My World 2021

My world: June 2021…

This is part of a series of articles where our contributors describe how they think things will look a year from now.

Our Proprietor wonders if he’s alone in his optimism about the post-pandemic economy – has he hit on a brilliant solution, or has reading Marx in lockdown warped his brain?

I am normally a pessimist. The son of an arable farmer, weaned on watching England rugby and cricket in the 1970s, my instinct is that things are usually worse than they seem. But not this time. I have read all the essays in our series “My World: June 2021” and I seem to be an outlier optimist. Most of our contributors are bearish on the wider economy, and on real estate in particular. Some are cautious, some dystopian: some see, 12 months from now, quite a sticky patch, others a swamp.
