The countercyclical asset, a continuing series

by on February 2, 2009 at 8:19 am in Current Affairs | Permalink

Shoe cobblers:

Mr. McFarland, a third-generation cobbler, is riding a shoe-repair
boom. Since mid-November, he has been juggling roughly 275 repair jobs
a week — about 50% more than usual. "I'm so busy right now it's
unbelievable," he says.

Retail sales for shoes are down 3.2%.

Loyal MR reader Michael Tofias suggests that perhaps The Snuggie is a countercyclical asset as well.

Yup. And here in Spain a domestic appliance repairer says he is about 50% busier than usual. The world is marching in step even if we have holes in our shoes.

Let me give you an example a cyclical asset: Tax cheaters. As shown by Tim Geithner and Tom Dashle and who knows how many other politicians, in booming times it’s hard to fill tax forms properly. Maybe you can credit Obama with popping this bubble.

Personally I am waiting for the small electronics repair shop to make a comeback. Not one within 50 miles of where I live in N Cal. Diversity confirms my faith that this is a growing business opportunity for now at least.

Wonderful example that I can narrate in the class room-yet one doubt-cobblers operate in which sector of the US economy?Organised or informal? Does there exists an informal sector in the US? So there is no vertical upward occupational mobility among American cobblers ever since Great Depression?

At first I thought you told Google to call the library, and it did, and that blew my mind.

Then I realized that you actually called the library, and my mind became unblown.

I’ll get back to work…
If you ask my opinion about this topic I really like. Thank you for sharing your friends. Hope to see you another day.

I am surprised about the shoes I have to say.
I am familiar with counter-cyclical assets or rather movement against market or economic cycle, just not sure why the shoemaker is making higher profits.

However if I tweet about the issue then I let my followers know about my frustration, which is bad press and leads to attention and service from the company that I am complaining about. But shouldn’t I have gotten that in the first place? Why do I need to complain twice to get help and why do I need to use a specific social network? What if I have 100,000 followers? Do I get better support than if I have 100?
