Debt is a form of slavery and the Biblical message is one of release from slavery, of freeing of captives. It cannot be a mark of a civilised society that it is based on enslavement through debt.

If you've been mulling over the idea of creating some business cards of your own, then the following links should be able to provide you with some useful information:
It's easy to say that immigration has been in the news this week, but in modern Britain, immigration is always in the news. An Englishman's home is, w...
It is the best of times, if you're John Lewis, it is the worst of times, if you're Marks & Spencer. These two titans of British retail are going through very different experiences. John Lewis continues to grow robustly whereas poor M&S, despite the strength of its food business, desperately needs to turnaround its declining, core clothing business.
In the digital age, personal branding has never been more important. Whether it's the CEO of a large organisation, or the employee of a boutique brand, the way that people manage their online presence determines how they are viewed. In many ways, the prospect of being put under a digital microscope can seem daunting, but personal branding, if done properly, can be a great advantage.
Work from home schemes are posted all over the web and are particularly prevalent in the UK, USA and Canada, but are they all genuine? Many people who apply for work-at-home positions are struggling to make ends meet. Scams abound so it is important to be vigilant as to which are genuine and which are not. Crimes involving the weak, needy and disabled are particularly reprehensible.

When I was growing up I thought the sky was the limit. I was lucky. My parents were both entrepreneurs. They instilled in me the knowledge that I could support myself and earn my own money. Now I'm lucky enough to be working with other people hoping to realise the same dream.
I am passionate about entrepreneurs and encouraging them to follow their dreams and start their own businesses. That's one of the main reasons I agreed to go on Dragons Den. I've been running my own business now for 37 years and gained a lot of experience which I want to share with others.
Why are some products more successful and appealing than others? Which product features and design aspects influence the way we feel about products? And how can we leverage accumulating insights from behavioural science to improve product offerings?
Fundamentally, the idea with Vayable's pop-up HQ is not merely to sell the platform but to demonstrate something physical about company values. Companies that build products wrapped around activities afford themselves the privilege to organise events that are very relevant to their target market's interests.
Sometimes we make snap decisions, the importance and significance of which only becomes clear over time. But from that spontaneous beginning, Walk the Walk and our knowledge of breast cancer has come so far. Best of all, breast cancer is now on the brink of becoming a treatable disease.
A couple of these recent flotations - I'm thinking of Facebook and, in the UK, the Royal Mail - have given me pause for thought at the economic models that underpin them. In short, I think they are a rip-off. Why? Because they miss a chance to have the stake-holders investing in the company as shareholders.
Whilst we have taken huge strides in terms of diversity and gay equality in the UK, there is clear evidence that homophobia still persists in the workplace. A recent study by Gaydar revealed that 43% of gay men have experienced homophobia at work.
