Call AA and ask if they take free money. Alternate is buying up status.

I’ve never at all had mental health issues before but now am really starting to feel burnt out and anxious most of the time. What do you think?

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). Thoughts?
