Matthew Norman: Heralding a new dawn?
Finally, as even the most fervent Remainer may agree, Brexit is responsible for something to be cherished. The “special relationship” is dead (or at the very least, in cryogenic stasis). Good riddance to the era of ritual obedience – and long live what Emmanuel Macron, such a gifted translator, unveiled this week as “le relationship especiale”. With Britain’s global irrelevance cemented by the semiconscious uncoupling from the
 
 
Amit Kapoor: Rising global debt levels threaten to hit productivity
Any undergraduate student of economics would vouch for the fact that an economy in a recession requires a fiscal stimulus package (or more government spending and lower taxes). Such a stimulus can only be managed if the economy constrains its fiscal spending in times of growth.

Albert R. Hunt: Republicans on the edge despite bright survey results
Two surveys popped up last week that seem to show improved prospects for Republican House candidates this November. Disregard them!

Rachel Coldicutt: Trapped in fine print
You may already have noticed your inbox filling up with a new species of spam. “You’re in control,” the latest one told me. “The law is changing.” This proliferation of politely worded emails asking you to please accept or not miss out or continue to receive is the public face of a gargantuan piece of European data protection legislation called GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), which comes into force exactly a month
 
 
Eric Zorn: Ending card signatures is a whale of a good idea
So long, Shamu. For more than a decade I’ve been signing the name of the world’s most famous killer whale on credit card receipts and signature pads. When I’m not in a hurry, I add a crude drawing with jagged teeth and a spray of water coming out of Shamu’s blowhole. And not once, not in literally thousands of transactions, has a store employee or server compared that scrawl to the signature on the back of my card, asked to see
