Gartner Symposium 2009

An idea from the Gartner Symposium this year..

Chief economist at First National Bank, Dr. Cees Bruggemans told us how the global economy lost a tire recently.. it was a major bump in the road (even if you look at it over a long timeline), yet global financial leaders were quick to respond and he thinks we’ll be back on track very soon.

He was optimistic. A few people who attended the talk commented that he is (often) overly optimistic.

The part I liked was how he explained the western world’s attitude in responding to this indecent…

“This will not stand.” “Not on my watch.” “We will not go quietly into the night!”
