Issue 65 - 01 | The World on Reset
By John Hope Bryant Published Dec. 10, 2009 2:56 a.m.

“I keep saying that this is not a recession, it is a reset.

What amazes me is how many brilliant people I know, in the US and around the world, who either don’t see it as anything more than a recession, or who don’t want to. No one really argues with me when I say it, but more so, simply want to turn away; hoping that by turning the mental page, somehow the reality of the statement will simply go away. It is as if society has a vested interest (and we do, by the way) in ‘keeping the party going,’ and doing precisely that, even if for only a little while, and even if that means fooling ourselves. Fear has the world in its grips these days, and fear is the ultimate prosperity killer.”
