Petaluma Recession Visions…October 2009

Nationally, the “Great Recession” has been generating job losses, foreclosures, stalled economic indicators, etc.

Petaluma’s neighborhoods, of course, are not immune as these photos demonstrate.

  1. Jungle Guy, Wayne, points out that real, median income has gone down from $53k to $51k approx. This means a reduction in income to 2000 rates – a ten year loss of income! Still, being an optimist, I feel we are in the midst of a shift to better things – healthy, beautiful LOCAL LIVE food instead of industrial food. Hard choice! I like Trader Joe’s instant dinners – but shifting to roasted veggies and soon that we grow ourselves on our 2.3 acres on Skillman.

  2. Sorry it took so long for me to reply. Been a little hectic lately. I agree that we are “in the midst of a shift” or, as some would have it, reaching for a “new” normal. Transitions are always painful. At the risk of sounding pompous, this one will be a test of our individual, as well as our national character.
