The economy is not well. This is not only basic fact, but it is also creating interesting pressures that can be decoded using basic economics and history.
I had a conversation with a colleague (about 15 minutes ago) and as a new manager (just recently appointed) of a large group of people I asked him how it was going and how he coped with the pressure.
“My brain is just buzzing. I wake up in the middle of the night thinking”.
He did in fact look very tired, with his eyes not really opening.
