A depressing quote from King Lear will do us all good I thought.

What we are going through right now has a certain epic quality to it. We are undergoing the economic equivalent of Katrina and Gustav rolled into one.

What’s going to happen next?

It’ll get worse.

It’ll probably have a horrendous fall-out.

The eyeores amongst us are saying it’ll remain dreadful for five years…five years of chicken noodle soup; five years of Bronco; five years of living in sweaters to keep out the cold; five years of home made beer.

But actually it’s a wake-up call to enterprise.

It’s the new age of the entrepreneur when the true resilient spirit of the human race will shine through.

Inspiration beckons…

Ask not what your country can do for you. Ask what you can do for your country.
