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?
Remind me what it’s like working for a firm where people know how to use technology? Nobody at my firm knows how to use zoom. They don’t know how to share a screen. So they use their phone camera and it’s lopsided and shaky.

Who develops video games and is willing to share their experience with a 8 year old? My son has a "passion" project as part of his schooling. He has chosen to create a video game and expressed interest in talking to someone who does it now. I'm a HUGE fan bc video games have helped him navigate ADHD, learn about frustration and rewards, and connect with other kids IRL 🎉🎉. I can't imagine it will last more than 30 minutes and would be deeply grateful. We are on MDT.
