Some (incoherent) thoughts on charities in Wales.
My review of the Leaders’ Debate held at Cardiff Met Uni on Monday, 4th April, 2016.
I wrote a series of articles on the political of business in Wales for the Business News Wales website and have added them here. Part 1 looks at the political landscape in Wales; Part 2, Welsh SME Business Support; Part 3, Economic Development; Part 4, The Cardiff Capital Region City Deal; and, finally, Part 5 summarises some of my thoughts on the political landscape in the run up to the Welsh Assembly 2016 election.
Is Wales’ narrative on the past denying it a rich resource – why have we chosen to forget such a fascinating heritage?
I ask: What’s occurrin’ with Finance Wales?
The recent expansion of the Business Wales programme – simply more hubris from the Welsh Government?
Earlier in the year I co-authored the report “Wales: Time for a Realistic Perspective” published in conjunction with Gorwel, an independent, non-partisan think-tank based in Cardiff. The report is serialised into pages here starting with the introduction Wales’ economy is not a basket case, and the background document that led to the report’s creation.
