Russian Young People are Shaking Off the old Ways
"You can never be optimistic about anything in our country because it will likely end up badly,"
is the sentiment of the old timers in Russia.
Youngsters who do NOT remember the Soviet times do not share this sentiment…nor do they have
any ideological aversion to capitalism that their parents and grand parents no doubt have.
Young girls wea spike-heeled boots and tread carefully to keep the mud off.
They also manage bank branches that specialize in giving small loans to entrepreneurs.
Start ups were few and far between just a few years ago…bank portfolios have tripled and
clients doubled in some places.
"A lot of people want to open shops," is the new sentiment.
Sounds like pessimism is out and optimism is in.
What do you think?
