The lockdowns have weakened the UK economy. Along with most other countries, we now face a recession because GDP plummeted. But I reckon now’s a good time to invest in FTSE shares.We may not feel like investing now, though. After all, ongoing social distancing measures are making it hard for some companies to build up their revenues again as the lockdowns ease. Particularly in the retailing sector, higher costs and lower revenues — because of restricted footfall — are squeezing profits.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Resourceful businesses back FTSE sharesBut businesses are resourceful. Anecdotally, I’d observe that some retailers are raising selling prices to fight profit attrition. But the over-riding factor that keeps me confident about investing in FTSE shares for the long haul is the way the government seems determined to fight economic weakness. Right now, I can see 100 billion reasons to get involved! Let me explain…On Wednesday 17 June, the Bank of England’s Monetary Policy Committee (MPC) voted to continue its programme of quantitative easing. That sounds technical, but it just means pumping new money into the economy to keep things moving. In other words, the government is doing everything it can to stop the economy crashing. And, in the short term, that’s good for shares.Indeed, the central bank will continue the existing £200bn programme of UK government bond and sterling non-financial investment-grade corporate bond purchases. But, on top of that, the MPC voted to increase the programme with an additional £100bn. And, to me, that’s a 100 billion good reasons to keep on investing in FTSE shares!The target for UK government bond purchases is an eye-popping £745bn now. And the Bank of England will finance it by issuing central bank reserves. I love that little word ‘issuing’. It essentially means ‘printing money’ and if we could all do that when we feel like it our personal finances might be in better shape – at least for a while.A good place to beThe central bank explains the process of quantitative easing as “a tool that central banks, like us, can use to inject money directly into the economy.”  Sounds great! The bank goes on to say, “Quantitative easing involves us creating digital money. We then use it to buy things like government debt in the form of bonds.”However, as neat as it sounds, like all ‘medicines’ there are side effects. For example, it stokes up inflation. And all the extra money sloshing about can create asset bubbles. On top of that, it can exaggerate boom-and-bust business cycles, among other things.But, as I mentioned earlier, businesses are resourceful. And holding FTSE shares may be a good place to be if inflation gathers pace. That’s because underlying businesses can raise selling prices to maintain their profitability. On top of that, shares are one of the asset classes that could benefit from the upward pressure quantitative easing tends to place on assets. In a positive note, the Bank of England reckons it’s seeing improvements in the economy and has slowed the pace of asset purchases from where they were in the spring.The outlook for the economy remains uncertain, but I’d much rather be holding shares right now than I would cash savings. 100 billion reasons why I’d buy FTSE shares now Kevin Godbold | Friday, 19th June, 2020 See all posts by Kevin Godbold Click here to claim your free copy of this special investing report now!center_img 5 Stocks For Trying To Build Wealth After 50 Image source: Getty Images Simply click below to discover how you can take advantage of this.

The clients, a couple with four daughters, wished to have a beach house for all of them, in a 23 meter beach-front lot. Their original idea was to have a seafront main house and three adjoining bungalows in back, so in this approach, only the main house would have frontal views to the ocean, and the bungalows wouldn’t. This is especially important taking in regard that even if today no next-door neighbors have built their beach houses, it could happen in any time in the near future. The program required four social areas with their respective services and 10 bedrooms (4 in the main house and two per bungalow). In addition there was a requirement of a shared service and support area.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaThe extensive program and rich natural environment were the main motivations of the design analysis process. Our efforts were applied to one main initial task which was unforeseen by our clients and in a way quite ambitious: Giving each house a frontal direct view to the sea, taking in regard that only diagonal views to the ocean would not cut it, as the neighbors could build in the future and the ocean views would be compromised. Following this ideal, we took the challenge of designing in order that each bedroom and social area could enjoy an ocean view, considering even the future potential surrounding constructions. Accomplishing diagonal views to the sea through the now uninhabited side lots were not that complex in terms of design, but as the views would probably be obstructed by future buildings, we engaged in the much more complicated design task of resolving all views thru our clients lot directly to the sea.Save this picture!First Floor PlanThe work was begun by arranging each house through an imaginary Northwest to Southeast axis in such a way as every house had at least some ocean view and taking advantage of the prevailing winds. In this system, each house was required to overlap a portion of its program with the house immediately in front of it, so that part of the façade would be confronted by the back-side of the house in front. Using conventionally orthogonal volumes, the view to the ocean would be met with a very aggressive wall, perpendicular to the main axis view.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaFrom that point we followed the idea of working with very fluid curved lines on the eastern extension of each house, so the views from each social area and bedroom would slide gently towards the ocean… spatial fluidity towards the ocean was maximized be this approach. Each main bedroom has a major front to the sea, and the overlapping between curves generates visuals for the other rooms.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaOn the west side, curves were also designed to gently lead to porches/terraces facing the sea that serve as access to each bungalow. The access to the main house is placed at the end of a very clear visual axis in the exterior layout. These terraces also serve as wind tunnels that generate freshness to the main social area of each house. Smaller curves and concrete slabs are placed at different heights to redirect and take advantage of air currents so every interior space has a natural wind flow which is very convenient of course in the tropics. Also the curves were designed to provide privacy between social areas.Save this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaThe formal language has generated several interpretations among the local community regarding the contextual elements that may have inspired the design from the beginning (waves, sails, shells, dunes, boats)…  The truth is that the origin of the curvilinear design was the result of an extensive spatial and visual analysis towards the sea. Of course during the design process the similarities with contextual elements were acknowledged and exploded to relate the project to its surroundings.Save this picture!South FacadeProject gallerySee allShow lessFolkwang Library / Max DudlerSelected ProjectsJacques Rougerie Foundation Competition WinnersArticles Share Area:  1062 m² Year Completion year of this architecture project 2011 Houses OB Houses / Seijo Peon ArquitectosSave this projectSaveOB Houses / Seijo Peon ArquitectosSave this picture!© Tamara Uribe ManzanillaHouses•San Bruno, Mexico CopyAbout this officeSeijo Peon ArquitectosOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcrete#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesWoodSan BrunoMexicoPublished on January 18, 2013Cite: “OB Houses / Seijo Peon Arquitectos” [Conjunto OB / Seijo Peon Arquitectos] 18 Jan 2013.
