... monetarism was then known) to kick around. The point being that the quantity theory of money was so easily refutable that even undergraduates who were not specialising in economics could be expected to demolish it. Less than a decade (and with inflation peaking at 25%) later Milton Friedman, one of that theory's leading advocates, was on BBC television promoting his book and TV series Free to Choose.4 3 The quantity theory of money was becoming the new orthodoxy, capturing the Conservative Party en route. Not that its appeal to the Tory right was terribly surprising; for what the theory said was that to reduce inflation politicians should cause a big recession and make lots of the working ...

... who could certainly be trusted to take whatever measures were necessary to protect the interests of the rich and super rich during the recession. Brown had proven himself more than amenable to furthering the interests of News International. What seems to have persuaded Murdoch to ditch him was the Tories' readiness to take measures to inflict serious financial damage on the BBC by freezing the tv licence, weakening Ofcom and waving through the Murdochs' take- over of BSkyB. It was not that Brown would have balked at such measures so much as that he did not realise how 2 According to one of Davies's sources, the seriously weird James 'is so paranoid that he keeps a gun under his bed ...

... specific conspiracy theories operating in the contemporary period. The Social Anthropology research track aims to broaden the geographical scope of C&D as well as add to its repertoire of methodological approaches.4 It really should be called the Conspiracy Theories and Democracy Project, because it is conspiracy theories and their apparent impact on democracy which they are concerned about. The BBC report on the launch of the project was titled 'Are conspiracy theories destroying democracy? '; 5 and one of the project's three directors, Sir Richard Evans, began a piece about it with this: 'There is a crisis of trust in modern societies. Public confidence in the central institutions of representative democracy has been declining since the 1980s ...

... But some of it they have had to accept. And dragging their feet vis--vis the British domestic economy is their revenge. And, as far as I can see, not a single economic commentator has named it. Dallas '63 W e are going to get a torrent of bullshit about the Kennedy assassination in the next couple of months. BBC Radio 4 contributed a piece called 'The Reunion' in which a group of people who were in Dallas in 1963 when it happened recalled the events. One of those was Hugh Aynesworth, then with the Dallas Morning News. I didn't listen to the programme but I think we may assume that its host, Sue Macgregor, did not ...

... , detecting in all this emphasis on boozing, munching and horizontal daydreaming nothing very 'new economy' at all, rather the time-hallowed behaviour of the public-school layabout. The dot.com boom went smash in the early part of 2000. Absurd valuations collapsed, and a string of (briefly) famous names disappeared: boo.com, clickmango and others. Wrote BBC business reporter Jorn Madslien on March 9 2010: 'How we all laugh as we look back at a time when the talk was more important than the walk, and when scruffy entrepreneurs were courted by greedy venture capitalists, their ties hidden in their pockets. The crash was even more severe on Wall Street, and in an ominous foretaste of ...

Of one thing we can be certain: it was Dennis Robertson who moved Polly Peck funds from Britain to Cyprus. Postscript: a licence to kill? In 2009, the BBC security correspondent Gordon Corera 3 Elizabeth Forsyth says: 'I must make one matter clear, I was instrumental in handing documentation which I had been given during my investigations into this rather lurid business but neither I, nor Mr. Nadir's family, were involved in the construction of the website on which the documents have been published.' 4 ...

Michael Morton contacted me to let me know such speculation had already been done by Andrew Marr in 1993 on BBC television; and that the scenarios discussed by Marr and various interviewees had originally been published in his magazine Alternate Worlds in January 1995.2 Very kindly, Michael Morton supplied a copy of the transcript of that Andrew Marr piece.

Iraq invasion: tenth anniversary 30 <http://nickchirls.com/my-time-at-lehman> M onday 18 March was quite a day for those of us against the invasion of Iraq.

Essentially: US politicians chose to believe fabricators and ignored intelligence which said there were no WMDs. ...

... In practice, in this instance, the cautious, heavily conditional estimates produced by the Joint Intelligence Committee were strengthened by the Prime Minister's assistants in the Cabinet Office, Alastair Campbell and Jonathan Powell, who had the final editing rights on the notorious 'dodgy dossier'. Hence the great row about 'sexing-up' which led to the upheaval at the BBC and the big fight with the government a fight in which, as Lord Hutton showed us, the claim that the estimates had been 'sexed-up' was true. Above the intelligence analysts in the UK intelligence bureaucracy were the senior officers of the DIS and MI6, who had to take political factors into consideration: in this instance, ...
