    Thanks Neil. Very uplifting read.

    To paraphrase Mark Twain, history might not repeat but it certainly rhymes. Your quote from a Teddy Roosevelt is wise advice.

    We only have to look back a century ago to see a very similar situation. Australia was affected by the flow on effects on the UK (and lesser extent US) of the Post WW1 recession in 1920/21 and post Spanish Flu. This was then followed by the Roaring 20’s boom which lasted close to a decade before the Great Depression. The unending cycle of Boom and Bust.

    As the late Jim Rohn popularised in his writings, there are seasons to life, economies etc. The predictable endless cycle of Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter. As you have pointed out there will be another boom as surely as Spring always follows Winter. It’s up to us to recognise these cycles and prepare accordingly.

    This is a terrific article Neil…many thanks. One of my children owns a home and is looking to “trade up”. (Nothing like a baby to make space seem more limited!

    I might well be in touch to take you up on your offer.

    RE: Harry Chapin: I was American, and was able to see a number of his concerts. He started off with himself on guitar, a drummer and a bass player. As he became more well known, he added other musicians. He would typically end concerts with All My Life’s a Circle.

    I’m delighted to know that someone in Australia knows of him, and appreciates his music.

    If you haven’t heard his Harry Chapin Live album, get it. It’s probably the best of all of his work.

    Thanks again Neil.
