Are jobless statistics missing
23 Mar 10
Getting the US and UK’s unemployed back to work will take some time, but business investment is picking up strongly and it won’t be long before recruitment starts. Meanwhile, we believe there is a surge in SOHO start-ups, just as happened in 2001. But where are SOHO’s going for office equipment and supplies? In 2001, it was Staples, this time there is growing evidence that massmarketers like Wal-Mart, Costco, Best Buy, Amazon and Tesco are taking an increasing share.
