The Bigger Picture: The psychology of investing and the madness of markets
Tim Price of Price Value Partners looks at the psychology of money and investment as discussed in The Psychology of Money by Morgan Housel. With reference to Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett, he discusses why patience, time and compounding are the investor's friend. He gives his opinion on the current irrational state of markets, particularly those linked to tech companies from the viewpoint of a patient, value investor concerned with absolute rather than relative returns. And he explains why he so often invokes the films of John Carpenter when discussing modern markets.

The Bigger Picture: UK unemployment, UK/EU negotiations & unintended consequences
Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University looks at the Chancellor's new Kickstart scheme to get young people into work and asks whether it's a plan for the future or the past. He assesses whether there could be a breakthrough in UK/EU negotiations and explains why this one will not go right down to the wire. And, in the light of American left-wing protests, he wonders if - by the law of unintended consequences - the protesters might not bring about that which they least want.
