Uk Economic Recovery? How?

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help me with this

Like many of you I read the papers and watch the news telling us how France, Germany, Japan etc are no longer in recession,etc

I can understand that when it seems they are manufacturers and major exporters but I fail to understand what assests we have to get our exports up and help us grow

Manufacturing just seems to get exported more and more, banking has become questionable,

Can anyone enlighten me

A) We are eighth on the list of the world's biggest exporters. You have just compared us with three of the top five.

B) Economic growth does not solely arise through exports.

C) Manufacturing is only about 20% of UK GDP.

But the main point is why worry. Lets liken our economy to an amusement park, with countless swings and roundabouts and rides all going at different speeds and lit by countless flashing lights.

GDP is some blokes guess at how much heat all this activity is producing. It's beside the point.

When a country comes out of recession, that doesn't mean it has started growing, it just means it has stopped shrinking.

Govt spending is a part of GDP. The government is spending fast. We should be out of recession by the end of the next quarter.

The bad news is that we will be somewhat deeper in the shit.

I am hoping the export market for carrots and parsnips will soon be opening up
