Description

Economist Noreena Hertz believes we’re living in ‘The Lonely Century’. Loneliness is fuelling extremism, poor workplace productivity and a booming industry of goods designed to help us feel less alone. So, how should leaders help a disconnected planet come together in a post-COVID world?

On the Sky News Daily podcast, host Dermot Murnaghan speaks to Noreena about people-watching in Euston Station, and why public libraries could be a solution to the loneliness epidemic. Plus, Scott Rosenbaum explains why his 'Rent A Friend' website is becoming so popular.
