Yes, fewer expensive things to do, fewer events to attend, fewer shopping opportunities, but this means, less spending on frivolities.
Smaller incomes, but also cheaper living expenses.
Less competition to purchase local real estate.
Less expensive labor and benefits costs.
Easier to become involved in the local politics and policymaking which may affect your business or income.
Smaller market for any product or service, but also, less competition to capture local market share.
With the internet, we are still able to access the universe of products and services, when needed.
