We are climbing a ladder made of whipped cream

Sir Martin Wolf writes “After the storm comes a hard climb” July 15, and the title is indeed optimistic as it seems to imply as a first Hurrah! that we already hit bottom and as the second that we have got ourselves a good ladder. I am not at all sure the first Hurrah is true, let’s pray it is, but what I do know is that the ladder we are currently using is not solid enough for any sustainable growth. I would say the current ladder looks and feels like made out of whipped cream, and most probably is.
