    There’s something in the air: people are edgy and worried. But about what, exactly?

    Despite allegedly rosy economic statistics and endless cheerleading about how the markets have bottomed and how growth is poised to come roaring back, our heads and our guts instead tell us something is very wrong.

    People everywhere can feel it. They're expressing varying levels of dissatisfaction: ranging from mildly concerned, to very worried, to downright pissed off.

    We see it broadly in the hostility and opinion canyons of the election cycle. Perhaps we’ve experienced it personally, through the ending of a relationship that no longer works as we need it to.
