So far, I've consciously avoided writing about economics or finance here. I don't feel knowledgable enough to share something valuable.
However, given what we are witnessing around the world, I'm now reconsidering this position. Perhaps we should share whatever insight we have, no matter how small it is. It is up to you, the reader, to take what you find useful and discard the rest.
This post is divided in two parts: first some personal background and then a link to an article sharing the title with this post. If you are only interested in finding the answer to the question, jump directly to the bottom.
