Newsnight Economics Reporter

Recommended Posts

From Guido.


BBC Newsnight has appointed a new Economics reporter following Steph Flanders' departure.

Duncan Weldon now fills the role, having stood as a Labour candidate in 2010, as well as being Harman's economic adviser and a TUC bod.

Might be of interest to those who watch the telly.

EDIT I've edited the thread title as I erroneously described Weldon as the political editor, apologies for confusion.

From what I recall, he is sensitive to the problems of the younger generations and iirc broadly HPC.

(I have him on my list of closet hpcers)

Just read this by him, a month before he got the Newsnight gig.

Seems about right to me, for what I see as banks deleveraging risk onto others whilst improving their own situation, for future lending on lower asset prices.

What credit boom? Bank lending & the recovery
27 Feb 2014, by Duncan Weldon in Economics

As the Bank of England have acknowledged, the current recovery has been associated with a decline in the household savings ratio (the percentage of their income that households save in aggregate).
