We have entered the economic twilight zone – where all is not as it seems….and where one day’s good numbers can be a mirage to b e destroyed by the next day’s reality.
We always knew it would come to this – when we would be in that tricky economic area where things are still getting worse – but not as fast. It is like the skier going down the slope who is still descending but slowing down.
Some call it glimmers of hope. Others call it Green shoots – Here we have our QI Traffic lights – where the colour is the sign of what is going on.
We are now clear of the static red – when things were so grim that there was seemingly little hope.
And we have not yet hit that magic area of Green – whether it be weak – it still tells us things are getting better.
We are stuck. Right in the middle. Waiting. With signs suggesting neither one way or the other. Just waiting.
The economic twilight zone – it won’t last forever but that’s where we are today.
Are you in the Twilight zone? And how does it feel?
