The economy has been pretty bad and we all know the affect it has had on Wall Street and Main Street.
But what about the back-alleys?
The New York Post has an interesting article about that group of entrepreneurs who say that they will have adjust their businesses because of bad economic times -- loan sharks.
Some now want collateral while others are adjusting their staggering interest rates. How does $200 a week interest on a $500 loan sound?
"Wall Street should take a lesson from me, I never lend what I can't afford to lose - and I lose very little," one loan shark told the paper.
