There have been a lot of talk but the financial crisis being over and that worldwide recovery is just around the corner. Personally I don’t buy it, and it seems that I’m not the only one.
The reason I say this is because a pawnshop has just been opened along Orchard Road. Orchard Rd is the premier shopping belt in Singapore, a place where tourists and rich Singaporeans go and spend money. Jewellery company Aspial, decided to open the shop as it feels ‘there is business potential in the industry’.
Yup, sound like a ringing endorsement of the economy to me!
