“The next Renaissance”

Trudging through the economic data, the news and views that are available everywhere these days, I am struck by the enveloping human drama. 

The financial crisis is moving beyond the economic and the market to the social fabric.

There is a strong dynamic here: the crisis has been ongoing in many parts of the world for four years now and it is likely to continue to have an impact for some time. So, the dynamics are only going to get stronger, and I do wonder where this is all going.

Are we set for a renaissance of sorts? 

Is this fast becoming a moment of historic significance?

The following video is a CNBC interview, (I found this link on Naked Capitalism and I note that this was referred to NC by someone else), but it is interesting and suggests that the occupy Wall Street movement could be part of something bigger.
