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.
The theme of this issue is international institutions, values and economics. We have a focus on the increasing influence of China in the global political economy but also look wider: globotics – AI plus a new phase of globalisation, measuring poverty the Bill Gates way, transnational corporations, Brasil's shift to the right, revisiting Greece’s relationship with the EU, taking control of money, US politics and the green new deal and more.
50 years since the creation of the Nobel Economics Prize, we also feature the only winner whose work has fundamentally supported social democracy.
And we also talk to a 'dreamer' in the US while we can't avoid Brexit as Verity is faced with a smelly cheese crisis.
