Stephen King: The UK economy won't rebalance until we recognise the world has changed

Outlook: The UK didn't go into recession alone, and exports therefore were unable to make any headway even as imports collapsed

Stephen King: Scarce resources should give all governments serious food for thought

We live in a world of ultimately scarce resources. The increase in global demand for the basics of human life is likely to outpace any increase in supply

Stephen King: Never mind the Jet Blue flight attendant, what about the economy, stupid?

Outlook: The US is showing signs of traumatic economic weakness, not seen in the post-war period. Avoiding the doubledip would not be a sign that the trauma is over

Stephen King: Western economies are still in danger of sinking under an ocean of self-created debt

As the UK's new Government delivers unprecedented austerity, the great deleveraging will affect the UK as much as everyone else

Under the Dome, By Stephen King

Stephen King first had the idea for this novel in 1976, began it, abandoned it, and did not return to it until 2007, when he finally felt confident of tackling the technical problems that his theme posed.

The Passage, By Justin Cronin<br />Feed, By Mira Grant

Clearly, those who make the more dubious bits of public policy need to be better acquainted with the works of George Romero and Stephen King. The powers-that-be in Justin Cronin's The Passage have no idea of how to avoid being in one of those stories that does not have a happy ending. Sending expeditions to cursed South American temples in search of immortality is never a good idea; nor is injecting new viruses into death-cell prisoners and little girls.

Stephen King: Back to the future with austerity measures that will test our tolerance

The tricky issue is that this Government, like those in the Seventies, may not have the mandate to deliver its austerity measures

Stephen King: To stimulate or not to stimulate? That is the question

Who is right? The Americans want to see other parts of the world offering more economic stimulus. The Europeans think there's been too much stimulus already.

The Passage, By Justin Cronin

Is this vampy doorstopper really one for the ages?

Midnight in a Perfect Life, By Michael Collins

Weird, but not that wonderful

Stephen King: We await the day Western nations opt to default by stealth

To continue living beyond their means, Western nations can simply sell their prized assets to those nations with deep pockets

Stephen King: The Office for Budget Responsibility must be prepared to defy the fiscal consensus

The Treasury will no longer have the opportunity to redefine the economic cycle or fiddle the economic forecasts to suit its own purposes

Stephen King: Politicians in Europe are fighting back against the domination of the markets

Action to 'improve' the functioning of a market can sometimes make the situation worse, not better

Alan Wake: The interview



Following a recent PR event where members of the press were driven into the woods in the middle of the night, ambushed by knife wielding maniacs driven by dark forces and chased until a flare drove off our pursuers, we got chance to speak to Oskari Hakkinen, Head of Franchise Development at Remedy Entertainment, about Alan Wake.
