Is The U K A Competitiveness Basket Case?

Recommended Posts

For example if you look at this article from the HPC.co.uk main page:

http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/pdf/falsealarm.pdf

Go to chart 17 and look where the UK is in relation to other countries. Compared to other countries, it costs a lot to pay UK workers their wages and they seem to achieve remarkably little in return. OK, this chart is restricted to the manufacturing sector but I believe the so-called "productivity gap" also applies to other sectors.

Surely this is the biggest sign ever that investment is going to flee the UK, and employment levels are going to drop like a stone.

Yes, mainly caused by too many people surfing the internet and posting on HPC in their spare time. Back to work everyone!

Thanks for this.

It also has an opinion about Sipps:

SIPP off?

The prospect of tax reforms might also be encouraging investors to return to the

property market. But it is unclear the government will allow the tax breaks on

residential property to go ahead next April. The governments finances are weak. It

wants to boost homeownership rates rather than subsidize rich investors.
