QE2 in a Storm
Geoff Canham, Editor

The Fed wants to pump more money into the economy by purchasing Federal bonds, but people at home and abroad are questioning the plan. What is it about this idea that has people complaining? In this article we look at the dispute around QE2 and look at how the recession is receding - or not.


IPD Part 2
Gordon Beveridge

IPD has been talked about a lot recently, as we did in our previous newsletter. This time we complete our look at whether IPD is really something new, or a variation on something that has been around for a long time.


Green and Civil

Do we need another rating system for Green construction? Another one is being launched, and this time it is for civil construction projects.
