James Moore: Some straight-talking sense from Davos

Outlook Earlier this week I highlighted how, despite constant whining, Britain’s financial services industry is doing rather well under the new, sterner, regulatory regime imposed since the financial crisis. The same is true globally.

Outlook Some good news for the Chancellor: unemployment has fallen again, to a six-year low. Moreover, the proportion of the part-timers who would like to be employed full time is also falling, to 16.2 per cent in the three months to November, down from 18 per cent  a year ago.

Outlook The City might be buying into the bright future for Tesco, as I highlighted yesterday. But the grocer still has a myriad of issues hanging over it as Panorama’s feature on the chain demonstrated. It was more entertainment than exposé, but isn’t it fun when two former executives who sat around the boardroom table together and palled around start taking shots at each other?
