Recession Inventions: Success Stories in Bad Times

The Best Recession Products

Nothing stirs American ingenuity like a bad economy.  More than half of the companies on this year’s Fortune 500 list were founded during a recession or bear market. The next breakthrough business could be yours. All you need is a good product. Unfortunately, as of the middle of this year, filings at the patents office had actually fallen by 2% from the previous year. Hopefully these success stories from our country’s past will inspire all you inventors and entrepreneurs out there to keep pushing your product ideas. Photo Credit: lookr Join MainStreet on Facebook!
