The easiest answer is the economy....economy is always a convinient scape goat....but I'd say the main reason would be cultural (which is in part a result of the economy) , the mindset is not the same anymore, on the whole or culture has become alot more "static", people would rather stay in an uncomfortable situation than venture into the unknown.
