    Can someone recommend me good (read: not Malcolm Gladwell), accessible psychology books which are neither by Daniel Kahneman nor actually behavioural economics books?

    They say despite turmoil, should this not be the sort of thing the government should have been doing before the referendum in case, as actually happened, we do leave so there is that project ongoing when there is greatest risk to the economy, helping stimulate the economy given the projects jsut shy of 1% of GDP. If we hadn't left, well it needs doing anyway.

    You say that but actually the SNP parliamentary party leader has the support of at least 55 other MPs while Jeremy only has the support of 40 MPs. They also claim that labour MP's prefer them to Jeremy so it is somewhat reasonable.

    Moody's downgrades British banks. British bank stocks rise for 2nd day in a row. Does anybody care about ratings agencies these days?

    And non expectation of a rate rise from the fed until 2018 between brexit and the presidential elections

    Good to hear Corbyn on PMQs earlier being all "the economy is doomed" and then Cameron responding by saying "we will make sure it happens"

    He looks as if he's in the process of falling over backwards there - a bit like his economic policies!

    People are pushing for the US to start negotiations with the UK, and there have been criticisms from Congress of Obama's position ever since he visited; Iceland very quickly started considering `a trade deal; the Indian finance minister indicates a desire to finally enter into a FTA with a European nation; Australia and New Zealand might be teaming up to negotiate a FTA (and the latter is offering us some of their top trade negotiators); Ghana almost immediately started preparing to enter into talks; the Canadian PM wishes to deepen ties and Canada is reported to have approached the FCO; Mexico has already drafted a deal; Switzerland is very open to us returning to EFTA with only Norway potentially taking issue and I expect would otherwise engage in negotiations; and South Korea have also already formally approached us to engage in negotiations.

    I will add to this when I find the right article that South Africa has stated its intention to enter talks with the UK following Brexit, and the FTSE 100 is now above its pre-Brexit level.

    And the 250 is on track to be at pre brexit levels on Friday, or perhaps only just missing it. Last time 100 was at this level was 20th April. 10 year GILTs remain at record lows of ~095%, sterling has delcined slightly over the last few hours but is still gaining at a rate of nearly 1.5 cent a day against the dollar and half that on the Euro
