The Best of Alex 2017
Availability: In stock
It's 30 years since Alex began his career in the City of London as a Yuppie banker. Today's post-crisis financial reality comes as a grim contrast to those heady, carefree days, with all the additional uncertainties of Brexit, President Trump and a General Election.
On the domestic front Alex's wife Penny's blossoming career as a non-executive director means he has the indignity of attending the World Economic Forum at Davos as her "plus one"; his hapless colleague Clive's divorce from fearsome wife Bridget is getting particularly messy and expensive; and consternation is caused at the bank when Alex's colleague Steven unexpectedly comes out as a transgender woman.
The star of the Daily Telegraph's business pages divides his time between worrying about his job being relocated to Frankfurt post-Brexit, fretting over the arrival of the draconian new compliance regime Mifid II, which will make half the City redundant and remaining blissfuly ignorant about BlockChain - which will do the same for anyone who's left.
The Best of Alex is now in full colour.
