Can you associate an economic downturn with anything positive?


Ireland had one of the worst economic disasters in history. Major unemployment, mass emigration, home repossession. One possitive thing was that it allowed parents more time to stay at home with their family and stimulated creativity, through desperation. Can you think of anything else positive?

    That's pretty much what it thought me as well. I became a little obsessed with finding the best food deals and cheap alternatives. Pretty much the whole country did that and the discount supermarkets boomed!
