Rob & Rob are back again with another Friday market update for you.
It seems this week that along with the rest of the nation, Rob & Rob are starting to look towards the end of lockdown. So much so, that Rob B already knows what he’s going to order from Pizza Express when it reopens.
Although the government hasn’t officially said anything about when lockdown will be lifted (there’s still at least another two weeks to go), it’s not stopping people from planning ahead. And one sure sign of that is the fact that rental demand is back up again.
Another sign that things will start to go back to normal post lockdown is recruitment. Most companies have frozen recruitment, but there are many businesses that have kept those recruitment cogs turning, ourselves included.
We’ve been recruiting for one of the most important positions we’ve ever had to recruit for here at Property Hub, and that’s our Chief Operating Officer. So, if you think you’re suitable for the role, go ahead and get your application in.
Today Rob & Rob are also talking about economics. Since 2008 they both made it their mission to understand economics, way more than they originally did. So this week Rob B shared a podcast with Rob D called ‘Pitchforks Economics’ which is about modern monetary theory and it covers a wide range of topics including how much money is going to be spent on recovering from Coronavirus and other important issues like climate change.
Rob B also came across an article in the Financial Times this week titled ‘In a crisis we mainly keep calm and are kinder than ever’ and it’s a really nice opinion piece that looks at things differently to how the media portrays it.
This week’s market update is a bit more positive than previous weeks. So give it a listen if you’re needing a bit of a mood-boost for a Friday.
Enjoy – and we’ll be back next week!
P.S See if you can spot the mistake in this week’s episode…. the lockdown is clearly having an affect on one Rob in particular!
