Here are my musings on business, economics, finance and other assorted goodies

Helen Thomas joined the BBC in 2016 after three years at the Wall Street Journal and nine years at the Financial Times, covering everything from banks and insurance to mining and pharmaceuticals. She wrote for the FT's Lex column in New York during the financial crisis and later edited the WSJ's Heard on the Street column in Europe.

Helen studied at Oxford University, followed by a brief stint in investment banking. After deciding that financial journalism would be more fun than finance itself, Helen started her reporting career at Property Week magazine, a job that involved travelling around the UK often to write about industrial parks. She hails from and lives in south-east London.
