The UK's digital economy. It's about to explode
I wish I'd read the article, now, because I still don't know whether that's a good thing or not.
In the Guardian headline of 14 April 2015:
'Timebomb' UK economy will explode after election
it's a bad thing. But in the Washington Post of 28 June 2017:
The app economy is about to explode
it's a jolly good one.
Ah well. I can't find that headline on Google, so I suppose I'll never know.
Still, I haven't heard any loud bangs, recently, so I expect it's all rot, anyway.
Word To Use Carefully Today: explode. This word comes from the Latin explōdere, to drive off by clapping or hissing [an actor on the stage], from plaudere, to clap.
