Abstract: Performing artists are used to dealing with uncertainty--how will the next performance go, what will the new conductor expect, will my current combination of jobs and gigs be enough to pay the bills? Likewise, health care professionals have to deal with uncertainty on a regular basis--is the patient's chest pain due to myocardial ischemia or something else, will the treatment I prescribed for the pianist with arm pain be effective? But all of us on every continent are dealing with a great deal of economic uncertainty these days. From the "fiscal cliff" in the USA to the debt crisis affecting several of the Eurozone economies to the sluggish growth in Japan, the economic outlook for the global economy in 2013 and beyond is not good. How will these economic trends affect performing artists and the health care professionals who provide care for them?
