Bits and pieces

1. A couple of TUC docs worth checking out. The latest issue of the trustee newsletter (PDF), plus a useful guide to investor engagement.

2. There's an interesting piece on page 3 of the companies and markets section of the FT on one of my favourite themes - the role of shareholders in corporate governance. I suspect this will be one of the big issues that needs to be thrashed out in the wake of the banking crisis.

3. Barclays is still in trouble, despite last week's rally. One to keep a close eye on.

4. Minsky quote of the day... "[Banking]... is a disruptive forces that tends to induce and amplify instability even as it is an essential factor if investment and economic growth are to be financed."
