When you considered that ‘finally’ to point at something happy, you may, or may not, be right. OTOH which sounds like ‘auto’, the impact on company size [times number] may vary, as here, with indeterminate results for the economy.
… Wait a sec; this the economy et al. being about the US one. Well, yeah, as they take such an inordinate chunk of publicity/press space. Ramifications are felt elsewhere, too, both regionally and qua global [multiplier] impact of one region on the other. …
Now, alarm bells aren’t ringing yet, but when we consider a. hypes have less short-term impact than we think but more long-term impact than we think; b. such an apparently singular phenomenon has far-reaching impacts in our übercomplex world — have you thought about what the above would mean for e.g., employee empowerment, politics [most partially as will of the people] versus big business, quantitative easing everywhere having flooded/swamped/drowned the world in virtual-not-virtuous money that may have no concrete basis, etc. ..?
So yes it’s of import to think it all through…
