We have lived through some tuff times but this time it will more than likely force us to close. The credit crunch is killing the consumer and making them feel poorer than they are. we went from spending 6% more than we made to saving 4%, that 10% has decimated the retail sector and after January we will see many Out of Business signs.

He is of the opinion that weak credit demand born of low confidence, and not weak supply, is the reason for the dearth of lending to small enterprises.
