Yes, fake economics is all the rage now in popular science. For the past 50 years fake economics has been doing to the free market what some immigrants of the last wave are doing to European women who happen to be walking all by themselves in secluded areas. Don’t get me wrong, the free market is actually a very good idea, when implemented according to the laws of proper economics, like the ones laid out in the Wealth Of Nations by Adam Smith that some people call the ‘Bible of capitalism’.
Alexander Nekrassov is a former Kremlin and government adviser. In an old Russian fairy tale, the tsar assigns a young warrior a series of impossible tasks in an attempt to have him killed so that he can marry the warrior's beautiful wife: "Go I know not where and fetch I know not what."
George Osborne, Britain's Chancellor of the Exchequer, has told an audience at the Royal Economic Society in London that Britain could become the richest nation in the world in the not so distant future. In case you're reaching for your reading glasses to check whether you may have misread what you have just read, don't bother.
@mirabarhillel It became very odd after the Japanese bought it. Just like ES and Indy became very odd once the Lebedevs bought them. Times and Sunday Times became very odd, to put it mildly, under Murdoch. British press is a mess.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
