A Roadside Recession Lesson
NEAR ANDERSON, Ind.--Michael and I had seen hundreds of billboards about foreclosures and job loss and depression, and then we saw this one: "Interesting fact about recessions…they end."
It wasn't selling anything. Turns out the "Recession 101" messages are on display across the country courtesy of an anonymous donor who wants to help the nation collectively "take a deep breath," according to the Outdoor Advertising Association of America's website about the campaign.
Other Recession 101 messages say: "Nobody can repossess your future;" "Self-worth beats net worth;" "Stop obsessing about the economy, you’re scaring the children;" "It's a test not a final; Chill (Hysteria feeds recessions)."
