Do film festivals help or hurt their host cities? 11 Sep 9:34am Do film festivals help or hurt their host cities?
From Venice to Sundance, festivals often use huge amounts of a city’s resources – but their social impact and financial benefits are undeniable “I found shelter in a bakery from the water canons and tear gas,” says Yasemin*, a resident of Istanbul, recalling one fateful day in April 2013. She is not describing one of the many demonstrations that would snowball into Istanbul’s massive Gezi Park protests only a month later. Yasemin is remembering the 32nd Istanbul International Film Festival. The Emek Resistance, as it came to be known, started when the Turkish authorities began to demolish the film festival’s flagship location, the historic Emek cinema. News that the 875-seater 1920s building was to be replaced with yet another shopping centre (Istanbul had around 100 shopping centres at the time; today it has 114) politicised old and young festival-goers alike. Istanbullus like Yasemin took to the streets to demonstrate against unchecked urban development in the district of Beyoğlu. It was a precursor to a summer of city-wide dissent.

The goings-on in the White House and Westminster are having as much effect as economic indicators Political events have always had an impact on the world’s financial markets but rarely have they mattered quite so much as they do now. Take two current examples. The latest news from Germany on Thursday was dire, with a plunge in factory orders adding to the risk of a technical recession – two successive quarters of negative growth. Normally, this would be a reason to sell German shares but the Frankfurt stock market was up.

Britain has a vocal weak-currency lobby but depreciation is not a route to long-term success, as Italy could tell youLike the weather, the foreign exchange market changes every day and appears at the end of the evening news. Unlike the weather, though, the external value of the pound isn’t directly experienced by most people, except when they go on holiday. This creates something of a cognitive vacuum – into which a lot of politicised folk theories seem to get sucked and which makes the exchange rate one of our lowest-quality debates.

Prices rise for British tourists as Brexit puts the pound in the shade 20 Jul 11:00am Prices rise for British tourists as Brexit puts the pound in the shade
Fighting talk on Brexit from Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson has inevitably hit the value of sterling Sun, sea and sinking sterling. News of a fresh decline in the value of the pound was greeted with forbearance by travellers at Luton airport last week. The currency has been under pressure at various times since the referendum, having fallen by 14% against the euro since the vote, and it hit a six-month low of €1.105 last Wednesday in the wake of renewed pledges by Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt over pursuing a no-deal Brexit. Against the US dollar, sterling took even more of a battering last week, falling at one stage to below $1.24.

The economy is struggling – but that could be good news for new PM 23 Jun 7:01am The economy is struggling – but that could be good news for new PM
Amid talk of snap autumn election, could Boris Johnson or Jeremy Hunt do what John Major did? The new prime minister could hardly have chosen a worse moment to enter Downing Street. Growth had stalled, there was serious trouble in the Middle East, the government’s flagship policy had made it deeply unpopular. Yet at the next general election, the Conservative party won an overall majority against all the odds. That was how things panned out for John Major after he took over from Margaret Thatcher in late 1990. The economy had just entered a recession that resulted in record bankruptcies and home repossessions; oil prices were soaring after Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait; and Britain had been convulsed by a summer of poll tax riots. The economy actually got a lot worse in the course of 1991 but

Why a bookie-bashing Royal Ascot may add to racing’s money misery 17 Jun 10:37am Why a bookie-bashing Royal Ascot may add to racing’s money misery
Results at Cheltenham and the Grand National meeting have left a £17m shortfall in the sport’s finances and a good week for punters would be bad news for racingThere will be quite a few individuals at Royal Ascot this week for whom £17m is the rough equivalent of the small change which the rest of us put in a pot by the front door for emergencies. Racing as a whole, however, still considers £17m to be quite a lot of money, and it also happens to be the size of the dent which was left in the sport’s finances by the Cheltenham and Aintree Festivals earlier in the year. The results at those two meetings were, overall, very good for the punters and therefore very bad for the bookies. At Cheltenham, nine of the 28 races went to the favourite, including a six-race sequence on the middle two days when the backers could do no wrong. One of the winners was Tiger Roll, probably the most popular horse in training, who
