OT:Financial Crisis and us

Post by Pasha » Wed Oct 08, 2008 12:06 pm

Do you think this World Financial Crisis will set the premises to a lot of merge and acquisition between companies?
Do we have to expect that small companies be sucked into bigger ones?
Can our beloved small companies be doomed?
Let's share our feelings.

I'm with "dragon" Peter Jones on this one...

If everyone stops panicking about it, the situation will improve

but nobody around me is panicking... or what does panicking mean in this situation? buying less stuff? taking money off the bank?

A lot of the problems happen when people over react and do stupid things which lowers confidence in the stock market which then tail spins.

My advice* is for everyone on the planet to just sit back, drink gin and chill out.

I work in construction and there is talk that this could really adversley
future contracts. We were supposed to start a new job on Nov 1st, now even that is being pushed back.

The one good thing to come from this is I will now be able to catch the Pitch Black show in Van.

I suppose I am benefiting from wall streets greed as well :lol:

The real question is how does this impact the release date for Live 8?

Ableton’s engineers are hard
at work developing code that will allow our software to predict the future, but we don’t
anticipate having this available until at least the next major release.

It's not just Wall Street. It's our materialistic greed, too. Nobody forced us to live beyond our means.
