typically increase people·s desire for simplicity.
this trend will continue to accelerate through the
recovery into the long term.
A focus on the boardroom: the financial crisis has put
spotlight on corporate governance, in particular of some
executives and complicity of their companies 'boards.
this trend should accelerate through the recession
but will most likely lose velocity over the long term.
