The Bigger Picture: UK unemployment, UK/EU negotiations & unintended consequences
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at the Chancellor's new Kickstart scheme to get young people into work and asks whether it's a plan for the future or the past. He assesses whether there could be a breakthrough in UK/EU negotiations and explains why this one will not go right down to the wire. And, in the light of American left-wing protests, he wonders if - by the law of unintended consequences - the protesters might not bring about that which they least want.

Modern Mindset: Spiritual Life Coaching for Men
Adam Cox is joined by Florentina Ginoea, a spiritual life coach who helps men to identify their masculine archetype and to make changes in their professional and personal lives. Florentina shares her opinion that many men can feel unfulfilled in their lives, but are playing a role of the “provider” or “protector”, which often prevents them from being vulnerable or authentic. Florentina explains how she helps men to connect with their true identity.

Economist Questions

Economist Questions: Work in the time of Coronavirus - What will become of the workplace?
In the second instalment of this series looking at how Coronavirus has affected the working landscape, Peter Urwin is joined by Professor Emma Parry: Professor of Human Resource Management and Group Head Changing World of Work at Cranfield School of Management. They discuss what work will look like after the pandemic; drawing on a variety of recent evidence from surveys of HR practitioners, employees and companies to better understand which of the changes to working will persist beyond the current crisis. For instance, there is a clear gender split emerging as the burden of childcare continues to fall on women, who are being forced to balance the demands of working from home and home-schooling. But will this turn around now schools are reopening, and working from home brings benefits for those with caring responsibilities?

This is Money: What's behind the UK property and US shares lockdown mini-booms?
The property market in the UK and the stock market in the US appear to be pulling off gravity-defying feats. The coronavirus crisis is still here, waves of job losses keep on coming and almost everyone is agreed there is more bad news to come. Yet, shares in the US and house prices in the UK are on the up. Is there anything behind this other than cheap central bank money and the belief that it will keep flowing and propping up asset prices? Perhaps, we have underestimated the resilience of the high flying tech stars and the British home buyer? On this week's podcast Simon lambert and Georgie Frost look at the parallels and differences between the British and American national obsessions of the property market and stock market. Plus, the mortgage crunch that is locking out first-time buyers from the party and the Metro Bank customer cruelly scammed twice are on the agenda. And finally, missing Eat Out to Help Out already? We reveal how to keep supporting the economy / wasting money / stuffing your face (delete as applicable depending on your view) for at least the rest of this month.
