Is nothing sacred? The Bank of England is saying that data from companies like Spotify and Netflix could provide it with a good insight into how we're feeling, which might give a more nuanced understanding of how the economy's doing.
The Bank's point here is that we actually have a lot of that kind of information at our disposal already – or at least companies like Netflix and Spotify do. They're huge sources of data about what we like and dislike – just think about it, Netflix knows what you want to watch before you do.
So fine, it does feel a little bit like watching your dad dancing to Skepta, but maybe they've got a point.
