'I Haven't Seen a Drop, Never Mind a Trickle': Economics and TTIP, the View From Bradford

Posted on December 11, 2014
Posted by Ruth Bergan
Fellowship: 2013

Proponents of the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) use a simple formula to argue for the deal: more open trade leads to more growth which leads to more jobs.

One of the many reasons why this is problematic is that it says nothing about how projected impacts of TTIP - 0.5% growth and 0.7% job dislocation across the EU - will be distributed.

Down a small side street near Liverpool Street Station sits Sandy’s Row Synagogue, a wood-panelled world that has existed for over 150 years.

Finding the neutral zone and failing fast

Posted on November 5, 2014
Posted by Tom Doust
Fellowship: 2013

The social sector is full individuals with unparalleled compassion for and dedication to the improvement of society. That dedication, however, often leaves little room for reflection or horizon scanning. Unlike the private sector, the social sector struggles to find the time and resources to provide good training, the creative space to develop new thinking or the ‘fail fast’ philosophy to prototype new ideas. Not only does the nature of the sector generate little appetite for a culture of risk taking, but social impact measures leave little room for learning through failure.
