The global financial crisis has meant that many of us (Dominicans) have had to watch the pennies and cents. We are not spending money like we used to, and buying that extra pair of shoes or must-have gadget takes a lot more consideration – well for some of us. But is this a bad thing?
Is having less money changing our small island values and our behaviour? Are we becoming less materialistic and is it possible that this financial crisis could actually be good for us?
But has these hard times made you look at what you value and have you changed your spending habit as a result? Do you think that there could be some positives to be taken from the crisis?

Yes, I think you make a good point about our values maybe benefiting from tightening our belts. Maybe we can put more focus on what is really important, instead of just having more “things”.
