The Mint Magazine the home of fresh thinking economics, brings together opinion, analysis and humour to provide engaging stories about economic policy and research. Each issue features thinkers from all parts of the economy including Nobel Prize winners, cutting edge investors and social scientists. Published quarterly, this magazine is an invaluable resource for students and professionals keen on staying up to date with the ever-changing economic debate.
• The theme of this issue is the impact of 50 years of the Nobel Prize in Economics starting with Christian Felber on the “fake” Nobel plus articles on ‘good’ winners, Stieglitz and Scheller.
• We have an interview with Kenyan economist Mwangi wa Gĩthĩnji on African economic policy so influenced by the economic theory, Alessandra Mezzadri on sweatshops and Ingrid Harvold Kvangraven and her collaborators on dependency theory.
• We talk to Jonathan Aldred about his book Licence to be Bad, Rita Samiolo on rankings, Nick Robins on how finance should deliver a just transition, and Andrew Black on the “hero” chief executive, Paul Polman.
• We also discover from Georgina Silvester why Handelsbanken, lauded by John Kay, is different.
• Plus we have our regular columnists including our A Level teacher on teaching economic development to children of the elite and Verity on (not) winning the Nobel Prize
