(The) Startup Depression

[...]Since stock market gyrations and the elections seem to be making everyone rightfully nauseous and depressed, I thought I would take this email to discuss the biggest ramifications of these challenging times: depression.
It's my believe that the economic downturn will be much worse than it is today, and that 50-80% of the venture-backed startups currently operating will shut down or go on life-support (i.e. 3-4 folks working on them) within the next 18 months.
Make a list of every Web 2.0 startup to raise an A or B round and
cross 80% of them off the list, because they will not make it to their next round of funding or profitability.
Now, I could be totally wrong. No one can guess or time the markets perfectly. However, planning for the worst is a virtuous idea, so I encourage you to read on.
Everyone I talk to is feeling confused, paralyzed and anxious — many are in full-blown depression. People are scared, and they should be. This could be the start of a very difficult time for our country and the rest of the world.
In this email, we'll focus on the entrepreneurial and startup
depression and economic downturns/depressions—and how you can deal with them.[...]
