Calm before the storm or rather getting used to the constant lightning?
September is the time of returns - we are returning to work and school from holidays, the media are announcing new schedules, and politics is returning to the standard track: from meetings in the field, to the building of the Parliament. In this summer, however, it was difficult to see the cucumber season - we watched what inflation would reach and prices were rising, we were worried about fuel for the winter, we watched the situation in Ukraine or we watched what was happening with the Odra River. And the coronavirus was still constantly in the background of other problems.
We open the post-holiday season with stable results with September's results, with no significant changes compared to August. Despite the many problems that surround us, the consumer mood seems unshakable. Perhaps these difficulties, which have lasted for several months, have been present in our lives for so long that we used to them and do not impress us much? Or maybe after the holidays we have not yet returned to our routine and these declines in moods, along with drops in temperatures, will return with a double strength next month?
One thing is certain: there is so much going on around us that it is worth observing our indicators and monitoring social mood.
