Issue 1404 - Baby Yoda

You’d have to have been hiding out in a galaxy far, far away to miss the cutest new character in the Star Wars universe. We look at the lessons we can learn from Baby Yoda aka The Child to get us through the next few months. And we hope readers won’t be able to resist. We also catch up with the original Yoda living out his retirement on a Caribbean island…

Also inside…

- From Jedi mind tricks to the real magic of Dynamo. After a long period of illness – and having just recovered from Coronavirus – Britain’s biggest trickster is back on top. But, he says, it’s NHS staff who are the real magicians.
- Mervyn King was the Bank of England boss through the financial crash a decade ago. He exclusively tells The Big Issue the lessons from that time we need to apply now.
- There’s probably a lot of people stuck at home listening to Radiohead so we have the band’s Ed O’Brien as this week’s Letter To My Younger Self.
- Norwich vendor Simon tells us how the antique trade has also taken a hammering.
- Lennie James gives us her self-isolation kit.

And yes, we have another exercise from Mr Motivator!

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
