Wolf Richter – Making Sense of Economic Madness
December 21, 2021
2021 has been a difficult year, to say the least. Faced with chip shortages, a global pandemic, container ships stuck at port, and record inflation, many businesses closed their doors or seized the opportunity for growth. As we continue our lives, things are ripe for change. We may work from home, interacting with coworkers via webcam and Slack. Office buildings may become irrelevant, and many malls already have. What does the future look like for these once-flourishing buildings? As e-commerce continues to overtake physical sales, warehouses and delivery services become crucial. Housing is a pain point for many people, with prices through the roof and availability at a critical low. It seems that the only constant in today’s economy is change.
