To kick the week off, Anthea takes a look at SA Macro updates from the country going into technical recession to the government subsidising the petrol price for September, raising it by only 5c a litre instead of the expected 25-30c. In companies reporting, she touches on Supergroup, Discovery, MMI, FirstRand and Capitec. And in global news, find out how US non-farm payrolls came out better than expected, Amazon becoming the second US listed company to reach a 13 digit valuation of $1trn and how Elon Musk smoking weed impacted his business. In closing, Anthea brings up Jack Ma’s retirement and the plans he has in place for that.

How is the recession affecting us?
