There’s a lot of doom and gloom out there. Much of it is real 🙁 My last post talked about the apocalypse.
So I’ve decided to look for bright spots today! Try find some positives somewhere. Came up with the following:
With a generation moving off the construction wave and either ill-equipped or ill-inclined towards an alternate career in the ‘knowledge economy’ (its not realistic to suggest higher order occupations can result in 100% employment) what about going back to our roots in the agrarian economy. As an island nation we can market ourselves as the green hamper, we’ve got the raw materials, whats to stop us becoming the garden of Europe? a new export sector, plenty of innovative and enthusiastic indigenous foodies and a long term labour market to fill the gap in manufacturing or construction related sectors.
