James Purnell speech: We mean power | 2.0.2 ...
What is the point of a lecture by a politician in a university? Seventy years ago that would have seemed an odd question. William Beveridge and Richard Tawney were both teaching here. Politics and academia seemed intertwined. Beveridge inspired Labour’s welfare state, Tawney did the  same for our post-war education policy. Who are the Tawneys or Beveridges of today? I sometimes feel as if politicians and academics are sitting in different corners of the same room, politicians guarding their monopoly on power, academics the perfection of their knowledge. As with so much else, I blame Margaret Thatcher. Though she had ... market research, surveys and trends

The Challenge of Mondragon
The Basque region of Spain has, in recent years, seen the rise of a system of cooperatives that is unparalleled in its dynamism, growth, and economic impact on a region. The system, which spreads throughout the surrounding Basque region, is named after Mondragon, a town in the mountains of Guipuzkoa Province near Bilbao, the place where the first cooperatives started. Since its start over thirty years ago, it has gained an international reputation, with similar models now being developed in England, Wales, and the United States. While its explicit connections to the anarchist tradition are unclear, the Mondragon system is an ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

On Tuesday, the European Commission will formally propose giving back to national and local governments the freedom to decide whether to grow crops that many Europeans still call Frankenfoods. The new policy is aimed at overcoming a stalemate that ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

WikiAnswers - What was rural life like in England during the late ...
From the 1780s onwards Britain was transformed by the industrial revolution. Until then most people lived in the countryside and made their living from farming. By the 1880's most people in Britain lived in towns and made their living from mining or manufacturing industries. From 1712 a man named Thomas Newcomen (1663-1729) made primitive steam engines for pumping water from mines. In 1769 James Watt (1736-1819) patented a more efficient steam engine. In 1785 his engine was adapted to driving machinery in a cotton factory. The use of steam engines to drive machines slowly transformed industry. Meanwhile Britain built up a ...
