“May you live in interesting times!” – says a well-known Chinese proverb. Irony? Pessimist forecast? For many people – it certainly is, but not for Krzysztof Pawiński – said the Rector of the Warsaw School of Economics, Prof. Piotr Wachowiak. When asked about the pandemic in a recent interview, he said that it could be a leaven of good change, so people cannot waste this crisis. – It’s not the end of the world. After the crisis, everything will be different, but better. After all, failure or even a crisis can be, and even should be, seen as an opportunity – for development, a better future, progress. We just need to skillfully deal with this difficult lesson that life teaches us more than once – pointed out Prof. Wachowiak.
