Maybe it's just changing

Not everyone is spelling out doom and gloom for the future of the economy.

Richard Florida, author of the book The Great Reset, believes that the current crises, though difficult for many, is ultimately going to be a good thing.

He believes that recessions and depressions are really just the economy hitting the “reset button” in a sense when old orders of resource exchange stop working.

The industrial economy is over, and we’re moving into the information age.

The manufacturing sector is almost unanimously cutting jobs that aren’t coming back, but there are a few industries which are growing.

The creative sector, the professional sector and the service sector.

Maybe our economy ISN’T doomed, maybe it’s just heading in a new direction.
