I think I might have worked out why people are anxious and it has almost nothing to do with the economy. People are anxious because they don’t know what’s coming next. It’s not reality but uncertainty and volatility that’s the problem. People want a view of what lies ahead. A narrative if you like.
If instead of trying to individually predict the future we could collectively decide which direction we’d all like to travel in, I think the world would be a better place.
