All the answers to the crisis were grim,what seems to be a crisis of confidence in Wall Street, has the potential to spread out to a global crisis as Western Europe, Russia, and most of Asia; but the CEO of Dupont reacted to the crisis in less than six weeks.

One of their ways of solving the economic crisis was looking at longer-term actions the company needed to take; but that take a lot of time. So the fastest way of solving it for Dupont was cutting back as much as possible on the over 20,000 outside contractor the company had hired.

This are two of the ways of solving it but there will be al lot more to do depending on the economy the next two years.

Even when the situation returns to normal Holliday predicts that the inflactionaty trends will renew themselves, but for that happening Dupont will be able to solve any incident without problems.
