Real Estate Mogul says a recession would bring employees back to the office out of fear for their jobs

Employees just might return to the office due to job security fears if the US enters a recession, real-estate tycoon Stephen Ross told Bloomberg.

He wants a recession

Someone on the conspiracy thread said that with market so low, crypto down significantly, savings in the toilet due to inflation, gas prices soaring and the housing market teetering, it did seem as though there was a plan to force people back to the grind.

The sad truth is more likely that there was way too much money floated out into the economy and the elites were well-prepared to vacuum it all up so they have almost all of it while your dollar is now worth less. Either way, it's back to the grind for many who thought they had invested or crypto-ed their way to an early retirement.

Without that, it's all doomed.

It's a lot more difficult and less satisfying trying to browbeat, belittle, and intimidate underlings who aren't in your physical presence. And the ability to do so is one of the cherished power perks of management.

Anyone who knows anything about how management works realizes this, and thus knew that management will always require at least a certain number of underlings to work onsite. Plus, they need to show off their plush offices to those who don't rate them. What's the fun of scoring a private office with a window and other perks if there's no one present to hate you for having it?

Office/work centers will not disappear- depends on the business or type of work. My work (professor/academic healthcare) will never be 100% in my office again and teaching will never be 100% in person again- although some always will be. Doesn’t threaten me at all.

R61 Beneficial to whom? First, we have no idea what society would look like if it had abandoned capitalism long ago for another system. Maybe things would be worse, maybe better. We just don’t know. I’ve seen people ironically argue that totalitarianism is beneficial to society based on how quickly the Soviet Union and China developed into major world powers from backwater peasant societies.

Secondly, the golden era of capitalism that everyone pines for is the post-war decades where we were the most socialist we’ve ever been, with very high taxes on the rich, massive new government spending and welfare programs, free college tuition, etc.

Capitalism drove slavery. It caused the Triangle Shirtwaist fire. It's the enemy of labor and only serves the greed of owners, not the needs or concerns of working. Capitalism steals labor and underpays workers. It's the reason a minimum wage worker needs to work 120 hours/week to afford a crappy apartment, 75% of their labor just lining the pockets of a landlord.

by Anonymousreply 80June 21, 2022 6:16 AM

His career started as a tax attorney, fashioning lucrative housing and commercial real estate deals for investors in government subsided programs. Among his big projects are Time-Warner Center and Hudson Yards.

It's no surprise that he would like to see employee asses back in Herman Miller Aeron chairs -- and in office cubicles, not spare bedrooms. COVID savaged commercial real estate and, as most commercial real estate leases are 3-5 years, the future holds still more leases that won't be renewed and that will be substantially reduced or negotiated in the leasors' favor.

No doubt he'll have his baby old hand in the pot of engineering some new government incentives to rechannel the commercial office space glut into other uses and find a way to make them all lucrative as fuck. His first cry is "get your ass back to work - in a Ross-leased office space", but he will have plenty of backup plans to keep the money streaming in in other ways.

Within 10 years, they started subletting entire floors to other companies and having their own people work from home or from an office campus in NJ. They did an analysis on the cost per person for office space and decided it was much more economical to have people working remotely. They'd had people working remotely worldwide for years but this was the first time it was kind of required.

R94 and R95 there were several schools that offered free tuition in the 40s-60s. For example, CUNY didn’t start charging tuition until 1976, and the University of California system didn’t start charging residents the equivalent of tuition until 1970. And most public universities during that period that did charge tuition were so cheap that you could pay for a year of college with a summer job thanks to heavy subsidizing by the taxpayers. And yes, the GI Bill too.
