So we consider ourselves very lucky to have Bruce back in London this year. Bruce was for a time the largest buyer of produce on earth, but he never forgot the basics he learned on the Detroit Market and at store level. Obviously there are many experts in the UK on British retailing, and we will have more than our fair share of them at The London Produce Show and Conference but, sometimes, an outsider to the market can both speak more freely and see things from a different perspective.

Megan McArdle, a special correspondent for Newsweek and The Daily Beast covering business, economics and public policy, had a great column on what actually happened.
