In a world of remote consulting work…. How long can the US maintain its high premium over European and, esp. developing market consulting? Both price tag to clients and significantly higher salaries for the people. I imagine may move faster at Big 4, etc. than MBB, but within MBB the huge cost and salary differentials feel… increasingly hard to maintain (even though I think the differential has actually gotten bigger, not smaller in the last two years).

I am sooo tired of this!! Am I the only one who senses that the accounting and finance profession is amongst the most disrespected in the world. I’m in the middle of studying for my CPA and honestly feel I should quit and go back to school for something random.
