What Does 'independent' Mean ?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm new here and thought it was about time I posted something.I was just reading in the news blog about so called 'independent' group 'item club'. What does independent mean I wonder when this group is sponsored by

Ernst and Young.

It's a shame that academics can be influenced by sponsorship produce soundbite articles for a newspaper.

What do others think of this.

Be gentle ;)

Fair enough point with E&Y but the Item Club is probably worth looking at - they've made some decent calls in the past.

On the E&Y website it says "Untied sponsorship by Ernst & Young ensures that ITEM's forecasts are independent of any political, economic or business bias. All forecasts, analyses and commentary are those of the ITEM Club and the views expressed are not necessarily those of Ernst & Young."
