Interesting to read that the Chief Economist of the Bank of England thinks creativity will be impaired if people do not work in an office. My prediction would be that creativity has more chance away from the noise and haste; based on the familiar theme that original thinkers, artists and religious figures often had some of their best insights in the wilderness, in periods of solitude, outside of bustling society.

The observation is that quietness from the current melees gives a person a better perspective of the whole picture. More generally, insiders of the throng who are unaware of their predicament, are condemned to behave as they think they are supposed to, deaf to anything more than the current array of behaviours, even in extreme cases where it is insane.
