The Weekend Desk Report

It's the weekend. Let loose and tell us how you really feel.

Market Update
The Transparency Index saw a shake-up this week as Monarchy significantly outperformed both Democracy and Populist Autocracy.

Oscar Beat
You could be forgiven for confusing the Republican presidential race with some high-concept throwback film, so with the Oscars looming we give you a quick guide to tell them apart:

* The Artist is completely silent. The Candidates never shut up.

* The Artist tries to recapture a bygone American age. The Candidates... yeah, pretty much ditto.

* The Artist lead actor's chances of a win may be jeopardized by sexism row. No one's entirely sure who The Candidates' lead actor is.

* The Artist will probably be forgotten in a year. The Candidates? Ditto.

Low Hanging Fruit . . .
Ben and Jerry's announced a new flavor this week designed to cash in on the biggest sporting juggernaut in years. The ice cream features lychee honey swirls and melts instantly upon contact with The Heat.

. . . But Still Delicious
We're guessing this isn't the first Buffett he's shut down, either.
