Fiscal crisis continues to threaten our struggling economy

IT is hard to disagree with Standard & Poor’s that the Eurozone is likely to see zero growth until 2014. The situation is worsening again, especially in Spain, where the budget crisis is intensifying amid separationist tensions, and in Greece, which could soon be demoted to being an emerging market again by the FTSE. None of this good news for the UK, which remains in a poor way itself. It is possible that the third quarter saw a rebound in UK growth, following the 0.5 per cent drop in the second quarter – that is what the government is hinting at, anyway – but nobody really knows. Some activity returned in September, especially in the City, but it is wrong to deduce from that the overall economy is recovering. GDP remains smaller than it was at its peak; other economies, such as the US, have long since more than recovered all the lost ground. The biggest drag on UK demand remains falling real wages. This…

Respect op de werkvloer

Manieren, daar gaan we weer. Het is vanzelfsprekend dat collega’s beleefd tegen elkaar moeten zijn. Minder dan 10 jaar geleden, werd het meeste werk nog face-to-face gedaan; in vergaderingen met collega’s of cliënten. Dit betekende dat het onderhouden van een echte  (zakelijke) relatie aan de kern lag van zaken doen en dat mensen eigenlijk gedwongen waren  om beleefd te zijn in de omgang. Vandaag de dag, is de meeste communicatie noch face-to-face, noch real-time. De wereldwijde aard van business zorgt ervoor dat mensen extensief reizen. Dit samengenomen met de nieuwe beweging van thuiswerkers, kan er voor zorgen dat het vroeger nog sociale en drukke kantoor verandert in een spookstad. Persoonlijk contact en sociale activiteiten zijn steeds minder aanwezig. Een recente studie van de Michigan University laat zien dat studenten tegenwoordig minder empathisch zijn dan vorige generaties, waarschijnlijk door de toegenomen afhankelijkheid van elektronische communicatie. Nog een studie toont aan dat Amerikanen  tot een derde minder vrienden en vertrouwden hebben in vergelijking met met twee decennia…
