The sense in the never-ending

Investors have yet to get used to uncertainty but we’re going to get a few more years to practice. That’s something to be welcomed, argues John Addis.

The desire for resolution runs deep in the human psyche. Events and their consequences require a neat explanation; loose ends tied, explanations proffered, amends made. The brain loves convenient partitions. After a line has been drawn, we can move on. Closure, as the shrinks say.

It’s now almost five years since the explosive events of the Global Financial Crisis. And yet there is, to paraphrase Julian Barnes, no sense of an ending. In fact, there seems to be no sense at all.
