Bite size brilliance

The Economist is rightly famed for its clear, concise use of the English language. The Espresso bulletin is the best possible example of how this hard-earned reputation was earned in practice. It is frankly amazing how much relevant information the editorial team manages to fit neatly into the short summaries of major developments around the world. Anyone ‘on the run’, as I am all too frequently, can get an extraordinarily comprehensive overview of world affairs and their potential impact on the markets (with latest exchange rates etc. all indicated) from these 8 brief pages.

Beyond Brexit. What’s touching my fellow global citizens lives?

Theresa May coined it “Citizen’s of nowhere”. Then Espresso is the caffeine antidote to this misguided label. We are all stakeholder citizens of this amazing planet which is subjugated by less than amazing human behaviour. Espresso tells me about the amazing and the less amazing from all corners of the Earth. Who’s telling me about what is going on in Brunei? That they’ve decided that Stoning gay people to death is an acceptable part of their justice system and an acceptable approach to human rights in this 21st century.

Time efficient

I really miss reading my hard copy of the Economist. But being time short and regularly travelling, it’s great to get a daily briefing, and also to get via email, recommended articles from the weekly print version which I can read on line . Been reading the Economist one way or another since I was 17. Now 73 !!!
