Some readers may wonder about the aim of this introduction. Well, its purpose is just that - introducing the week’s news. Sometimes, there’s a clear theme emerging in the newsletter which is worthy of explanation. Other times, there may be one particular item that needs to be highlighted. However, we regularly use this space to add some perspective on the week’s news. For example, we may try to relate it to some major economic development or regulatory change.
We also use this item to share our own news - website revisions, newsletter changes or a surge in readership.
We hope you enjoy this section and welcome any feedback .
