The Embedded Economist (series)
1: The Power of Dissent
Writing as James Ian McKay, ‘The Embedded Economist’ is a senior economist from one of the world’s largest international organisations. In his first exclusive piece for the Strategist, McKay looks at the so-called ‘Arab Spring’, and asks whether similar waves of dissent could spread south and east – to sub-Saharan Africa, or to India and China. He asks what the Arab uprisings have achieved, and explores the complex role of mobile communications and the internet in public protest.
The Shadow System
What’s worth $60 trillion and rising, is largely unregulated, and is sucking wealth out of national borders? The shadow financial system is now a major part of international finance.
