Life has really become outrageously expensive in a year. Those are our words, but we base them on the hard figures from CBS. It reported this morning that inflation in October was 3.4 percent, the strongest increase since April 2002. You don’t have to have studied rocket science to know this, a look at your energy bill and fuel receipts is enough for most.

The year is far from over, but at the AFM they are already looking ahead to 2022. The stock watchdog is touring the fields of low interest rates, high house and stock prices and other risks to financial stability.

The speeches at the climate summit in Glasgow are bursting with speeches, some more inspiring than others. Is it better to approach a loaded subject like climate change with reason or better with emotion? And who managed to get their message across well? We asked two speech experts.

An old-fashioned busy day for investors. They can delve into and marvel at the figures of banking giant ING, builder BAM, PostNL competitor DHL, Philips attacker Siemens Healthineers and game maker Nintendo. And our parent company RTL Group also opens the books. Just like accommodation broker Airbnb and stock exchange company Euronext.

Our very own thermometer in the red-hot housing market. We are of course talking about the unsurpassed RTL Z *clarion call* Huizenindex. How do we restore a stalled market? We discuss the options with Mr. Woningmarkt himself, Peter Boelhouwer. So watch. On your picture tube or via your internet browser.

We think you should also read this:
While the phasing out of coal-fired power stations is raging in Glasgow, coal producers’ accountants are working overtime. The companies profit from the unrest in the energy market. And their investors too. Yes, because that’s how it goes.

And this you may have missed last night:
Man suffers most from the suffering he fears. And that also applies to those who are afraid that Uncle Putin will not supply extra gas after all. Uncertainty trumps and yes, then prices shoot up again.

This could come along at the digital coffee machine:

Good day!

PS You know that game where you can propose any solution to staff shortages, except the most obvious? It is very similar to the game ‘the floor is lava’, writes Piet Rietman.
