What Recession?

Taiwan's economy shrank by slightly more than 10% last quarter. However, you wouldn't notice the downturn if you went to 鼎泰豐 for a meal. There is still a line outside with people waiting to get in. The restaurant is almost recession-proof. The good news is the food is still as good as ever.

  1. Same in Madrid (Spain is one of the countries hit the most here in Europe). But just go to the Diego bar, where a delicious drink costs around 10 EUR, and see how crowded it is. A Kurdish friend of mine, who earlier on in his life experienced real poverty, remarked that things cannot be all that bad in the end.
