This Revolution Will Be Peaceful and Prosperous
Working from home offers employees more daily flexibility, less time commuting, greater job satisfaction, the opportunity to save money, and the ability to boost productivity. Recent data suggest the “hybrid” model combines benefits of working from home with those of going to the office, with an average productivity increase of 5%. And both employees and employers favor it. According to Nicholas Bloom, professor of economics at Stanford University, not only is remote work here to stay. But workers are likely to quit their jobs if they’re told to return to the office full time. In a far-ranging conversation, Bloom and Jim Bianco, founder and president of Bianco Research, talk about what work-from-home means for the redesign of office space, management, the real estate market, and cultural diversity. It’s one of the most fascinating prevailing trends with abundant implications, and it remains underexplored. Bloom and Bianco tread new ground here. Recorded on May 2, 2022.

Here's the Good News About a Recession
The Dow Jones Industrial Average has logged eight consecutive losing weeks, but it’s leading the U.S. equity indexes to the upside today with a gain of more than 2%. Perhaps investors are looking at stocks with Jared Dillian’s style of optimism. “If we get a recession, and it looks like we will,” notes Dillian, “it will be a much easier trading environment than what we’ve been dealing with. Fed easing policy is always easier than Fed tightening policy.” Dillian, author of The Daily Dirtnap, joins Real Vision’s Ash Bennington to make his case for a developing risk-on environment. We also hear from Francis “The Market Sniper” Hunt about Bitcoin and its correlation to old-school financial asset prices. Want to submit questions?

Have you ever wondered what it will take to get to a billion crypto users? That’s widespread adoption. And it’s easier said than done. As CMT Digital’s Sam Hallene sees it, blockchain gaming projects can make it happen. Of course, it will take major investment. But there are viable models. Among the fastest-growing markets in terms of blockchain adoption are Argentina, the Philippines, and Nigeria, where people earn extra income by playing games like Axie Infinity. These are young, tech-savvy populations particularly open to crypto. Sam joins Real Vision’s Ash Bennington for a deep dive into Axie Infinity and other blockchain games, focusing on what makes projects stand out.
