Business Tesco’s chief hits out as profit warning hits shares The new boss of Tesco has attacked his predecessors for adopting “artificial” tactics to hit aggressive profit targets in the final few months of each financial year. Tesco’s shares plunged by 10 per cent to 168p on a warning this morning that the chain’s profit for the year to February will be no more than £1.4 billion, well short of the £1.94 billion that investors had been anticipating. Dave Lewis, chief executive, said his efforts to turn around the business were costing £500 million. He conceded: “It’s been a difficult time for Tesco – none of us would argue about that.”

Hello World, Once Again – Drive on the Left Relaunch Post You know that saying that you should dress for the job you want, rather than the job you have? We take it to heart and have a closet full of elegant clothes to prove it. But in the 18 months we’ve been running Drive on the Left, we’ve found that we’ve outgrown our little homespun design, and our aspirations for the site and for our futures just don’t match the clothes our website had on. We blame it on the trifecta of: total and utter lack of design skills, our judgement that HTML looks vaguely like Finnish, and our preference for booking plane tickets over fighting with WordPress. What is a financial instrument? Relevant to ACCA Qualification Papers F7 and P2 Let us start by looking at the definition of a financial instrument, which is that a financial instrument is a contract that gives rise to a financial asset of one entity and a financial liability or equity instrument of an other entity. With references to assets, liabilities and equity instruments, the statement of financial position immediately comes to mind. Further, the definition describes financial instruments as contracts, and therefore in essence financial assets, financial liabilities and equity instruments are going to be pieces of paper. For example, when an invoice is issued on the sale of goods on credit, the entity that has sold the goods has a financial asset – the receivable – while the buyer has to account for a financial liability – the payable. Another example is when an entity raises finance by issuing equity shares.

10 things to know about Swedish food #1 Lingonberries go with anything Just like ketchup and mustard, lingonberry jam is widely used to accompany a variety of dishes, from meatballs and pancakes to porridge and black pudding (blodpudding). But despite its sweetness, it is rarely used on bread. Thanks to the Right of Public Access (Allemansrätten), which gives everyone the freedom to roam and enjoy nature, many Swedes grow up picking lingonberries in the forest, and using these tiny tart red fruits to make a jam-like preserve. #2 Pickled herring – centre of the smorgasbord

16 October 2015 - Bridge of Spies: Spielberg's take on the Cold War Spielberg Takes on the Col War in 'Bridge of Spies'Mark Jenkins (NPR) Your country may be wrong, Steven Spielberg's Bridge of Spies sadly admits. But it maintains that a solid American family man can always be trusted. In the Cold War, as at home, father knows best. That father is Spielberg regular Tom Hanks, or rather James Donovan, who presents himself as a plain-talking, uncomplicated insurance company lawyer. David Smith's EconomicsUK.com Austerity myths revisited Posted by David Smith at 01:00 PM Category: Thoughts and responses My piece on Friday, The Myth of Abandoned Austerity, has attracted quite a lot of interest. It had a simple aim - to demonstrate that fiscal consolidation, deficit reduction, continued throughout the parliament, alongside recovery. Simon Wren-Lewis, a professor of economics at Oxford, devoted a blog post to it, here. Jonathan Portes, director of the National Institute of Economic and Social Research, was typically condescending, tweeting that I was "confused (& confusing)".
