Rodrigo Nino: Crisis created renewal
Rodrigo Nino: Crisis created renewal
Founder and President of luxury international real estate firm Prodigy International

When the news hit about Lehman, I was blanketed by a feeling of solitude. There was a sense that we had been living an artificial lifestyle for years. The parties, the spending, the market gains, all seemed unreal.

One thing that I felt was that the crisis was a turning point politically and socially. It created renewal. The survivors have found different opportunities. Entrepreneurs are thriving and will replace a lot of the old financial guys in terms of power. Manhattan will be full of people with alternative concepts and ideas in all sectors.
