"I've observed an apparently disproportionate number of my MBA peers throwing the towel in recently for more 'fulfilling' tracks. The problem seems to be the disappointed expectations of my vintage: the crazy years of 2006/7 immediately following graduation created an assumption that there was easy money to be made, but the financial crisis made the going much tougher."

"The next thing to fix is the council tax anomaly. The amount of council tax payable on a £40m property in Belgravia is comparable to that on a sub-£1m property in other parts of central London. This makes no sense - a change to this would be an easy way to tax the untaxable."
