Travails of Post-Truth Politics

Read More

Written by Ben Reiff I think everyone is missing the point. We’re all shocked and we’re all horrified. We can’t believe that someone so under-qualified and so outwardly racist and misogynistic is now in charge of the most powerful country in the world. We can’t believe that the American public could democratically elect someone like this; they must all be racists and misogynists themselves. We’re all terrified of what’s to…

The Myth of Luck – A Response to Robert H. Frank

Read More

This article is a critique of a lecture hosted by the LSE, however, it has been written in such a way that the argument being critiqued should be clear enough even to those who did not attend. On the 7th of December, I attended a lecture given by Robert Frank at the London School of Economics and Political Science on his new book “Success and Luck: Good Fortune and the Myth…

Puzzling Over Productivity

Read More

Written by Saskia Neibig On Wednesday, the Chancellor of the Exchequer used the word “productivity” 15 times during his Autumn Statement to parliament, announcing some investment in infrastructure to compensate for a bleak post-Brexit economy. His Government has done little to suggest that they are committed to actually improving productivity. Philip Hammond, who has been May’s Chancellor since July, initially supported Brexit but campaigned to Remain after former Prime Minister…

Written by Gil Caldwell-Dunn Gone are the days where consumers mindlessly consume, and are fully under the influence of a brand’s every move. Instead, the latest generation is a highly interconnected online network of consumers, that demand everything at the press of a button (think Netflix, Uber and Amazon’s drones).

Take Your Narcissism Elsewhere

The Left isn’t Responsible for Brexit and Donald Trump It is natural that in the aftermath of the events of the last six months, commentators have done their best to find patterns through which to make sense of the world. Tempting though it is to pivot the narrative onto oneself, it is perhaps more helpful to focus on the realities of the last 16 years rather than self-flagellate. In the…

Gwyn Digests: The John Lewis Café, Oxford Street

Read More

It seems to be an unwritten rule for London’s non-London students that when your parents visit, you go to Oxford Street. This is because no matter how much you try and convince yourself you are now a true, suave, luxurious Londoner, whenever your parents come you once again return to the spotty teenage being of your youth. Your parents coming means being reminded of the self you left behind when…

Interrogating Trump’s Taxes

Read More

Written by Matt Ehret Following the astonishing election of Donald Trump, stock market panic ensued. As the dust has settled, markets have reacted more calmly, with a number of Wall Street stocks opening higher despite disastrous market predictions. Trumps appeasing victory speech, which avoided the contentious and misogynist tone which was a fundamental basis of his campaign, instilled confidence in traders. His speech indicated the potential for a more subdued…

Taryana Odayar, former Executive Editor. In the opening scene of Boom, Bust, Boom, a documentary starring ex-Monty Python member Terry Jones, Jones is seen standing in the middle of Wall Street where he infamously proclaims, “This film is about the Achilles heel of capitalism, how human nature drives the economy to crisis after crisis time and time again.” The Minskyian notions at the heart of this proclamation points to the…
