The New World

Our world and how we see it have changed a lot in the past year. Most of us have been affected by the economic upheaval that appeared in September and got worse. It appears that we are now in a period of optimism as people and businesses are restructuring for greater cost efficiency. Commodity prices are rising, GM and others are restructuring for survival. If you read Jeff Rubin (oil economist)and his timely book "How your world is going to get a lot smaller" you can see the beginning of a new era and that people are starting to see limits and adapt to them. The trend is towards localization and away from globalization.
This has certainly been true in my life, mainly due to personal events, but the economic crisis has hurt too and forced quick changes to ways of doing business and to our personal lives. How have you been affected? I would love to hear some comments on this.
