Trump’s legacy – nightmare debt

November 18th, 2018 by Stephen Archer | View Comments

You earn 50k per annum but you overspend by 2k each year. This has been a habit and your debts are now 55k. Interest on your debt is 1,650 each year and is added to the debt. How does that feel and what would you be doing about this? To answer this perhaps ask that…

As we approach the centenary of the end of WW1 it’s a reminder that many people at the time said ‘never again’. But it did happen again. It was not quite history repeating itself but in the case of the next economic crisis there will be a lot of history repeating itself. Spoiler alert, the…

I consciously took a breather from blogging last year. Looking back over the past eight months it’s interesting to reflect what I predicted correctly and incorrectly. Here comes the mea culpa: Germany did return Merkel to power, just and May was returned to power just. I was wrong to suggest that Corbyn would be removed…

Tornado storm

A few months ago when I wrote on this topic the political and economic climate seemed rather precarious if not downright scary.  But normality, moderation and stability are returning sooner than would have been thought possible at the start of this year.

December 17th, 2016 by Stephen Archer | View Comments

Stay with me, this piece will end on a positive note. 40% of business leaders (according to a survey in the Financial Times) do not believe that the UK will retain access to the European market after Brexit. So presumably the same people believe that the other 27 European countries do not want access to…
