Really interesting video about the potential domino of European countries, what the bailout means for the Greek, the French and the rest of the lot. “Shame on you, Europe, for needing the IMF to bail you out. Europe is like an African nation.”
Jonathon Jarvis’ excellent explanation of the you-know-what keeping so many up at night. Yes, I mean the credit crunch. I still vote for The Subprime Primer version, but this is just as clear and really well done visually.
With recession looming over most of the fun parts of life, Londoners are becoming increasinglycreative in finding ways of having fun that doesn’t cost much or is plain free. I just found a post at the Londonist showing a one-a-day list of events for the coming week. At London Is Free you will find a comprehensive guide to most of the free fun cultural events going on in our expensive capital. From Short&Sweet film screenings to knitting sessions, pretty much anyone will be able to find something up their alley. Among other establishments offering special entry discounts are the Arcola theatre with their Pay-What-You-Can Tuesday nights and Sadler’s Wells with their £5-£10 Sampled ticket scheme. Free love as such is an increasingly popular way of businesses attracting new clientele and creating better relationships with their existing customers. No more excuses for staying home these days!
