Can you provide, in a snappy soundbite, a solution for a major crisis?
We all know them, the street interviews with the ordinary men, made by the reporters of the news channels, which then are cut into a fast soundbite for when the show airs.
For me, nine out of ten times they don’t add much to the report about the news item.
Probably because nine out of ten persons don’t have the specialized knowledge about a certain subject?
Or they get overcome by nerves?
Whichever, seldom I hear a brilliant solution to a big crisis.
My question: If I would be standing in front of you with a microphone and ask you how to solve the global financial crisis, can you come up with a solution, packed in one sentence?
Or how can we solve terrorism?
Or give your solution again, in one soundbite to a problem that you deem urgent.
