    Oh well, at least the price increases that these ukemakers have been doing are reasonable, at maybe about 10%. Compare that to Fender, which went ahead with 25% across the board price increases earlier this year. And besides, the economy is starting to recover, so we shall all have money for new ukes soon!

    Recover? Not here. It is worse this year than last year.

    Well, unfortunately, when economists say recover, they're talking about metrics that usually aren't felt by the common person. Thus the term "jobless recovery" as employment probably isn't going to improve for a while, even if there is broader economic recovery. So I guess that was misleading...economic stabilization/recovery is happening, but we might not see the effects in terms of more ukes in living rooms for a while.
