By Dry, Chris Bayly, Josh; Nebel, Andrew; Knox, Scott The Marketing Society Forum Last week, the National Consumer Council's Anna Fielder claimed that supermarket BOGOF promotions are more to blame than the ad industry for fuelling unhealthy eating Chris Dry, managing director, 141 Worldwide/London. Maybe. It depends what the offer is on. For high-ticket cupboard stock, such as dishwasher tablets, clearly the answer is no, as they represent a genuine deal. But many BOGOFs mean using...

By Pickford, Andrew AGRICULTURAL POWERS - those self sufficient in food, fabric, and hydrocarbon production - once were unambiguously regarded as strategic powers. This has been true throughout history: societies which were not agriculturally efficient and abundant could never long or fully sustain strategic power. Now, once again, a new set of nations is likely to emerge in the 21st Century with significant regional, if not global, influence demonstrably based on their agricultural...

By Walmsley, Andrew For the past 11 years, I have sought out my respite from the digital maelstrom on a small Greek island. Just a few years ago, there was no cellphone coverage; getting on the internet required you to dismantle the phone socket, and the one internet cafe on the island offered two computers sharing one ponderous dial-up connection. It was charming, idiosyncratic, picturesque. After a few days, however, it was pretty annoying. Arriving there last week, it has all changed....

By Walmsley, Andrew From Whitehall's loss of CDs containing the child benefit records of 25m citizens, to the hacking of customer databases, every week seems to bring another story of incompetence or criminality in the data world. Everywhere we go, we leave a data cloud behind us. From shopping habits to Tube journeys, little bits of information track our behaviour, while an estimated 4.2m cameras watch our indiscretions. When we move online, we bask in the assumed privacy it brings us....

By Walmsley, Andrew Any Israelite who happened to have a neighbour with an attractive ox was probably beginning to think he had got away with it, until Moses said 'And tenthly...'. Still, everyone was probably relieved to have that whole 'no coveting anything that belongs to your neighbour' matter cleared up, as it had probably caused more than a little strife, what with the lack of non-bovine consumer durables that might have provided alternatives to covet. Whatever else we might have got...

We're not talking rabbits' feet and avoiding ladders here - he has devised four principles that determine a person's likelihood of success. Some of them are pretty obvious -'Maximise your chances of something good happening by creating, noticing and acting on opportunities,' he says. But at least we now know that we really do make our own luck, and nowhere is...
