Their answer: BOOTLEGGERS.
Since it was prohibition, bootleggers, like any other black market trade, were one business that was making money even during the Great Depression.
Now, I'm not starting this thread to discuss 'illegal trade'
I beg the question, "What business model do YOU think will thrive in this economy we are in right now?"
Here are some of the ones I've come up with, let's see who can add what to the list...
#1. Thrift Stores
#2. Consignment Shops
#3. ANY type of "Rent To Own Business" from housing right down to furntiure and electronics.
#4. Credit Repair
#6. Business Training Opportunities
#7. Child Care Services.
Who has more ideas to add to the list.. and KEEP IT LEGAL.
