So - sounds of fear. Sounds of struggling commerce. And the sound of employee joy.
And what do I see? Out the window there is a decapitated snowman in the street out in front of my house. He is taking up a parking space and he is not melting. He is disfunctional as far as snowmen go, and, a bit sad looking. Snowmen are supposed to melt gracefully, head on. Insert your world economy metaphor here.
