In no particular order thoughts going through our mind...
A Better World:
It perhaps naively correct to subscribe to a better world theory, somedays it is, others no so much. What did you do to make it a better world?
We constantly read from experts, pundits, the world economy is not growing fast enough, the challenge with this region, the problem with another. It will keep on going, and going, next year too.
The Canadian economy has taken a bruise in 2015, and will perhaps continue to get some blows in 2016. We seem to linger on some antiquated business models and beliefs. Real Estate will provide more fodder for the analysts, and experts.
Be assured that most folks will do anything and everything to hang on to their current positions. Fascinating that with a ton of technology to facilitate seeking jobs, branding oneself, connecting, and so on. Many folks hang on for dear life.
We have mentioned on numerous occasions that CMS (Citizen Main Street) has been carrying the Canadian economy for the past several years. Easy and inexpensive credit has been a major factor. Could it keep on forever? NO
We are fortunate, we are fully immersed in technology. We are unfortunate, since we are fully immersed in technology.
We are overlooking the fact/reality that we are humans.
What can you say, spectacular, record breaking, we could keep on going. Will it keep on going in 2016?
Everyone clamors for, or mentions transparency. Be your own editor/judge.
Always take a moment to appreciate what you have, your accomplishments, the "brain fades" too. As well as being thankful.
