GFC: Survival Tips and Business Opportunities

I missed Mong Palatino‘s third Global Voices post on the Global economic crisis last week. It’s worth sharing what bloggers around the world have been saying:

The global economic recession is spreading gloom and despair everywhere. But the human spirit cannot be easily defeated. Many are trying hard to cope with the crisis. Bloggers are offering survival tips to their readers. Businesses around the world are adjusting. They are adopting new strategies; some are even profiting from the crisis. In this post, I will try to mention numerous examples of individuals and companies exerting their very best to overcome the recession.

Mong has also completed his fourth article in this series:

This post focuses on the stories of the unemployed and migrant workers who are returning home to their countries.

  1. Please don’t forget that half the world’s population is living on $US 1.50 a day or less – with or without greed-driven capitalist financial implosion.

  2. Yes gab, we lead a charmed life here in NuNuLand.

    It’s hard to rationalise if you begin to take the rest of the planet’s bio-pop into account. A certain degree of individual ruthlessness is required to maintain a mental image of absolute self entitlement.
    Dog eat dog & all that.

    Frackin’ lucky we are.

  3. Will bankers join the G 20-initiated push for a systemically fairer world?

  4. Grow your own veges ( which I have done all my life thanks to parents who did the same) seems to be taking off and I think this is a good way to save on costs.

    Apparently tonight on Today Tonight there are two families which will swap places. One spends $100 per week on groceries and the other spends $800 per week. I am amazed that anyone would spend $800 per week on groceries.

  5. Shane…I’m amazed that people put the groceries on credit cards. Or..maybe they can’t afford to buy food unless they put it on credit? Read eons ago (with apologies to anyone’s sensibilities..but I figure that we’re friends).

    And this is from about 2 years ago (sorry no link, just from memory). The items most often shoplifted are tampons and baby food.

    The cost of the aforementioned ‘lady’s things’ is a crime in’s not if one can go without nor make do with less.
