What we learned this week

  • Quantitative Easing prints money to prop up bond prices – what if you printed money and gave it to the public instead, wonders Anatole Kaletsky.
  • Sweden has the best paternity leave in the world, 240 days paid for by the government.
  • I love some of the robust off-grid gadgets designed for Africa, and it’s a shame that they’re often not available here – so I was pleased to see the Wakawaka solar light is available to order online. The price to you and me helps to fund a discount for those buying in more needy places.
