Small biz Survival: Rural and Small Town Business Resource Blog | By Becky McCray | July 11, 2010

This week, a monumental report on rural England's problems and rural potential hit the media with headlines like "Rural England key to economic recovery."

Rural England is leading the way to economic recovery, thanks to high levels of entrepreneurship in the countryside, a report has revealed.
Another news story focused on the "green" jobs possible in the countryside to help turn the economy around. Daelnet added their own countryman commentary full of irony, with "Last will and testament for rural life."
I love that! Now that the city slickers who run our banks and hedge funds have pitched the world into a financial crisis, and a former Government run by townies has left the Treasury coffers bare, we should turn to country folk to pull us out of the mire!
Other headlines focused on the soaring unemployment in rural areas. From Google News, here is the list of UK news coverage and the US news coverage.

This burst of rural news was started by the release of a major report by the Commission for Rural Communities.
State of the countryside 2010 provides a comprehensive description of social, economic and environmental conditions and changes across rural England, highlighting the main challenges and future trends for government and other organisations.
