Professor Tim Evans of Middlesex University asks whether, in the wake of the pro-democracy success in the recent elections, Hong Kong has become the new Berlin Wall. He also explains why EU rules mean the NHS has long been "for sale". And he looks at the shakiness of Labour's northern "Red Wall" in a time of shifting political loyalties.

Modern Mindset

Modern Mindset: The Age of Ethical Investing
Adam Cox is joined by financial adviser, Tim Morris, to discuss the growing trend for Ethical Investing. Tim explains that due to climate, environmental, and controversial policies many investors are choosing investments that are ethical and sustainable; that avoid companies involved in things like military funding and pollution, or those that contribute to poor health such as tobacco. They explore why some governments, such as in the US, appear to be in defiance of this positive trend – and share their predictions for the future of ethical investing.

Policy Matters: Economics, the media and policymakers – how can economists communicate their research more effectively?
In this episode of Policy Matters, hosts Franz Buscha and Matt Dickson talk to Gemma Tetlow, Chief Economist at the Institute for Government. Gemma was previously the economics correspondent at the Financial Times and also worked for many years as an academic economist and so has broad experience of economists’ work from a variety of angles. Firstly, Gemma discusses the work of the Institute, and how the demands that Brexit has placed on the government has hindered domestic policymaking. Given her experience as both a researcher and economic journalist, Franz and Matt go on to discuss with Gemma how economics is reported in the media, the difficulty of explaining the complexities of the economy in ‘public-friendly’ ways and what economists can learn in this area from other sciences. The discussion then turns to thinking about how economists interact with policymakers and how this has evolved over time, before Gemma talks about the policies that she would like to see considered in public and policy debate, whoever is developing the domestic policy agenda in the post-Brexit UK.
