How To Overcome The Catch-22 Of Two-Sided Networks
I found myself speaking to an entrepreneur recently about how to develop a two-sided market. I thought I would relay some of our thoughts on the topic.

onfusion reigns. Some investors fear for a continuation of the April-May sell-off. Others expect UK shares to stabilise in the near future. My own expectations for the equity market remain positive. I am heartened by recent US economic news because of the close link between London and Wall Street. We might move in a different direction for a few hours or a day.
