"We tend to view prolonged economic downturns, like the Great Depression of the 1930's and the long Depression of the late 19th Century, in terms of the crisis and pain they cause, rather than as the opportunities they invariably represent.

But history teaches us that these great crises are opportunities to remake our economy and society and generate whole new epochs of economic growth and prosperity.

These periods of "creative destruction" have been some of the most fertile, in terms of innovation, invention and energetic risk-taking in history, and this is what sets the stage for full-scale recovery.

In this edition of Global Business Peter Day hears from Richard Florida, author of The Great Reset, who tells him about the patterns that will drive the next 'great reset' and simultaneously reshape virtually every aspect of our lives.

From how and where we live to how we work to how we invest in individuals and infrastructure, and how we shape our cities and regions

 Actually, I think this Canadian Guy should be interviewed by Mr Alex Jones. Richard Florida is promoting (I guess) his book "The Great Reset" but also his take on how to swallow this most bitter of economic downturn pills, - by looking at the opportunities it offers, and he addresses the fact that no global leaders nor politicians are talking about these positive possibilities at this time. They seem to prefer leaving us (particularly) to dwell on the -ve side. (Fear = Anger). Oh, how convenient for them.

It's an encouragment, because too much fear-mongering is only bad-news and some folk don't function well when bombarded by nothing but a constant onslaught of bad-news.

It's also available as a download (during opening hours from my own back-up server)
