You may not be surprised to learn that many lawyers are doing just fine in this recession, thank you. But they're not alone. In a wide variety of industries, businesses that emphasize thrift are thriving. In travel, for instance, hostel bookings are way up, while discounters such as Family Dollar are seeing growth in the retail sector. As for entertainment, casinos and concert venues may be hurting, but video games are selling strongly as consumers look to score more hours of amusement for every dollar they spend.
