I am much more optimistic today than I have been in many years as far as the economy is concerned. We are going through a difficult time. We are always bound to go through difficult times when the oilprice crash and with all the mismanagement of the past but I think right now, we are finally about to turn a corner. We need to be realistic, nobody should expect overnight that things will change. Inflation will be with us for sometime, recession will be reversed gradually"he said
