Show Notes

In Episode 54 of Magic Markets, there’s a new variant in town. And that means that the gap between the haves and the have-nots will just get bigger.

As the world decided to ostracise South Africa instead of supporting the country, it was another reminder of how this virus has widened the wealth gap. As unemployment in South Africa keeps increasing, we highlight a scary statistic out of Standard Bank: unsecured lending has returned to pre-Covid levels, but asset-based lending hasn’t.

In a discussion that touches on a wide variety of points, ranging from office vacancies to the tourism industry, the hosts consider a world that just can’t seem to shake this virus.

Magic Markets is your invitation to be part of our discussions on the markets.
