As always, I value your thoughts and again I agree that a new chapter for the global economy is beginning. Business cycles are never repealed. Politicians and businessmen pretend that they do - until they don't. We will look back on 2008-2015 as the first chapter of the 21st century, waving goodbye nostalgically to those notions, customs, and memes that forged the second half of the 20th century into a golden time, if only in our memories, more so, than our actual experiences.
