I usually become unsettled when I read most business magazines on the basis that they are rarely about business. Instead, their articles, interviews and commentaries are all too often interwoven with all kinds of corporatist and mercantilist thinking more akin to politics than robust enterprise in its true and voluntaristic sense. But this is not Business First Magazine under the very sound and able leadership of Nick Peters. Here, for real, is a serious and genuine Business publication.
I first met Nick earlier this year and very quickly realised that he was a man of sound vision and principle. It also happens that he gets it. He understands that business is best when it is in and of the market – to the exclusion of legislative favour and crony capitalism. Indeed, a sign of the man and his venture is the fact that the current edition of Business First Magazine contains this superb interview with TCC’s Chairman, Toby Baxendale.
