Swapping Our Way to a New Life in the Conserver Economy

Summary: 

More and more it looks like the economy won't be snapping back soon to the good old go-go days; unemployment, the housing market, and consumer spending are expected to take years to recover.

Jeff Bennett, CEO at Swap.com, is helping to make this happen.
