why the invisible hand?

Posted on: September 21, 2011

I’m pretty sure that the first thing you’ll want to know is what’s behind the name “the invisible hand”.

As defined by investorwords.com, it is a “term used by Adam Smith to describe the natural force that guides free market capitalism through competition for scarce resources”. Well, as a 36 year-old wife, mother of one, independent worker and a woman in general, that is exactly how I feel. I am the invisible force that keeps my home, my family and my business on track. And I emphasize the invisible part, because most of the time what I do goes unnoticed.

No that I need recognition. It’s just that in my position-as must be the case with thousands everywhere around the world- it’s more a given than anything else. As long as everything goes smoothly, there is no need for recognition. As soon as something falls out of place you’re immediately acknowledged.

And I feel that this is the current trend more or less everywhere. Maybe I’m wrong (and in that case this would be the most short-lived blog in history) but I’m fairly sure I’m not. 

So, what I’m gonna try to do is discuss everyday issues from my own perspective and hopefully there’ll be people out there who can relate to what I’m sharing.

As this is my first post and I’m new at this,  I ask you to be patient with me while I get the hang of it all.   

Stay tuned, serious posting still to come…
