Welcome to my new online home on the BBC news website. Here I'll be sharing my thoughts and analysis on what's happening in the economy.

I'll be doing a few different things here. Sometimes I'll offer a bit more analysis or data or the day's big economic stories and other times I'll try and step back and look at the big trends changing the global economy.

My economic interests are fairly eclectic, so expect that be mirrored here. One day I might be talking about the eurozone and the next about fast food pricing. There'll be probably be some economic history too - but only when I can make it relevant.
