hunters in the Carolinas have shared value with us for over 30 years — starting in Asheville, but also in Hickory, the far West mountains, Greenville and now Spartanburg.

“Value rules” has a familiar, old ring in the Blue Ridge. Maybe everything old does become new again.

This change in economic attitudes could mark a shift in America’s very way of life. Look at the Great Depression: It was a scarring experience that taught a generation to practice such acts of thrift as washing out plastic bags, to the puzzlement of their baby boomer kids. “The era of ‘bling’ is coming to a close.”
