Crisis! What crisis? Why freelancers are the solution to growth for the world economy and your business

With European unemployment approaching 20 million – 12% of the available workforcefreelancers are the solution – things aren’t getting any better any sooner in Europe. That goes double for Spain and Greece, where 1 in 4 people are now unemployed. Don’t even mention the young people fresh out of university. The whole of Europe could be sucked down the plug hole. The future looks apocalyptical. Right?

In fact, recessions and even depressions, despite the lives they affect, are just temporary problems with the system, according to the most respected Economist of all time, John Maynard Keynes. And in a recent article in the New York Review of Books, the historian Paul Krugman made a convincing case for an end to austerity measures, and a significant investment by central governments to boost the economy and our collective fortunes

If Keynes and Krugman’s calculations are right, and provided politicians adopt the prescribed medicine, then the natural state for an economy to be in is growth. And this is what we will return to, inevitably, the only question is when. How long it lasts and how deep it cuts, depends on our beloved leaders.

A timely reminder why freelancers are the solution

In business, in times of crisis, we’re reminded that we must build organisations that are light and flexible to weather the storm, and ready to grow quickly when the economy does. Both conditions to which freelancers and freelancing are the natural solution.
