June 19, 2013

ECONOMIC GROWTH NOT RELATED TO STOCK MARKET PERFORMANCE Would it surprise you to know that there is almost no relationship between the way the economy grows and the stock market’s performance? If you are spending time worrying about the economy when making your investment decisions, it is like...

» Reflections on love
Darrel Bristow-Bovey
June 06, 2013

Recently I’ve been thinking about love stories. Perhaps it’s because I am myself in love. I am no longer young and have been in love before, so maybe that’s why it feels as if all the love stories we most love are either incomplete or overly complete – they either stop when l...

» Ignore financial NEWS
Warren Ingram
June 04, 2013

IGNORE FINANCIAL NEWS It might seem strange for a person who appears regularly in the media to state that financial news is noise. However, I feel that very little financial reporting contains valuable information. Real-time financial news actually inhibits good financial decision-making. Most inves...

» It pays to be an OPTIMIST
Warren Ingram
May 16, 2013

OPTIMISTS MAKE MORE MONEY It would not surprise you to know that wealthy people are generally happy optimists. Most of us would say that affluent people are happier because they are wealthy. However most of us would be wrong. Those who have achieved a measure of success in their lives have generally...

In Paris recently I became depressed by the thought that I don’t live in a first-floor apartment on the rue des Fossés-Saint-Jacques, across the way from a Tibetan restaurant, around the corner from the Pantheon, rue Soufflot and the eastern entrance to the Luxembourg Gardens.  &nb...

» A legacy of books and stories
Darrel Bristow-Bovey
April 05, 2013

My father would be ninety-two this month if he hadn’t died in 1981. In the final years before he died, my father mainly did two things – or three, if you count banging his walking stick on the ceiling and shouting at the Houghton kids upstairs to turn down their music. The black rubber t...

Darrel Bristow-Bovey
November 05, 2012

Say, are you writing a novel at the moment? Oh now, go on, don’t be shy, you’re not alone. Well, you are alone, obviously, in the sense that we are all of us alone on this long lurch down the darkling trail between the cradle and the grave, and also in the sense that writing a novel, if ...

September 17, 2012

"I invent in the book this imaginary newspaper called the Daily Insult... For me that was a really difficult aspect of this because if enough mud is thrown with sufficient force it sticks, and I think that for a long time a lot of people, in England anyway and beyond England, because these stor...
