} catch(err) {}2008 has been a watershed year in many ways and everyone is talking about 2009 with hopes of better times.

There is one theme that should become important in 2009 given the learning from the Mortgage Crisis, Auto bailout and resulting  union supplier competitor unity and the Madoff scandal. And that is more trust and transparency that would have to be re-built from the ground up.

We should see more online transactions and use of the Internet both by businesses and also consumers as with the recent zoom in Amazon sales. When transactions are digital and open to scrutiny by those concerned on a real time basis- there is a real shot for everyone concerned- to chime in with comments and concerns- in time. So as more systems go online there will be more integration both for the sake of reducing costs and improving efficiency but also bringing real time trust and transparency in dealings.

Wishing readers a Very Happy and Prosperous 2009 !
