  1. All sounds good! 🙂 I’d be most interested in hearing about the Eurovision voting biases, ideal locations for hospitals (which I’ve always wondered about) and the impact of speed of fuel consumption.


  2. I vote for the dynamics of second hand car prices.
    Including: why are seemingly second hand cars cheaper in the UK than in Spain (Europe as well?) – something to do with right hand drive.
    Why do cars depreciate so much in the first year.
    what will be the effect of the 2k government “cash inna banger” subsidy.


  3. Eurovision!! Preferably including: has Terry Wogan bowed out too early? And will the loss of his pithy insults weaken the solidarity between enemy voting blocs?


  4. The housing and Zopa studies interest. Also, how about plotting house prices against the proportion of the population that is of working age? There was a paper on this out of the Fed a few years ago which predicted the current slump.
