This is an older piece of a great economist thinker (Umair Haque) I came around recently. It’s a year old, but as relevant as ever. If you haven’t read it – do yourself a favor and head to the link below and read the article.
And if you’re a user of Twitter – follow @umairh. Often good for a provocative statement or two. But always good to make you stop and think.
So much human potential squandered for such a significant chunk of time in a life; so much time spent grinding one’s wheels can, it’s true, exhaust one’s fuel for living; can come to leave one feeling stuck in the existential desert. So what happens now? More of the same — a perma-crisis whose human toll on you and I seems to be a kind of crisis-malaise, a habituation to human heartache, the dulling of the once-razor-sharp edge of what could have been? Is that it — all there is, for us, this “lost” generation?
