Today is Cyber Monday and as online retailers vie for the attention of holiday shoppers, many experts are wondering what this will mean for the health of the economy. Will consumers buy now or sit this holiday season out, waiting until better economic times? But there are millions of people around the world for whom this is not a concern.
