Where Are The Economists Yachts?

For your edification I bring you two articles. Firstly, a series of predictions made by Saxo Bank economists. Secondly, and more sensibly a piece that rightly asks – where are the economists yachts?

Men Are Idiots …. Not Really New News…

So they took a look at the data on Darwin Award winners over the past 20 years, from 1995 to 2014.  This is excellent data to work with.

Oh Dear …. Part Three

Oil Versus Shale

With current pissing contest that is the US versus OPEC I thought it would be interesting to see at what point everyone begins to feel pain.  Knowing everyones pain point is always an interesting thing.
