Selling Out : Are We Victims of Economic Over Exposure?

Too Much Money Talk. A recent article in the Ukrainian Newsweek magazine – "Vlast Deneg" – suggests that our global financial crisis has moved away from being an economic issue towards a brand issue, which they feel can actually sell anything.
