Investment in American infrastructure is falling
IT IS not a number to tweet about. President Donald Trump plans to plough $1trn of spending into America’s crumbling infrastructure. And a dearth of capital is not a problem: investors are keen on such assets. But investment seems to be falling. Government infrastructure spending in the second quarter fell to 1.4% of GDP, the […]

A firm that shares a name with its founder earns higher profits
A GOOD business name can be pricey. An entrepreneur looking for the perfect one can hire a naming agency to offer ideas, but that can cost tens of thousands of dollars. That may explain why many founders follow the example set by the American president and name their businesses after themselves. A recent article* by […]

The hubris of ten-year budgets
IN February of 2001, Alan Greenspan, then still the chairman of the Federal Reserve, and still called the “Maestroâ€�, testified to the Senate Budget Committee.

Where might the next crisis come from?
TEN years ago, BNP Paribas, a French bank, temporarily suspended dealings in three funds, citing â€œthe complete evaporation of liquidity in certain market segments of the US securitisation marketâ€�. Many people treat this as the start of the credit crunch but one can trace it back to the need for Bear Stearns to rescue hedge funds […]

The problem of contaminated air on planes
AT 30,000 feet the skies may be clear, but the oxygen certainly is not. Anyone who has wheezed his way through a long plane journey will know that cabin air is hardly pristine. Nearly all aircraft draw in air by way of the plane’s engine compressor. It is common for a small amount of oil […]

Why an eight-hour bus ride from Los Angeles to San Francisco might beat a flight
THERE is a new way to travel between Los Angeles and San Francisco. At $230 for a round trip, it may not be cheaper than flying, but at least it is slower. Cabin is an interesting experiment; an attempt to compete with airlines by promising a better night’s sleep. Flying between the two cities may […]

Dame Helen Alexander, former chief executive of The Economist Group, died on August 5th
ROLE models for women in business are still too rare, not least in Britain. Last November an independent review backed by the government urged FTSE 100 companies to raise the share of women on their boards from 27% to 33% by 2020. Sadly, that push this week lost one of its leading champions, Helen Alexander, […]
