I’ve never heard the phrase ‘Penny Leaning’ but it certainly reminds us of those difficult times around the depression which caused such misery to so many.

Sometimes I wonder, how is it possible we have advanced so far in the intervening 80 years and yet learned so little? Todays financial crises will undoubtedly mark millions of lives in exactly the same devastating way as the recessions of that epoque.
