The Mint Magazine is the home of fresh thinking in economics. We have opinion, analysis, and interviews as well as humour. We feature leading innovative thinkers on the economy from Nobel Prize winners to cutting edge investors featuring thinking that draws from social science, history and art as well as hard won experience. We believe that people in all parts of the economy can have important insights. Although our focus is the UK, we cover perspectives from around the world.
