Anyone know any good UK money blogs?

This is in the nature of a request.

Something I’d like to get back to on this blog are financial or economics posts.  There used to be sources but over time, perhaps because my politics became more conservative (i.e. radical, more Deplorable, more alt-right) the money sources dropped away.

A major factor was the Leave v Remain thing.  Yes, there are still US-oriented sites such as ZeroHedge but the UK ones seem to be this one:

There used to be Sackerson but he turned it into an ‘educational’ blog – noble indeed and a fine blog but not the hard financial data needed for a three times a week posting.

The Economic Voice was a good one for awhile but I suspect the admin there doesn’t like me (quite understandable of course), never answered my emails so I gave up.

There’s little point offering investment advice as an amateur but the general biz climate from a Leave/sceptical angle might be worthwhile.

I’d also like more hard data on China from a global economic perspective but who is authoritative enough? Peston, being of the illumined, FT, Bloomberg etc. are equally tainted, Max Keiser is of the left, dear Chris Dillow is Fabian or seems so … so I’m not sure where to find good sources – Google doesn’t help.

I do miss Wat Tyler. This one any good?


This sort of article was what I was looking at, also how gold is too, metals in general:

This blog, nourishing obscurity, offers no financial investment advice whatever, beyond suggesting you do not invest even one penny on the basis of what we write here.

    Thanks for the name check, James. I gave up on financial blogging because I felt the whole system is so crooked and unstable we’ll be lucky to keep what we have.

    I think the watershed was when they made Congress vote twice on the bank bailouts – I had been hanging off advising clients to invest until things had found their true value; I had no idea that TPTB would be so irresponsible. And it’s gotten far worse since then.

    Btw they are not UK blogs / sites but the first two will tailor results to your interests.

      Thanks for that. Think I might put some links on a page and run the page from the navbar, occasionally taking something interesting, e.g. the stock exchange article, attributed of course.

    You might be interested in a blog called Our Finite World.

    The author of Our Finite World is Gail Tverberg. She is a researcher focused on figuring out how energy limits and the economy are really interconnected, and what this means for our future. Her background is as a casualty actuary, working in insurance forecasting.

    Shaun Richards does a well research economics daily blog, avoiding politics:

    Monevator is more personal finance oriented, usually has plenty of interesting links to follow in each post;

      Monevator does carry some interesting stuff, mainly by the cowriters. The main fella – The Investor – is thin-skinned, verbose, and obsessed with Brexit.

    FinTwit is where it’s at now. Financial bloggers have given up on the whole, too much abuse.

    It’s a genial environment on the whole if you avoid the gold-bugs, gold haters.
