Well, like many of you reading this, I’m iced in and working from home. Do you remember the good old days when a snow day meant the day off from work? Well, technology has changed things just a bit. With a phone and internet connection, I can do 90% of my job from anywhere and there is good chance the same is true for you. As you will read in Notable Number four in this week’s Weekly Market Review; productivity for the average American worker has increased dramatically since the year 2000. So, is the average American worker working harder to be more productive? That could be true for some, but more likely, advances in technology have allowed for this growth in productivity. As much as my kids want me to be out there in the snow with them all day, technology is allowing me to remain productive and working.
As always, we hope you find the Weekly Market Review both informative and interesting. Have a great week and don’t let technology completely keep you from getting out there and enjoying a little winter!
