Diane Coyle, OBE, Enlightenment Economics and Smith School, Oxford University "Phil writes in a clear manner, simplifying ideas that can be complex. He has a fine ability to mix relevant and topical observations with more detailed discussions, bringing a topic to life and making it easily understood".
