The Market of XYZ

For the moment, please indulge me a level of opacity.  I want to present a very large and highly respected market segment of the US economy in abstraction.   In the last 50 years, the XYZ marketplace has become ever more central to the US.  It has become the envy of the world.  People from […]

The Collapse of Legacy Thinking

A clear way to look at all the disruption of the 2020s is that legacy thinking and the reality it has created, is collapsing. Legacy thinking is thought from the past.

Will Trump “drop the mic” in August?

In this polarized country it is now necessary to state that this is not a political column. As the tag line above suggests, this is a future look at today.
