If you’re launching a startup, it’s best not to overthink macroeconomics. It’s outside of your control and impossible to predict. Better to focus your energy on what you can control.
Still, it’s prudent to have some awareness of economic cycles and what they mean for your business. While it’s impossible to predict what will unfold with the global economy ten weeks or three years from now, it is possible to read a few tea leaves and sniff around at where we are, broadly speaking, within an economic cycle.
