Feel good Sunday: Let us cast aside the limitations of conventional thinking

Throughout history, we’ve witnessed economists stumble in their attempts to predict the future. From the chaos of World War I to the devastating 2008 #economic collapse, their crystal balls have proven flawed.

Economist David McWilliams invites us to break free from this cycle of misguided forecasts. Drawing inspiration from the words of W.B. Yeats, McWilliams advocates for embracing the unconventional thinkers among us – the poets, artists, and musicians.

In their unique perspectives lie the keys to a world unburdened by confirmation bias and enriched with profound understanding.

As we navigate these extraordinary times, McWilliams encourages us to ponder: How do we make sense of it all? Let us cast aside the limitations of traditional analysis and venture into a realm where creativity reigns supreme.
