Book Review: Bean Counters by Richard Brooks
In the financial crash and subsequent financial scandals, The Big Four accountancy firms have largely escaped censure. In a fascinating new book, Bean Counters: The Triumph of the Accountants and How They Broke Capitalism, investigative journalist Richard Brooks highlights how far the global giants have moved from traditional auditing and exposes their conflicts of interests and inadequacies which, he says, pose a considerable threat to financial stability.

IEA: Brexit and the Future of Global Trade
Today we’re joined by the Advisory Board of our International Trade and Competition Unit, made up of world-renowned experts in trade policy – including Sir Lockwood Smith, John Weekes and Alan Oxley, who join us today, along with ITCU’s Director Shanker Singham. Interviewed by the IEA’s Madeline Grant, they give us a global view of Britain’s place in the world – and their prognosis of how our negotiations have progressed so far. They examine best practice in a range of different areas, including negotiating tactics, and discuss what an optimal free trade arrangement with the EU would look like. They also lay out some of the potential dangers and obstacles Britain may face in reaching this outcome. Finally, they consider how an independent Britain could advance the cause of free trade on the world stage.

Modern Mindset: Legal Minds
Adam Cox talks to Saleem Sheikh, Senior Partner at GSC Solicitors LLP, a City-based commercial law firm. When he was younger, Saleem had his sights set on being a pilot; but a family tragedy saw his career trajectory instead take a turn towards law. He discusses how entrepreneurs and business owners need to plan for the worst case scenarios we’d all rather not think about – such as bereavement and illness – and his role in helping with that. He also talks about the need for a trusted advisor – in business and in life – to help navigate life’s pitfalls, and why we need to be communicating with the next generation to create legacies that can genuinely last.
