The current worldwide financial crisis is probably the most serious economic crisis we have faced after the Great Depression. Stock markets from around the world fell as much as 20% in a single week, dozens of banks either failed or were rescued by governments and private institutions, and companies are laying off employees as a consequence of the reduced demand.
We know how we entered into the crisis, but we don’t know when or how we will be getting out of it. Considering that issue, the Spanker decided to do a little bit to help cheer everyone up by presenting the future logos of some renowned companies …. AFTER the crisis, with mergers, takeovers and bailouts having taken place.
