We don’t need to tell you that things are tough all over. The glut of troubling news stories, vacancy signs, going-out-of-business sales and unemployment claims tell the tale of our economy pretty clearly.

What’s less clear is what can be done to weather the storm. That’s the impetus for the CN&R’s Recession Survival Guide. Akin to books with wilderness tips, it’s a set of suggestions and resources—skills and tools, if you will—to help our readers through this dire economic climate.
