Phil Ruthven from IBIS says we’re not headed for a recession and the world isn’t about to end and we will all make a killing on the stock market in 2013. And he had a LOT of powerpoint charts to prove it. It was a great talk. And Stuart McLean of Google says small now beats big. Which is a bit ironic when Google now has 32,000 employees. So things are truly looking up!
