Well when the economy is based on creating money out of thin air via debt/lending and the debt/lending stops..... the ponzi scheme has to retract !

I found this to be interesting. Even the banks are taking pro-active measures.

"For the first time in 15 years, banks across the United States are closing branches faster than they are opening them, eliminating locations in Massachusetts, other parts of New England, and the rest of the country."http://articles.boston.com/2011-07-05/business/29739869_1_half-dozen-branches-bank-branches-branch-closings
I'll bet a lot of this has to do with the large number of mergers we have seen. When a bank is unstable but too large for the FDIC to bail it out they try to merge it with a larger bank. After the merger banks end up with duplicate branches in some areas.

Well, as there are more bank branches than there are latte stands and teriyaki joints during a bad economy, this ought to be happening.
