Great Depression Vs Now - Something to consider

On my recent trip to USA I learnt some incredible things on the business courses I was on. One thing which was amazing was the comparison between what happenend in 1929 in the Great Depression and where we are now.

At the end of the day you need to be very vigilant to turn this market into opportunity!

Here are some great articles to understand what I am talking about.
