Royal Wedding proving good for business... as well as the country

Following on from our Spring issue article on the Royal Wedding merchandise, the wedding is now two days away and the UK has gone mad for Royal nuptial mania. Is this a bad thing? No way, agree most experts.
The amount of revenue brought in from tourism, entertaining, merchandise and everything else is adding to the sense of national pride and the fact that for once, the papers are filled with what many would deem to be good news, instead of the usual.
The national day off for most on Friday has meant three short weeks in a row, and apparently up to a third of the UK workforce has taken the three days off between Easter Monday and the Wedding off. This has been labeled bad for small businesses and the economy in general - however, with the marriage predicted to be watched by an estimated 2 billion people around the globe, and the money brought into the country projected to be in the hundreds of millions of pounds, most people agree that this is only a good thing for the country. What do you think?
