"Inclusive growth" is a frequently heard term as countries grapple with the recent rise in inequality - even as poverty has fallen sharply over the past two and a half decades worldwide. To give the term meaning requires fashioning growth policies that reduce inequality without resorting to harmful protectionism.
Are free trade agreements the answer for the UK and its future with Europe? Linda Yueh explores Britain's negotiations with the EU will take years. But so do trade agreements - so it makes sense to start talks with the US, China, Japan, as well as the Commonwealth, which includes India, Canada, Australia, and others now.
The UK-China relationship will be hurt by the decision to delay and potentially halt Hinkley Point. The "Golden Era" of bilateral relations will suffer a setback, as China will perceive this decision as a loss of face. But while our short-term economic relationship will take a hit, there will be longer-term benefits.
The European Fund for Strategic Investments (EFSI), commonly referred to as the Juncker Plan, is off to a good start, stimulating pledges from not only European but also non-EU countries like China. The plan is to raise a considerable sum of €315bn over three years by working with the European Investment Bank (EIB), which will...
Amidst the uncertainty around what will happen after Britain's historic vote to leave the European Union, there is some clarity about the next steps. Boris Johnson, the prominent Leave campaigner and PM contender, has set out his views in a newspaper article in which he says that Britons will have the right to live and work in the EU.
Things could be much worse than they presently are. In the century to 1950, world tariffs averaged 20 to 50 per cent. Now they average 1 to 3 per cent. But protectionism ain't dead yet. We've seen it aplenty from populist presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.
Alphabet, Google's parent company, this month briefly surpassed Apple as the most valuable listed business in the world - at more than $550bn. In the long term, however, both companies may find it hard to hang on to the top spots as dominant western
This episode doesn't smell to me like apocalypse now. But what we are seeing are the structural weaknesses of the post-2008 recovery, and we're getting a glimpse of what a real crash could look like. True, the FTSE is now down over 20% and officially in bear-market territory, where share prices are expected to keep falling.
Although the state in China is no longer all encompassing as it had been during the pre-1979 centrally planned period, it still reaches into numerous areas of the economy, notably through its continuing ownership of state-owned enterprises. As a result, China poses a paradox in that it has incomplete property rights and rule of law which are thought to be essential for growth.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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
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".
