Weekend read: Jeff Randall’s 30 years of financial journalism

Weekend Read

2014 is the year that Jeff Randall has chosen to make his exit from financial journalism, after three remarkable decades. I have enjoyed his Telegraph column, work for the Financial Times, and, latterly, his Sky News programme for a number of years now, and will miss his insights.

You need money now, and it’s as simple as loans no brokers or fees. Because things happen. Maybe a big expense popped up, maybe you need to pay off bills, or rent a moving truck to relocate for a job. And the amount you need isn’t all that much—500 dollars, or maybe a thousand.

Randall has written a farewell column in the Telegraph, in which he reflects on the changes affecting how to build business credit around the world over thirty years. It was particularly fascinating for me, as someone who isn’t even thirty years old.

On my first day in 1986, if you had told me that Britain’s pioneering successes in the coming quarter of a century would include a mobile telephone company (Vodafone) and a satellite television broadcaster (BSkyB), I would not have understood the proposition.

It’s well worth reading this weekend.
