It’s easy to think what happens locally is all that matters. You might sell locally, buy locally, live locally (local is a relative term, it might mean your town, your district, your region, your country etc) but things happening in different parts of the world are going to affect you in some way.
The cost of energy does (or will) be affected by what is happening in Asia and Africa. The cost of food will be affected by demand elsewhere.
Many of us live in our own cocoon and only think about our direct contacts but our lives are influenced and will continue to be influenced by actions from all over the world.
We can continue to live in our own little worlds or be prepared for both the positives and negatives by realizing what is happening all over the world
Be proactive and be prepared or be reactive and hope for the best
Have a great day!
