The Entrepreneurs

A few years ago Aron Gelbard realised that the way we send and receive flowers was pretty inefficient. It usually begins with searching the internet for florists and ends with a knock at the door when the receiver is not at home. Aron and his friend Ben Stanway decided there had to be a better way. Their company, Bloom & Wild, boxes up fresh flowers in a container that fits through your door’s letterbox. But getting from idea to execution involved a healthy dose of innovation. This week, Aron explains how they did it.

Meet the Writers

Born in Germany in the 1950s with Bengali ancestry, Steven Uhly is no stranger to racism. But his Spanish stepfather enriched him with the culture of Spain and life in Köln made him feel as German as the rest of the city’s residents. We ask Uhly what it means to be German and he tells us about his life and writing career and his latest book ‘Kingdom of Twilight’.

The Bulletin with UBS

How does a country reconcile stabilising growth and accumulating debt? We ask whether China’s advocacy for globalisation is at odds with its restrictive capital controls and how the country can cope with an overheating property market, an accumulation of debt, wobbles in the interbank market and capital flight.
