When times are bad, these jobs are good

First we have subprime crisis. Then we have high crude oil price. Now even the food prices have skyrocketed. Forbes published a list of jobs that are supposed to have great potential during this bad time. They are:

Bankruptcy and foreclosure lawyer

Pawn shops

Farm equipment auctioneers

Securities and commodities sales agents

Risk management and reputation consultants

Job recruiters or headhunters

Debt collectors

Recovery agent

I believe education for adults also have great potential as we seek to ‘upgrade’ our skills. Restaurants which serve affordable food should also be recession-proof.

Anyone interested in opening a pawn shop? I want to invest.

    I think the pawn shop operators are smart enough not to accept junks...
