    How could the recent increase in homeworking affect the economy?

    Interesting report from the Bank Of England:

    We don’t yet know to what extent the increase in homeworking will persist, and any economic effects are very uncertain. The Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) will be closely monitoring the issue as the immediate effects of the pandemic recede.

      Some studies suggest working from home can boost productivity ... However, other studies suggest that it can reduce productivity...
      It's good that they're keeping all options open!

          Do people spend less when working from home? Probably not good for the lunch time trade.
          Scoots still says that Apr 2020 didn't mark the start of a new stock bull market.

            Saved a fortune working from home, especially now I don't wear clothes or wash!

            Seriously fuel & spending when out is right down. No pub lunches, quick pop to shops and 25-50 miles a day fuel.

            I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

                    Mrs V is home all the time anyway with little kids, give her half a chance I would have to wear speedos to keep cool.
