Local Economy Steps Down To Spend More Time With Family

richmond

The embattled Richmond economy said today that it would resign from its position effective immediately, citing the need to spend more time with its family.

“As much as I would like to stay, I’ve got a duty to give some time to my children and wife,” said the struggling economy, which in recent weeks has been embroiled in a series of high-profile bankrupties, severe net losses and mergers that have cost the region thousands of jobs.  “Now is that time.” 

For years, the Richmond economy positioned itself as a highly-diversified economy that could recession-proof itself across many industry sectors – retail, banking and manufacturing, for example. That strategy worked well, many economists contend, until the highly-diversified economy that could recession-proof itself across many industry sectors – retail, banking and manufacturing, for example – turned out to not be recession-proof, whatsoever. 

The economy also has two young daughters and a son about to enter kindergarten, the economy noted.

Local experts expressed dismay over the economy’s rather abrupt departure.

“When you consider the economy as a whole, Richmond is simply in one of the downturns that you’d expect in a recession, and of course, the economy would have eventually bounced back and gotten better,” said VCU economics professor Thomas P. Meyers. 

“But he’s got kids, so what are you gonna do?”
