NO this is not bad management, bad products, bad locations. It’s various sectors, various countries. One underlying problem: Global economic slowdown.
For those who are paying attention, it’s very clear. The global economy is rapidly slowing down and the companies are laying people off. The difference between last cycle and this cycle is that robotics and automation have advanced. Once a resurgence in the economy eventually occurs, there will be much less need for employers to hire all of their former staff. This will have a long-term impact on the economy that will not be resolved by central banks.
