What do you say to a kid about a career in corporate America, Tom Cushing asks in this week's Raucous Caucus. As his daughters embark on the next stage of their lives and careers, Cushing aims to advise but is given pause by the state of the economy.
"Given the gyrations of the past thirty years, the one unassailable truth is that any prediction about the next thirty is bound to be wrong. Uncertainty itself is the most reliable thing on which to count," he writes. "Accordingly, the best advice may be to embrace it as the norm, and maintain as much independence from its vicissitudes as possible."
