Why corporations may not care about the domestic economy

Paul Krugman today once again bemoans the lack of Keynesianism in what passes for economic policymaking discussions these days, and I share that complaint.

However, Krugman may be missing part of the problem here, which is that those who pooh-pooh the prospect of deflation may actually not much care if it materializes, though they would be mistaken to do so.

The high cost of conflict avoidance

What's not spoken can be expensive. New research reveals employees waste an average of $1,500 and an 8-hour workday for every crucial conversation they avoid. And these costs can skyrocket if conflict avoidance is endemic in a workforce.

According to a study by Joseph Grenny, co-author of the book, "Crucial Conversations," 95 percent of a company's workforce struggles to speak up to their colleagues about their concerns. As a result, they engage in resource-sapping avoidance tactics, such as ruminating excessively about crucial issues, complaining to others, getting angry, doing unnecessary work and avoiding the person altogether.
