Drawing on behavioural science, economics, psychology and his knowledge of the media, Evan sets out to explore the surprising logic of the bullshit we encounter. He ends by providing readers with a tool-kit to handle the kinds of deceptions we encounter every day, and charts a route through the muddy waters of the post-truth age.
A two-part series exploring the polarising forces behind the divergent economic performance of the London and south-east regions as compared with the rest of the UK. Evan examines the case for increased investment in the east-west M62 corridor to create a city-region that could rival London’s gravitational pull.
The first programme takes a sympathetic look at the case for increasing the proportion of our economy devoted to infrastructure. The second programme suggests that we are in a better position to invest in infrastructure than we have been for many years, as we have improved our record at delivering large scale construction projects.
