The short answer is yes. However, something we should think about is this. Creativity flourishes in hard times. It makes sense doesn’t it? What great art would you make if everything was great? What great song would you write if you had millions in the bank? (None, just ask U2 – ed). What great book would your write if life… anyway, you get the picture. That’s why hip hop, grunge and blues all came out of bleak situations and Brittney, JT and Miley Cyrus didn’t.

But that’s not all. It’s a fact that book sales go up when the economy goes down. The same thing goes for cinema box offices. People want to escape reality and, understandably, they expect better value for money. The result: better quality stuff. So, you know, go make something amazing.
