Press clipping: Research
Dr James Taylor (History) has published an article in Historical Research exploring the origins of financial reporting in Britain.'Watchdogs or Apologists? Financial Journalism and Company Fraud in Early Victorian Britain' uses the story of a massive insurance company fraud from the 1830s to show that the press performed a 'watchdog' role much earlier than is widely believed. The article is discussed in Talking Biz News, a website run by the Carolina Business News Initiative and UNC School of Journalism and Mass Communication.
