  • The G20 summit is lousy value for money. Cancel it - Ross Clark looks ahead to Gordon Brown’s summit at which he will try to revive his own political fortunes, found a new global economic order and stage a Bretton Woods for our times. No chance: the whole thing is an expensive sham - 18th March 2009
  • You’d be bonkers to buy abroad. Here’s why - The advert, in a Sunday newspaper, couldn’t have presented a happier scene: a smiling couple, looking as if they were about to go dancing off into the sunset - 13th March 2009
  • Want a big bonus? Get yourself a public sector job - Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling rail against bankers’ bonuses. But, says Ross Clark, the really appetising salaries, perks, expense packages and pensions are to be found in the public sector. A terrible reckoning lies ahead for the last fat cats - 18th February 2009
  • Insolvency - A formula for fecklessness: The Insolvency Service has sent me a questionnaire seeking my views on bankruptcy. At first, I was enthused by this chance to say what I think about Gordon Brown’s reforms... - 11th February 2009
  • Whatever happened to the housing shortage? - The village of Kibworth Harcourt in Leicestershire is an unremarkable place, except that it could reasonably claim to be the front line of Britain’s ailing housing market - 10th February 2009
  • A boom market in economic nonsense - Ross Clark says the current financial crisis has produced a glut of illiteracy and woolly thinking - 28th January 2009
  • Savers are Britain’s new underclass - We are divided into two nations once more, says Ross Clark. Reckless borrowers are helped by government bail-outs, while those who have sacrificed to save are abandoned - 28th January 2009
  • Could house prices fall for 16 years straight? Yes, they could – just look at Japan - If someone had told you in the summer of 2007 that, 18 months on, the Bank of England base rate would be 1.5 per cent and that still your home would be plummeting in value to the tune of 2 per cent a month, you would very likely have told them they were bonkers - 14th January 2009
