GM NigelAt this time when many people are trying to move to 'safe' jobs I wonder if a contrarian approach and enterprise is in order. It strikes me that whilst the timing may still be a little early there seem to be many strong arguments in its favour:

1) If a week is a long time in politics, how long will it take the man on the street to decide that those in cushy but unproductive government jobs are just a waste of valuable resources?

2) With many firms in the process of closing down, what demand there is will go to the survivors which offer the best service and value.

3) With resources becoming ever cheaper, research and development (especially on a technological front) can be achieved at lower cost whilst simultaneously reducing the tax bill.

4) Nations may soon be competing to house growing businesses in order to rebuild their economies.

Some questions come to mind, for example how one should identify areas of growth. My first instinct is that the areas with demand will be those which haven't been propped up by government, ie businesses with few employees. But then fewer of these may have gone to the wall.
