Mood of the Nation survey

Despite coronavirus affecting the world, its damaging impacts on the Mauritian economy and overall negative outlook for the year 2020, the Mauritian population remains very optimistic on the country’s future Mauritius is celebrating its independence day this coming Thursday and VERDE undertook a nationally representative survey of 400 people from the 24th Feb to the 8th of March 2020 to understand the overall mood of the nation. Overall, freedom and peace are the most important to the nation as they have a day to commemorate the independence of the country. The feeling of pride to be Mauritian is significantly strong scoring 95.8 on 100. Actually, scores, which were above 85 on 100, encompassed elements of progress which the country has made, the ability to live in a multi-ethnic country and in harmony and that human rights are respected and there is democracy. The nation also highlights their appreciation of independence day with 62.7% of respondents believing that independence day is still very significant to extremely significant today (scores of 4 and 5). With the demographic evolution, some important differences across generations’ beliefs, opinions and lifestyles have been published by VERDE since 2018. One thing is clear: the next generation, today’s children and teens, will likely be shaped by very different influences and forces than the generations that preceded it. Age differences shapes people’s view of society and their understanding can be some of the widest and most illuminating. 75.5% of respondents today believe that it is extremely important to preserve the memory of independence day. The figure turns out to be relatively consistent when we take younger generations (namely Gen Y and Z). The greatest achievement since independence according to respondents are (1) economic stability, (2) improved security in the country, (3) improvement in the education system and (4) improved infrastructure. Respondents however feel that more could still be done in matters of diversity and consolidating unity, in technological advancement, and more employment prospects.On the more foregoing context, the population believes that the economic growth and unemployment would be a major challenge over the coming year. Despite coronavirus affecting the world, and the negative outlook for the year 2020, the Mauritian population remains very optimistic on the country’s future. All scores relating to the optimism of the population scored close to 80 points on 100 (scores rebased on a scale of 0 to 100) with people believing that further progress will be achieved in terms of infrastructure, education, healthcare, surveillance and security, monitoring of crime and STRICTLY PRIVATE AND CONFIDENTIAL VERDE. 2020 governance.

Between the third in the league (Zlatanesque managed by Mahdi Ememdee) and the tenth in the league (Kev4life managed by Kev Aubeeluck) there is a difference of only 17 points.

Interestingly, in the next five gameweeks, the following games will provide opportunities for more points to be collected, especially as we get into a very busy period.       Next 5 Games                   GW 28 GW 29 GW 30 GW 31 GW 32             Liverpool Watford (A) Bournemouth (H) Everton (A) Crystal Palace (H) Man City (A)             Man City – Man Utd (A) Burnely (H) Chelsea (A) Liverpool (H)             Leicester Norwich (A) Aston Villa (H) Watford (A) Brighton (H) Everton (H)             Chelsea Bournemouth (A) Everton (H) Aston Villa (A) Man City (H) West Ham (A)             Man Utd Everton (A) Man City (H) Tottenham (A) Sheffield Utd (H) Brighton (A)             Tottenham Wolves (H) Burnley (A) Man Utd (H) West Ham (H) Sheffield (A)             Everton has a run of difficult games (Man Utd, Chelsea, Liverpool and Leicester) and players such as Richarlison and Caavert Lewin may have a number of managers selling them. Liverpool on its part could win the title by gameweek 31, if they will all their four games against Watford, Bournemouth, Everton and Crystal Palace. By contrast, if Man City lose in GW 29 in the Manchester derby, then Liverpool can win the league before. The fixtures of Man Utd are also quite tricky with trips to Everton and Spurs, and home games against City which sits in second and Sheffield Utd which is fighting for a European spot. After twenty seven Gameweeks, the highest point earners are De Bruyne (178 points), Salah (175 points), Alexander Arnold (163 points), Mane (160 points) and Vardy (156 points). Amongst defenders, Alexander Arnold, Robertson and van Dijk are the top three followed in fourth by Lundstram from Sheffield and Pereira from Leicester in fifth. Behind the trio of De Bruyne, Salah and Mane, Richarlison is well positioned with 129 points and costing 8.3. Son with 122 points is now out through injury. Mahrez and Grealish respectively have 120 and 116 points. Among the forwards, Vardy is highest ranked with 156 points although his current form is 2.0. Aubameyang continues to have a good season with Arsenal scoring 150 points, followed in third by Jimenez from Wolves with 138 points. “This season is being dominated by Liverpool which remain of course to win the EPL after a long waiting of 30 years. After recording 21 successive victories at Anfield, this is now a Premier League record, beating Man City side from 2011 to 2012, and equalled Liverpool’s own all-time record in the English top flight. If Liverpool win their next four games, regardless of second-placed City or anyone else’s results, they will lock up the title with seven matches to spare—beating the record of five, which City’s centurions share with the Man United side of 2000/01. City became the Premier League’s first centurions two years ago, finishing with 100. Liverpool are on course to smash that, sitting on 79 with 11 games left, with a possible 112 on the cards. They need another 22 points, which could be achieved with eight more wins, to break the record. Only Arsenal in 2003/04 have ever gone through a Premier League season without losing. Liverpool can become the second ‘Invincibles’ and have already recorded as many wins as Arsene Wenger’s Gunners, who drew 12 games that season” says Dirish K. Noonaram, founding partner of VERDE.
