happy days, for some
German Interior Minister Wolfgang Schäuble:
“We learned from the worldwide economic crisis of the 1920s (1930s) that an
economic crisis can result in an incredible threat for all of society. The consequences of that depression was Adolf Hitler and, indirectly, World War II and Auschwitz.”
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton:
"Never waste a good crisis. . . . Don’t waste it when it can have a very positive impact on climate change and energy security. . . . This is a propitious time . . . we can actually begin to demonstrate our willingness to confront this."
White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel:
"You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before."
