The quality of European universities and their campuses not only affects policy agendas of education, research and innovation. It also affects Europe's position in the global competition for the best students and professors (the global 'battle for brains'), and the wider competitive advantage, productivity, profitability and sustainable development of Europe.

I'd never wanted anything like I wanted to be a writer. I remember spending whole days sitting around and moping about how I'd never be good enough/would never manage it/would never get to be an actual writer. I realise now that this was somewhat pathetic... but it did half lead to some very vague experiences of publishers before the competition.

Garden Capitalism

It seems that studying Plato, master of the philosophical analogy has rubbed off on me. In a system in which the interlinking of government and capitalism has created a politically endorsed economy, the original foundations have been oft neglected and I wanted to get back to how, at least in theory, our public and private sectors interlink.

It's good for the economy if action by regulators helps drive consumer demand for the best businesses, supporting their growth, incentivising efficiency and innovation. That, obviously, is what Which? has been about since the 1950s. But is the present system of consumer protection up to the job?

Should we crash the pound to revive manufacturing? I'm not convinced. I am persuaded that we need to do a lot more to inspire British business leaders to think long term and to care about building high quality companies that can endure.

Margaret Heffernan | Posted 25.05.2014 | UK
Margaret Heffernan

Let's not forget that heated, intense competition is what brought us the banking crisis. Competition between banks - to be the biggest, the most profitable - stoked the selling of inappropriate mortgages, PPI and interest rate manipulation. Competition between traders or between salespeople - many of whom are measured daily by their earnings, with some firms posting these numbers publicly - is precisely what drove otherwise good people to do bad things.
