For anyone studying management and / or HRM Bottom Line: Mental Health’s excellent programme on mental health in the workplace would provide insightful listening. Adroitly chaired by Evan Davies with guests Lord Stevenson of Coddenham, (entrepreneur and former Chairman of HBOS and Pearson), Andrea Woodside (Founder, Minding Work Limited) and Charlie Mowat (Managing Director, The Clean Space) who openly discuss their experience of dealing with severe mental health issues whilst running their companies, I found the discussion very interesting and thought-provoking.

Broadcast last week, Bottom Line: Mental Health is available at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b048034w

Capture MinskyFor those trying to comprehend the 2008 Credit Crunch (labelled ‘a Minsky moment’), and perhaps capitalism itself, a radio programme broadcast last night about the late American economist Hyman Minsky is certainly worth listening to. Minsky’s revealing slogan “Stability is destabilising” argued that “the seeds of the next crisis are sown as the financial sector engages in riskier and riskier lending in pursuit of profit”.  Therefore, capitalism is inherently unstable.
