I agree with the above quote attributed to Xi Jinping during this week’s economic summit. A not insignificant aspect of “the economy” is grounded in belief, belief that tomorrow can be better than today.
The only way to build critical confidence and success is with with responsible, proactive, fiscally sound, consistent, clear thinking that manages expense to/and income. Leadership when others may fear they may be lost. Not exactly something I had to go to business school to learn, no novel revelation on my part, no different than each company I’ve managed to turn around, rather common sense, good judgement and a Champion.
