Rather than the usual caption contest we asked you to put your thinking caps on as we threw in a dose of reality into the contest considering the global climate.  We asked you, in a maximum of 100 words to react to this statement as you see fit:
The world is heading into recession.

The last 2 decades we have over committed to supply and outstripped demand and what we are witnessing as shocks in the finance system is nothing but loans going bad, as a result of projects failing due to lack of demand.

There is a surplus of houses, cars, spas, designer brands, bottled water, dot coms , wine labels, places offering fine dining, dvd players, laptops,movie releases and ipods than the world needs, primarily built on borrowed money. Many predict a deep and dark depression coming globally, especially in the developed world of US, Europe, China & Japan.

The need for Inspiration is more than ever, and the world will need inspiration like never before.

With 20 entries, the winner on this occasion was…(((Drum roll)))……

Rather than the usual caption contest it’s time to really put your thinking caps on as we throw in a dose of reality into the contest considering the global climate at the moment.

This statement was recently sent to us by one of our founders:

The world is heading into recession. 
The last 2 decades we have over committed to supply and outstripped demand and what we are witnessing as shocks in the finance system is nothing but loans going bad, as a result of projects failing due to lack of demand. 
 
There is a surplus of houses, cars, spas, designer brands, bottled water, dot coms, wine labels, places offering fine dining, dvd players, laptops,movie releases and ipods than the world needs, primarily built on borrowed money.  Many predict a deep and dark depression coming globally, especially in the developed world of US, Europe, China & Japan. 
The need for Inspiration is more than ever, and the world will need inspiration like never before.    

So, we ask you, in a maximum of 100 words to react to this statement as you see fit. It could be how humanity can inspire each other, what you feel about the statement, what alternatives we have in whatever form you wish them to be. Anything GO!s – just dig deep, write from the heart and post your answer here in comments. Your call! Sublime, ridiculous or pearls of wisdom all welcomed.

 

 

 

You could always send flowers to someone right now, anywhere in the world . Simply click on our spanking new summer flowers banners and use promo code GSTF99 and you’ll be entitled to a bit of flower smelling discount!

Contest ends on Thursday 16th October Midnight Dubai time. Good luck! ALL are welcome….
