London (CNN) – Can you successfully lead, influence and manage?

Do you inspire confidence and credibility?

Are you a person of undisputed integrity and standing?

If so, there's a job just for you: Governor of the Bank of England.

All you have to do now is apply and survive the daunting interview.

The current governor Mervyn King won’t be throwing his hat in the ring. He retires in June next year after two five-year terms in office.

London (CNN) – Many of Europe’s best economic minds have been searching for a radical solution to the European debt crisis.

London (CNN) – It’s not everyday that I wake up to the smell of £250,000.

So, when I saw what was on offer this morning – create an orderly plan for countries to exit the euro and win just shy of US$400,000  – I started to think of my options.

But what would be my plan? Is an exit from the euro even viable?

Some background: Lord Wolfson, CEO of retailer Next, announced the Wolfson Economics Prize, the second largest economics cash prize next to the Nobel, to be awarded to the person who comes up with the least painful way for European nations to disentangle themselves from the European Monetary Union, which unites 17 nations under a single currency.
