Of Recession, & Layoffs

Even, just 3 months ago attrition was the key topic of all informal/formal gatherings , general conversations etc. Now, that has been replaced by words like recession - and layoffs. Almost everyone just has to touch on these words because if he does'nt, then he is likely to perceived as out of synch.

Perceptions aside the jury is out whether India stands to gain in the Global Slowdown and there are voices which say that any economic slowdown is an opportunity for Growth - oxymoron? Some of the Greatest Companies like Microsoft( late 70s) & Google(late 90's)  started during periods of recession

The idea for this post came to me while reading a WSJ article on showing a brave face if you do get laid off. Simple & nice article.
