the year 2008 in review
And to think that 2007 seemed like an interesting year...
I think that the Guardian put had it best:
"It was the year the neo-liberal economic orthodoxy that ran the world for 30 years suffered a heart attack of epic proportions. Not since 1929 has the financial community witnessed 12 months like it."
We can argue which event was more meaningful (About.com did a nice job about that), but whether its the stock market you are after or the salvation of the too-big-too-fail that shook you to the core, however you look at life now, one cannot ignore this - economically wise, 2008 has taught us all that we know a lot less than we thought we did.
Time to start learning again.
Will humility suffice?
