Work

Have an Icelandic horse write your out of office

Eid holidays are already upon us and the European holiday season is just around the corner (sorry American readers - we'll see you all in September). If you want an out-of-office message that's out of the ordinary, check this out from the Icelandic tourist office. They have trained horses to type on giant keyboards and they'll write a unique, personalised out-of-office message for you. No really.

Modelling

Multidimensional table-based modelling

Craig Hatmaker, founder of Beyond Excel and a regular speaker for EUSPRIG, joined us in the Full Stack community this week to showcase his multidimensional table-based approach to modelling. At Full Stack we're big fans of people who bring innovation to modelling. A lot of our members are now working through his website to unpick this methodology. It won't be for everybody but it's well worth looking into. 

Video

Olivier Blanchard on inflation

In this video interview, macroeconomist Olivier Blanchard gives his views on the current economic outlook and the forces shaping inflationary pressure. Blanchard believes that U.S. inflation is driven more by demand than supply, while in Europe it’s the opposite. He outlines why consumer demand rather than wages is driving inflation. Watch here.
