"The secret to surviving the worst recession in modern history can be found in the most unlikely place: VERMONT. This according to Green Mountain state native Bob Stannard who believes that Vermont has been in a recession since around 1790. Bob's mystified that the rest of the world is struggling with the effects of a fiscal meltdown. In his view, simply living a lifetime in Vermont is about all you need to prepare yourself for a global meltdown. In this book, Bob shares his discovery of a way to carve a living out of his tiny state by doing just about...well...everything. He has worked as a logger, owned a lawn and garden business, run an energy audit company, served as a state representative and local selectman, sold commercial real estate, performed as a professional blues singer and harmonica player, and currently earns his living as a lobbyist. Aside from teaching how best to cope during the hard times, Stannard also takes time in his book, modestly to explain the meaning of life"--Publisher.
