My conversation today with @ThatAlexWoman & @SimonMcCoyTV on @gbnews about #Grenfell cladding is online. we discussed how - according to their testimonies to Inquiry - contractors involved never wondered why the cladding used was cheaper than alternatives https://t.co/ggPn67vB7b

Great! I'm sure you'll find it the perfect late night read. Or in the early morning, on holiday, riding a train, while milking a goat, doing origami .. OK maybe the audiobook might more suitable sometimes https://t.co/3Tlx3jBlK6

In case you're wondering, no one at Greensill discussed a job with me. I'm not saying they realized I couldn't be bought. But I'm pretty sure they knew from my reporting that I'd be sceptical about their payment methods https://t.co/FinJnPN5eK

@tombergin_News I'm really enjoying Free Lunch Thinking. I love how you expose how sloppily data is used the questionable assumptions upon which key tenets of economic theory rely. It's also extremely readable and entertaining - high praise for an economics book!

🎧 New BTT Podcast It was great to chat to @tombergin_News about his new book, ‘Free Lunch Thinking’. Economics is often misunderstood as a practical science and this conversation definitely sheds some light on the flaws of economic theory.

expert tells parliament Greensill was based on deception. Cameron said he had no clue but i reported this in 2019 (prompting a failed Greensill libel action). so what due diligence on prospective employers does a former PM do? https://t.co/fUOLbQJEh3

I would thoroughly recommend for anyone looking for a fresh (and evidence-based) reassessment of the value of economics as a basis for many political policies. Really enjoyed the book and the chat. Thanks again @tombergin_News https://t.co/ab18DAjsZs

This month's Management Today @MT_editorial did a nice piece on my book '#FreeLunchThinking: How Economics Ruins the economy'. In the interview I talk about not just what's wrong with economics but also what it might be.. https://t.co/yDJ8hyiTb4
