New and updated content gives insight into the latest developments and recent global events affecting individuals, businesses and society, including:

  • The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic – and measures taken by governments to limit economic damage.
  • Analysis of the impact on inflation (and supply and demand issues) in the aftermath of COVID and the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and the reaction of governments and central banks to these issues.
  • Renewed focus on the climate emergency – considering economic causes and government policies to tackle global warming.
