Boom and Bust: Crisis and Response | The Freeman | Ideas On Liberty

The rise in commodity prices is perhaps most ominous. The U.S. economy remains weak and unemployment elevated. Yet Americans are already paying higher prices for gasoline. They are facing the prospect of renewed inflation and economic weakness: stagflation. That would be an updated version of the economy of the 1970s. The Fed is thereby impoverishing Americans. Is it any wonder many are calling for a reconsideration of its role?

Brave New World

As a result of global economic events which it appears no one predicted, at least no one anyone was paying any attention to until after the fact, the world has changed in very fundamental ways for the foreseeable future. Yesterday I heard a couple of “experts” acknowledge this observation.  While I’ve been calling it a “paradigm shift”, they used the term “secular change” but their description of it was very similar to my own.

This blog outlines the changes that will highly affect entrepreneurship, particularly in real estate, technology and wellness, thereby providing a rough road map for those who wish to align with macro trends. Because good predictions, and the actions they inform, are key to success in every endeavor.
