    They are both great Unis, there really isn't much, if any difference in reputation. The difference is in the fact that Edinburgh is a year longer than Bristol's, and obviously, the cities are quite different. A degree from Edinburgh for nothing is a bargain, and Edinburgh is a lovely city, so its down to your personal preference really - are the advantages of Bristol worth so much that you'd be willing to pay £27,000 more?

    I'd go to Edinburgh and then spend the money you would save to get a masters degree from one of the top universities afterwards

    What would be the point of that? A masters at a target is going to cost the same as the Bristol degree but Edinburgh + masters will take 5 years in total whereas a degree at Bristol will only be 3 years...

    That's why I said I'd do it. You'd be left with a better set of qualifications for the same money, albeit in extra years but I said what I would do in their position.

    'Probing the Rich'. Good if you've read '23 Things they don't tell you about capitalism'. I seem like a left-wing nut from this, balances out my immigration fee rants.

    I liked that book, I thought it was especially good as my preconceived ideas were generally what the author was arguing against so it was really good to get a different perspective, makes me think very differently about 'free markets' as well...

    agreed, it was also really well structured, i just started reading 'Nudge' and its harder to follow, with a seemingly less thought out chapterial (if thats a word ) structure

    A really good read I think. Best thing is that it introduced me to some very STRONG both pro and anti free market arguments. An easy read too. Ha-Joon Chang is superb I think, love his work.

    'Kicking Away the Ladder' gives great insight into a lot of important themes in Development Strategy. Great for anyone interested in that sort of stuff. On the other hand, I got this book sent as a gift from a Professor at INSEAD, so I don't think it's 'just' a book for development economics fans. It's an important book about the global economy, it's the sort of book that WILL be on reading lists very soon.

    I would also check out his papers on Industrial Policy, that's the area I think he really shines.
