Shift, Stumble and Sway
We have never been as globally connected as we are today. It has become a fact of life that when something happens overseas it ripples across the world quickly and impacts the value of our money, the quality of our investments and all angles of our businesses. Simple examples of the interconnected global economy twisting and turning exist everywhere, from the American debt ceiling debates and Greek austerity, to earthquakes in Japan and labor union strikes in South America. Commerce is no longer local, and in today's world of mass communication when an important event occurs somewhere, the impact is like that of an earthquake and can be felt worldwide in a matter of minutes.
