Diving Into Data: Wait, Are We Back to Normal?

+ more


On this week’s episode of Diving Into Data, TC explores the (unexpected) positive signs from the economy as we continue to reopen after the COVID-19 outbreak and try’s to answer the question, are we back to normal?

Our main segment this week looks into the baffling recovery of the US Stock Market, along with other positive economic indicators, such as a lower than anticipated unemployment rate for May. With the unprecedented situation this year, we freely admitted that we didn’t know what was next… But are these truly signals that things are getting back to normal or could there be other unexpected impacts lurking around the next corner?

Then, in this week’s Industry Rapidfire segment, we look at the return of professional sports in the US. Nearly all major leagues have official ‘restarting’ guidance in place now and are progressing towards us seeing real sports back in August, if not before. What positive signs do we coming from the NFL and NBA? And what about the ominous signals from the MLB? Are we looking at a year without baseball?

Sit back, relax, grab a drink, practice social distancing (things aren’t THAT normal again, yet) and let’s dive into some data.
