Let me be clear right from the outset: this is not an article about politics when it comes to whose guy or gal is currently seated or running. This is about the current state of affairs as it pertains to business; how they seem to be in motion; and, how it may affect one’s business, or, business in general. As for the ‘who’s in,’ or ‘who’s out’ – that’s for others to debate.
So, with that said, I want to outline a few developing issues that have the potential (true potential, not the hyperbolic) for outright disruption of all business as we know it. And no – not the type of ‘disruption’ that emanates from the tech world. No, this one is far more disruptive, and, has implications for not only the business world, but the citizenry as well. After all: if you don’t think a business disruption can wreak havoc quickly – watch how fast calamity ensues once it’s realized a lowly roll of toilet paper will no longer be available.
Back in October of last year I penned an article titled: A Perilous Possibility: Weaponizing The Fed. In it I made a few arguments about both the dangers, as well as, how differing circumstances may implement such a scenario. Whether intentional, or not.
As always the so-called ‘smart crowd’ within media circles balked at the idea. However, I heard from quite a few in the business community that shared the same concerns once they understood precisely what ‘the game afoot’ and its ramifications just might entail. And, I am of the opinion that ‘game’ is not only afoot, but rather, blindly running at full speed in search of a cliff. The real problem for the rest of us is this: games that end with cliffs don’t bode well for either the 1st place finisher – or last. Below is an excerpt from that article. To wit:
