The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson

thetimes.co.uk — Who invented the computer? Or, for that matter, the microprocessor or the internet? If you're after a straightforward answer you are likely to be disappointed. In technology, more than most other fields, the romantic image of the mad inventor locked away in his basement simply doesn't chime with reality.

Forward Guidance: whatever happened to Mark Carney’s big idea?

edmundconway.com — Do you remember forward guidance? That's OK, not to worry - not many others do either. It was the policy launched to enormous fanfare by Mark Carney when he became Bank of England Governor in the summer of 2013. It was about as simple a rule as one could expect from a central bank.

THE SUMMIT by Ed Conway

kirkusreviews.com — Sky News economics editor Conway ( 50 Economics Ideas You Really Need to Know, 2009) covers the inside story of what really happened during the 22 days of the conference at Bretton Woods, New Hampshire, in July 1944.

Car loans are now more popular than mortgages

edmundconway.com — Did you realise that Britons are now more likely to take out big, long-term loans on cars than on housing? I have to confess, until I looked into the state of Britain's private debt markets for my Times column today, I didn't.

Britain needs to kick its addiction to debt

thetimes.co.uk — Our economic recovery is full of contradictions, thanks to the Bank of England's £375 billion rescue package Welcome to Britain. Where the economy is growing faster than any of the other advanced industrialised nations but living standards are cratering.

How to turn a victory into a muddle

medium.com — Lots of confusion out there over whether the Chancellor really has reduced Britain's EU bill today - or whether the whole thing is yet another statistical fudge. The short answer is that while this may look like fudge and smell like fudge, it isn't. Well, not entirely.

Paying their way?

edmundconway.com — This morning two professors from University College London published a report tallying the cost to the Exchequer of immigration. As occasionally happen when complex reports are inflicted on Fleet Street, the study elicited two vastly contrasting stories in today's newspapers. Version one, to quote the Guardian, was as follows: "Tax payments by European migrants far outweigh welfare".

It’s time to take stock in economics and end the flow of dodgy data

thetimes.co.uk — Do you know the difference between debt and deficits? OK, sorry, that's an insulting question. You're a Times reader - of course you do. The trouble is, you smart folks are very much in the minority.

You say welfare, we say…

medium.com — What goes through your head when you hear the word "welfare"? Chances are you're thinking of job centres, of unemployment benefit, of the housing allowances that fund the disadvantaged so they can live somewhere. Well it turns out you're only half right. The Government, it transpires, has a slightly different definition.
