What I do want is to open people's eyes to an option the UK must consider seriously. I am arguing that we should consider our most special relationship of all - the one we have with the United States. British-American trade was worth $214billion in 2012. That is the biggest bilateral trade relationship of any two countries anywhere.
The most vulnerable people in Europe are facing an "austerity winter" that could last a generation. Regrettably, we are just at the beginning. Cuts to social security and public services are combining with falling incomes and rising unemployment, such that millions are already struggling to make ends meet.
The ONS contains a wealth of information which provides glimpses of the way in which this country is changing. The labour market is shifting in a way that allows us to respond to the needs of the world around us...
The last time that Dr Carney took a seat in front of parliament's Treasury Select Committee the atmosphere was amiable and chatty... His appearance at this week's meeting was not entirely the antithesis of this, but it certainly represented a change. Unfortunately, at points during the questioning, Carney was his own worst enemy.
Everyone always says that renting a property is like money down the drain, but what if you just haven't got the cash to buy? Don't worry, because here you'll find a guide to the options available to you - so that you can afford to make that move.
Scotland is positioning itself as a potential hub for Islamic finance and ethical banking following a major conference held by leading Scottish law firm Tod Murrays and the Islamic Finance Council UK.
People's daily experiences and concerns differ enormously around the world. While a farmer in Angola prays for a good harvest, a manager in Greece worries about losing her job. And while a mother in Egypt comes to terms with life in a conflict zone, a doctor in Denmark struggles with work-related stress.
Let's face it: no matter how green or good it is, almost four quid for a lettuce is just wrong, no matter how many happy slugs have left their slimy trails in its crevices or how much grass-rich cow poo has fertilised the roots. Last week, a certain high-end 'organic' supermarket sold me a cheese at double the price I normally pay for it wholesale for the restaurant.
May it be recession, change of season or simply the change of interests, the buying behaviour of people does tend to diverge. How do we typically deal with the change of season in terms of securing our needs? Perhaps it will be a good idea to have a deeper understanding of our brainwork when it comes to acquiring merchandises.
Chinese tourists spent an incredible $102 billion travelling abroad last year, making them the world's biggest spenders on international travel, yet in the UK the full effect of this has yet to be felt.
Our solution is different to the one proposed by the Taxpayers' Alliance. Labour is committed to introducing a Jobs Guarantee, funded by a bankers' bonus tax and restricting pension tax relief for those on the highest incomes.
It is increasingly clear that Alex Salmond will say and do anything to get us to vote for independence. For months we have heard him say that there is £1.5trillion worth of reserves remaining in the North Sea. Yet this week it emerged that this is based on dodgy figures which show a fundamental misunderstanding of the sector. This is a blatant attempt to cook the books in order to fool the Scottish people.
Whilst many businesses struggle to survive in our fragile economy, payday lender Wonga is one of our few home grown success stories. Today they announced they are making more than £1m a week in profit- a 36% increase on last year. No one could begrudge a company that works hard to serve their customers and is rewarded for it. But money made in this industry comes at a heavy cost to our country.
The 10% Growth Campaign seeks to find out how micro businesses are funding their own growth, what help they think would improve or speed up that process and where their long-term expectations lie.
Britain has been gripped by tough economic measures for some time. However, instead of being damaged by such tough economic times, capitalism in Britain has heeded the words of Milton Friedman and Stuart Hall, and not wasted this crisis...
What is needed is a more active industrial policy. For too long, while other countries have supported industries where they have a competitive advantage, policy makers in the UK have used the country's bad experience with industrial policies in the 1970s to justify a hands-off approach.
