so they say!The feel good factor seems to be fairly contagious at the moment we now have a drop in the bake bean index!. Give it a bit of time, for the nights to draw in and some freezing mornings. Will that be the reality check required to make people realise that this recession or as one well known commentator insists on calling it a depression is not over. I notice banks continue to going belly up in the USA, this is just not reported on in the UK for some reason. Does it have a bearing? yes it does. Anything the USA does financially has to be considered in the context of how it may impact the UK economy.The informed wisdom from the USA is self storage performs better in a down turn. With the self storage industry still growing to maturity in the UK and the impact new local competition has, I find it a little difficult to tell at the moment.
