#25 - Global economic health
Today's episode from 10th August 2021. First off this morning, the long-term damage to the economy as a result of the pandemic will almost certainly be far smaller than that after the 2008 financial crisis. We look at this encouraging news tinged with a hint of caution. And later on, why you don't need self-help books to answer the most important questions in your life. We've got a guide on how to find answers by searching within. Rich countries have had the opportunity to roll out vaccination efforts effectively, leading to fewer restrictions and encouraging economic outputs. But, as Chris Giles argues, the Delta variant is a stark reminder of the challenges the world still face and why the best way for these prosperous nations to think about themselves right now, is to think about others too. This instalment of Nir and Far goes deeper into the practice of self-awareness. If you understand your personality, you understand your values, relationships and how you process experiences. Here, Nir Eyal reveals how letting your mind positively wander about its inner workings can enable creative new solutions to seemingly impossible problems. 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.
