The human cost of the credit crunch

The Beeb website has some interesting personal stories on it from the frontline of the credit. Daniel (not his real name) who works for an investment bank explains just how painful it is out there –
“As I approached my desk I did not even say the usual "Good Morning" or "How was your weekend?"… People are buying lunch for £5 in the cafeteria rather then spending £20 on some Sushi or Dim Sum outside. People now have breakfast at home or even bring a packed lunch. The days of the one hour lunch are well and truly over.”

Packed lunches instead of sushi? And they say people had it hard in the 1930s.
