I was busy money blogging two years ago, as well. In August 2004, I informed my readers about the new nickel design.

Guess what! I was blogging here in 2003, as well. I wrote about the trend towards longer auto loans and predicted a crash in real estate. I also noted that millionaires were falling on hard times. Poor, poor millionaires.

I hope you enjoyed this look back in Consumerism Commentary history. Stay tuned next week for more.
