Hope for the Laid off

I read this article in USA Today (but can't find it on their website), so here it is reprinted at Chain Leader: From laid off to company leader; Business founders likely to emerge from meltdown.
But among them may be a Tom Stemberg, who founded 43,000-employee Staples after he was pushed out by supermarket chain Finast-Edwards when his division was sold in 1985; or a New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, fired from Salomon Bros., only to start the financial news service that made him a billionaire and today employs about 10,000.

Here's too all of the great ideas and companies that will emerge from the carnage of the financial crisis.
