Shall we do a 10 year retrospective a year early? Why not.
I feel this event has completely defined my adult life (I was 13/14 in 2008), only really ever knowing jobs, over-priced rent, my Dad struggling to find regular work, everything from pubs to libraries to doctor surgeries shutting.
However, I don’t really remember how it was before 2008. Was everything a bit more prosperous, or was it just as straitened as it has been for the past nine years? How did it affect you, if it did? Are we still living in its effects? Do you think it will be remembered similarly to the Great Depression of 1930s?
It would be great to hear from people who were adults before 2008 especially.
