Do we create our own luck?
Whatever your point of view on Brexit, at least the election result will draw a line under the issue. The Prime Minister will be determined to implement it fast and allow the country to move on. History may yet prove that it is to our advantage to have left an uncertain and over-bureaucratic Europe.
More relevant, in the short term at least, is the slowing down of the Western global economy. An aging population is straining resources and further increasing the tax burden, affecting long-term growth forecasts.
Slow growth means those with positivity and audacious goals will succeed.
Consolidating companies to create efficiency, economy of scale and shareholder value will be a symptom of that success. Positive disruption, with no single driver, may prove more effective than technology in promoting recovery.
