Can the schools open? | Start of a new stock market year | And a big subsidy pot for electric driving

Shares, bonds or crypto: what should we invest in this year? RTL Z asked a few stock commentators for a preview. Of course no one has a crystal ball, but there are some points to point out. “Shares are now the most interesting, but blind buying like in 2021 is no longer possible.”

Sweaty hands for parents and schools. The – just now outgoing – cabinet is looking today whether education can open again on January 10. Various organizations and (primary) schools are advocating to open the doors again in any case, at least for students in group 8 who receive tests in January that count heavily for their secondary school advice at the end of the school year.

If you’re thinking of buying an electric car, do it this week. Or at the very least hurry up with it, at least if you want a subsidy for it. It’s available today from 9am (read the fine print). And although the pot with 71 million euros is a lot more filled than last year, it is still expected that it will fly through.

New year, new job. Or at least: new workplace. On different radio stations you will have to get used to new voices in the morning. For example, Astrid Kersseboom will present the NOS Radio 1 Journaal. She succeeds Jurgen van den Berg. Wietze de Jager and Klaas van der Eerden blare through the speakers on 538, with news reader Mart Grol. The trio replaces Frank Dane’s morning show after three years.

This piece was the most shared over the weekend:
Rising prices are one thing, but if the Netherlands’ favorite homewares store also starts to do so… Although it remains to be seen whether the average price increase of 9 percent on the Besta’s and Malms will also apply to us.

We think you should also read this:
Or actually that you have to scroll through these pictures, because there were some spectacular houses for sale last year. And yes, spectacular usually comes with a price, but you can also live very special without paying the main price.

And this you might have missed the weekend:
We finally know where the figures will be in the new Rutte-IV cabinet. It’s a special bunch. For example, non-lawyer Dilan Yesilgoz may lead the Ministry of Justice and Security, known foreign time Sigrid Kaag will manage the treasury and former treasury manager Wopke Hoekstra will be allowed to manage Foreign Affairs. But the first among the equals is still Mark Rutte.

This could come along at the coffee machine:

  • What a job: spending three weeks under the stage of the Eurovision Song Contest
  • You’ve probably known it for a long time, but if you’re not that one person from Doorn, you didn’t start the new year as a millionaire
  • Just a little bit of nostalgia with this video about the introduction of the euro (20 years ago, how time flies)
  • The blood is crawling where it can’t go and that certainly applies to F1 commentator Olav Mol

Good day!

ps Columnist Piet Rietman tried for a year not to participate in the issues of the day, but that turned out to be quite difficult.
