Working From Home Is Driving Up Our Energy Costs. Should Employers Foot the Bill?

If you’re one of the estimated 4.7 million Americans who shifted to remote work during the COVID-19 pandemic, you may have noticed an unexpected spike in your energy costs as you spend more time consuming power at home, rather than at the office.

Úno 19, 2021

Born two years before Mao Zedong’s Communist Revolution, Jin Liqun was “sent down” by the party to help rural peasantry as a young man, and spent his teens farming paddy rice, wheat and cotton in the sunbaked countryside. In the evenings, he volunteered to keep the village accounts in a thatched hut by kerosene-lamp—a job which allowed him to indulge his passion of reading whatever dogeared Chinese and foreign texts he could procure. It was a “character-building” experience that set him on path to becoming president of the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), Jin says. “It gave me the experience of understanding rural people’s dreams, aspirations, their hardships, their challenges.”
