Mark Carney is the shining star of the world's central bank transfer market, so to speak. It may be arch to say that his move from the Bank of Canada to the Bank of England is similar to a footballer wanting to try his hand in the Premiership given the strength of the competition here.
I, like every parent, want my children to achieve more than I can imagine for them. It's why we need to ensure we send them into the working world with their eyes open and some experience under their belt.
I've discovered that the Bitcoin is a new, virtual currency. Unlike the peso, the real or the pound, it's not run by a central bank. It doesn't have a picture of the Queen or, in the case of Brazil, nice pictures of animals. Instead, it only exists online.
We've looked at today's workforce and compared it to the 1980s. The modern day workforce is older, more feminised and includes more disabled workers than it did in Thatcher's Britain. But employee benefits haven't evolved to reflect these changes at all, leaving today's workers financially exposed.
Today's unemployment numbers are not strong enough to definitely say the recovery is well on its way, but the figures are encouraging.
The report believes that as costs of production in developing countries go up - including wages and energy used - companies that carry out design in the UK will also employ workers here to make the goods. Additionally, they argue, the advent of new forms of technology will assist.
One of the perks of growing up, but also one of the biggest challenges, is making decisions about the future. Deciding what kind of job you want, whether you want to finish school or whether you want to go to university are huge choices to make.

Sometimes I am worried for the papers. No, I mean I am worried BY the papers. The Telegraph is a great read. That is the one that I would buy if I was...
The Labour Party leadership's embrace of welfare reform - set out in Ed Miliband's recent keynote speech on welfare to a select audience in Newham, East London - marks a victory for the right and describes another benchmark in the political degeneration of the party that created the welfare state.
Labour should be offering a clear and radical alternative to Tory despair and division. An alternative that inspires people to believe a Labour government could and will repair the serious damage being done to our communities and our economy by the Tory ideologues.
Desperate times call for desperate measures, but government schemes designed to help British businesses access much-needed finance are either not delivering, or not materialising. But British businesses don't need ethereal solutions, they need cash, and fast.
Home buying in the UK has been shaky business over the past few years. Many people who would love to own a holiday home are afraid of navigating these waters in the current economy. However, property experts have high hopes for 2013.
Cycling provides a brilliant antidote sickness and the costs associated with it. We recently discovered that 68% of people that use our National Cycle Network threw not a single sickie last year. Just by riding to work every day, we can improve our health to such an extent that we reduce the number of sick days we take to almost half.
The deal is symptomatic of the major changes happening in China with more and more companies looking to expand into new markets overseas. It's also evidence that London remains one of the world's premier cities for business and is regarded as the gateway to Europe.
Entrepreneurs operate in a 'Results Economy', not a 'Time and Effort Economy.' Even if you bill by the hour, you only get paid sustainably if clients are happy with the value you create. This means shifting your mindset from 'How long am I going to spend on this?' to 'What am I going to achieve?'
