#236 - Is a recession looming?

23 mins | Jun 21, 2022

Today's episode from 21st June 2022. After the US federal reserve announced its biggest interest rate rise in 15 years and with global stock markets slumping, is a recession inevitable? We hear from top US executives who are bracing themselves for the worst. Then later, good listeners perform better. A psychologist explains how we can all pay more attention when others are speaking. Retailers, including Walmart, have reported that some shoppers are beginning to curtail spending. For The Wall Street Journal, Chip Cutter, Nick Timiraos and Sam Goldfarb explore how a stretch of universal strength gives way to muddled outlook on labour, markets and consumer spending in America. We live in a hyper-outgoing world where people are rewarded for shameless self-promotion, and listening is a skill most haven't developed. From focus to self-control, Tomas Chamorro-Premuzic discusses the essential elements that make a good listener and the steps to improve your listening skills. Wake up with Curio is a different kind of morning show that gives you the context behind the news and gets you motivated for the day ahead, every Monday - Friday.
