Recently the AJC profiled local residents who have found a profitable niche in this bad economy. They’ve found a way to make money by cleaning foreclosed homes and vacant office buildings, hosting gold parties for people to sell their jewelry and by advising companies going through bankruptcies or other financial troubles. And as the economy continues to sink, their profits are rising.
Do you feel these people are vultures preying upon desperate victims of the sagging economy or are they just savvy entrepreneurs with a will to survive? Would you feel comfortable making money off individuals and companies who have been hurt by the economy?
