    A shortage of computer chips is the latest challenge to the global economy

    Metal-Oxide semiconductor transistors are arguably the most manufactured artefact in human history and there is now a global shortage.

    We need about a trillion chips per year but demand has outstripped the supply.

    Radio 3.0 - the live chat room apps are coming

    Radio 3.0 - the live chat room apps are coming

    First there was broadcast and streaming, then podcasts and now live online chat shows from apps like Clubhouse.

    The next step in making traditional media channels available to everyone. It will not always be good but it should fill in a gap for more focussed audio broadcasts for those that want to listen and contribute.

    How unicorns turn into donkeys

    How unicorns turn into donkeys

    Unicorns are startups that rapidly become valued at over $1 billion, sometimes those valuations prove to be wrong especially when a business casts itself as a fintech disruptor in order to attract venture capital investments that was actually a regular business with a persuasive CEO and a good backstory. This is the story of Greensill Capital - the super abridged version.

    In this story you will hear about small suppliers being hard done, you will hear about supply chain financing and you will hear about big investments and circular dealing.

    A big trend in City developments - micro apartments

    A big trend in City developments - micro apartments

    Mark Twain once offered this piece of investment advice, “Buy land, they don’t make it anymore”, but owning land is not only an economic goal, it remains a dream for most who see it as part of becoming an adult.

    But it is not that simple, not that it ever was, but there are factors now that make owning a home more difficult despite most other parts of our lives getting easier. 

    The principal issue is not that we are going to run out of land as Twain might suggest, but rather that the demand to occupy the same piece of it is increasing. 

    Living in the heart of a city for those who also work there makes sense, but for young workers that would make the most of living in the city, they are the least likely to be able to afford it.
