Statistics suggest that lack of luck, rather than lack of skill, was the reason England failed to progress beyond the group stages of the football World Cup. http://on.ft.com/1lsuD8F

I am convinced that the main reason for England's long term failure in international competitions is a direct result of too few potentially world class home grown talented players being denied the chance to get top class club experience. Why? Well try asking the FA and EPL why English players only represent 38% of the Premier League clubs. Then, I suggest you might want to check the rules and the stats relating to the Bundeslige. Rather different from England. Then reflect on the record of the German national team. Too much greed and too many vested interests in English clubs if you ask me!

Free to read: Joko Widodo, a former furniture maker-turned-politician, is the front-runner to win Indonesia's presidency next month, a meteoric rise that would be the Indonesian equivalent of President Barack Obama’s journey to the White House. But does 'Jokowi' have what it takes to win over powerful establishment rivals?

Read for free: Working for free has become a common practice, especially in the creative industries. Its advocates argue that free work can open doors, provide experience and help make contacts. But does it really pay off? http://on.ft.com/ToEFRt
Charlie Hoehn attributes much of his career success as a marketing strategist to one thing: his willingness to work for nothing. “Free work opens doors that you could never imagine if you took a traditional path,” he says. The author of the ebook

Can you smell a trust crisis coming? Yeah... I think it's too risk just pay to see, but apparently the 1% has it's own ace in its sleeves. Should we call it cheating? Well, let's hope their grandchildren don't grow up to donate all their fortune to the poors, right?

Free to read: Is China heading for a "Lehman moment"? 

The last shadow banking bubble, in the US in the run-up to 2008, compounded the global crisis that followed. Now markets and regulators are concerned that the rapid build-up of risk in China’s shadow banking sector could inflict similar damage.

Free to read: For the past 120 years output per head of population has increased by about 2 per cent a year. These productivity gains have been the underpinning of modern civilization.

But we may no longer be able to keep increasing output at this pace. 
To glimpse the miracle of productivity growth there is nowhere better to look than the bountiful fields of the US Corn Belt. A hundred years ago, an army of farmers toiled to produce 30 bushels an acre; now only a few hands are needed to produce 160

Free to read: Since 2012 the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, (Isis) has issued annual reports, outlining in numerical and geographical detail its operations – the number of bombings, assassinations, checkpoints, suicide missions, cities taken over and even “apostates” converted to the Isis cause.
It is not a corporation and does not have shareholders, but the military success and brutality of the jihadi group surging through Iraq has been recorded with the level of precision often reserved for company accounts. Since 2012 the Islamic State
