We may be in the middle of the so-called “silly season”, but there have been plenty of weighty stories in the world of business this week.
As my comment piece highlighted on Tuesday, our economy is struggling because of a lack of female engineers. The piece was partly inspired by the work of the playwright Jessica Swale, who was kind enough to provide feedback on Twitter. Here’s my comment piece.
My colleague Ismail Mulla also found evidence of a “doughnut war” in a Yorkshire city as two major players in the sector fought to increase their market share.
Here’s his take on the doughnut saga.A new community could soon be created in the Holbeck area of Leeds, as developers work on plans for a major regeneration scheme.
On Business Talk TV, we got the chance to quiz a senior figure at Lloyds about the steps the bank is taking to help small firms in our region.
And finally, we found that a technology company is looking to revolutionise the recycling of old Lego bricks and hopes to help charity along the way.
