0 Have your say When it comes to how Brexit will affect business, much of the debate in the UK has focused on large firms, particularly international ones such as Honda and Nissan. The CBI, which mainly represents big business, has been tirelessly warning of the economic dangers of a no deal in the coming weeks. The likely impact on small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) has received much less attention by comparison. We have published a new study in the journal Regional Studies that looks at this in detail. We found that well over one million UK SMEs, around a quarter of the total, were concerned about how Brexit would affect the success of their business. We also examined how Brexit uncertainty varies according to the size and location of companies and their business orientation.SMEs represent a core part of the UK economy, accounting for 99% of all UK firms and 60% of total private sector employment. They are crucial for innovation and productivity growth … [Read more...] about Ross Brown and John OS Wilson: Small firms at Brexit’s sharp end
Losing nine of 10 games has not been enough to drop the Wild from the Western Conference’s playoff hunt, but that no longer matters. It’s over. The team that flew to New York for Thursday’s 6:30 p.m. puck drop against the Rangers at Madison Square Garden will return substantially different. It no longer has, as they say in cherry-paneled board rooms, the confidence of management. “It’s the life cycle of a sports team,” a high-ranking Wild official said Wednesday. “We’ll be back quickly.” So, there it is, and as if on cue, stuff got real, so here’s hoping you meant it when you tweeted that atomic blast GIF after the Wild’s 4-0 loss to the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday. The Wild sent forward Charlie Coyle to his hometown Boston Bruins on Wednesday, the second substantive deal general manager Paul Fenton has put together the past month. More moves will be forthcoming, perhaps before the Wild return for a Sunday night game … [Read more...] about John Shipley: Wild officially ready to move on. Are you?
Former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand sparked a huge reaction on Saturday night following his comments about Newcastle United and their owner Mike Ashley. Ferdinand, who was a pundit on BT Sport during the Magpies' Premier League fixture with Chelsea, defended the way Ashley is running the club, despite the current unrest at St James's Park."I don't even know him [Mike Ashley] very well," said Ferdinand, who has sold clothing merchandise through Ashley's stores."When they went down, he spent £50m of his own money to get them up. Thank you, that should be."By the way, please say thank you for getting Rafa Benítez in! They're lucky to have him!“They should say thank you to Ashley. You look at Sunderland, they had £1.2million to go up from the Championship. And they owe a thank you to Mike Ashley for getting Rafa Benitez.”BT Sport presenter Jake Humphrey defended Newcastle fans, saying it was Benitez who approached the club rather than the other way … [Read more...] about ‘He’s managed to get fans of Leeds, Liverpool, Manchester United and even Sunderland sticking up for us’: Newcastle fans react to Rio Ferdinand’s Mike Ashley comments
The way the Amazon.com HQ2 fiasco turned out raised one question that leaders of lots of cities and states have to be thinking about, including in the clear loser of the first round of Amazon’s process, the Twin Cities. Are we big enough to compete? Amazon concluded its national search for a “second headquarters,” whatever that was supposed to be, by announcing two new campuses on the East Coast. One of the planned sites lies in suburban Virginia across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C., and the other is in New York. Neither place needed an economic shot in the arm. In fact, that’s what made them attractive in the first place to Amazon, which will be looking to recruit from a deep and wide talent pool that already exists in those regions, made up of folks attracted by opportunity and lifestyle. New York needs no introduction as a business hub, but Washington, D.C., has been coming up fast. Greater Washington now has more than 6.2 million people, an … [Read more...] about Twin Cities investment in people is the right move
