#143 - The Spanish paradox

26 mins | Feb 10, 2022

Today's episode from 10th February 2022. Forget Germany, France or Italy — Spain is creating jobs like no other European country, with more than 30% of all eurozone jobs coming from the region in 2021. This doesn't tell the whole story, though, as GDP remains low and salaries stagnant. What's behind this paradox? We'll explore this morning. Then later, more and more of us have been imagining our life in new ways but can wishful thinking really work? We look at the somewhat controversial practise of manifestation and how it's picked up since the pandemic. Spanish unemployment has fallen to its lowest level in decades and was the source of more than one-third of all jobs created in the eurozone in 2021. Why is this? Daniel Dombey and Martin Arnold investigate for the Financial Times. "My life completely turned around." The controversial concept of willing your goals into existence has leapt in popularity since Covid began. But how do you do it – and can it help you realise your dreams? Ammar Kalia has been looking into it for The Guardian. 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.
