I've heard that folks who accumulate wealth tend to see opportunities others don't. For instance, where others see an economic downturn -- or worse, as it seems now, they may see opportunity.

In what ways can one profit while the financial norms crumble around us?

My thoughts are to focus on what people need, e.g., what will people have to buy, no matter if they've lost their job or how bad things are? Then again, maybe focusing on needs is OK -- people want pleasure in their lives regardless of how the economy might be doing. Perhaps the answer lies in getting them something cheaper than before, even if they just want it but don't need it.

What are your thoughts, future billionaires?
