Quoted from PanzerFreak:
Except the economy is in way better shape then it was in 08-09. The impact to the economy hasn't been building for years unlike in 08-09. We have record unemployment and just 2 weeks ago another great jobs report came out.
Agreed. Panic selling is exactly the wrong thing to do. If everyone will just remain calm, we can weather this and come out well. Economy is in better shape and judging by the grocery store selfs, retail is doing the best ever, because of all the panic buying.
Pinball will continue to do fine. It has been going all these years through all the economic ups and downs. If you hold a machine currently, it has value now and into the future. It is an age old pass time that many continue to enjoy. Pricing may have to be adjusted somewhat however, to attract NIB buyers.
