Paul Graham of Y Cominator fame writes a thoughtful post on Why to Start a Startup in a Bad Economy and uses the metaphor of being like a cockroach to survive a nuclear winter“the cheaper your company is to operate, the harder it is to kill.”

We agree wholeheartedly with Paul’s sentiments ” if you want to improve your chances, you should think far more about who you can recruit as a cofounder than the state of the economy.”

Even Madonna described herself - ”I am a survivor. I am like a cockroach, you just can’t get rid of me.”
