Before we begin. If you are an eternal optimist who never lets facts and history get in the way of your positive attitude perhaps return to Chrystal Karma Weekly and give this little story a miss. And now, let’s begin. We find ourselves in a unique situation. Never before in modern times have we seen a pandemic of the magnitude of the current Covid crisis.

Reader warning. In order for this to make sense best to read the previous bulletin if you haven’t already done so.  Then again, if you are used to my stream of consciousness rants press on regardless! We left things last month with observations around bank activity during Covid, a consumer culture of low responsibility and some sense that banks need to provide alternate options for clients who are prepared to pay for it. Let’s digress for a moment.  As many of you will know I am a student of the motor industry. That is, I love cars and have a history of making “investment” decisionsRead More →
