Of course, we all know that the world's biggest problem is Banksters: i.e. They - and what they have DONE to this world -- sit like the proverbial Elephant in the Room.... & everyone is trying to pretend that the Elephant isn't there....

It is SO depressing how this is not THE ISSUE of our time. :rolleyes:

Gordon Brown?

Honourable mention: Ed Balls.

Solution? Something involving a bucket of cold kippers perhaps.

After Build a Burger, they had a brainstorming session. And he probably came up with the idea with a lottery or some sort of "wanted dead or alive" campaign.

One million? I wouldn't get out of bed for that.

One billion or I will crash your ******ing economy, and that is just the signing on fee.

The biggest problem is big government making big promises to pay out money they simply don't have.

Now can I have my £1 million pounds please Mr Cameron?

He is supposed to be in charge and says the worlds biggest problem needs identifying....says it all, don't hold up much hope in him solving anything if he himself knows not what the problem is. ;)

He's either being:

very very stupid (4/5)

or

it's a brilliant idea (100/1)

I'm guessing it will be something to do with internet porn or climate change.

“What the world needs most of all right now is growth, and that growth in my view is going to come from small businesses and start-up businesses, more than from the big existing traditional businesses, so the whole agenda of innovation and entrepreneurship is absolutely vital,” he said.

How about a world war on tourism?! If you are not with us, you are with the tourists!

This war lasts for 10 years, getting everyone on side, in looking under sofas, behind book cases etc. Factories will be built everywhere churning out T-shirts with the logo "GIVE QUICHE A CHANCE". Up and down the land, every town and village will have a focus group, and neighbour hood watch to look out for those damm tourists. Call centres will be built answering queries about tourists 24 hours a day. One day we'll even invade mars, to look for maps of mass destruction, used by tourists.

But the UK government doesn't know what the problem is yet

So there is a prize of £1m to answer the above question!

This is the best that PPE can offer? FFS.

I think the best think we can do for the nation is blow up the Oxford college that houses PPE and get rid of the weakest part of the education system which clearly develops intellectual morons.

the question isnt solving the situation.

Its about identifying and solving the biggest of them

Debt is the biggest problem if you live in the West.

Starvation is the biggest problem in other parts of the World.

both are solved by providing the resource that is missing....one is imaginary though, the other isnt.

Our (UK) biggest problem: Housing crisis.

Solution: Drop the building prohibition. Allow people and small, local builders to build.

Please let's not derail yet another thread with immigration issues. And regarding EU migration (both in and out), please see this http://www.housepricecrash.co.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=191378&view=findpost&p=909346552 . You can reply there if you wish?

Maybe immigration is the worlds biggest problem.

Perhaps, "tribes", have some in build genetic/evolutionary protection/social mechanism that makes them want to live in a secure, familiar environment with their own ilk ( be it at a town/county/country level) where they can build a society of their choosing to suit their particular genetic/evolutionary/social make up. Marry this with a system that lets others freely into that society, unbalancing that system and maybe that's where all the friction in the world happens.

I reckon someone could do a PHD on the subject.

Maybe the future is localisation instead of globalization.

I just think there are too man people in the world with too few people living off their backs, the only solution for this is smaller government and localisation. There is too much scope for greed and corruption in the current system.

I wasn't trying to derail the thread, I was noting that the housing problem is caused because there are artifical limits to its supply but the demand (as in people who want to live somewhere) is not being similarly restricted.

So upping the supply a bit will be barely noticeable if you do nothing about reducing the demand.

Cheapskate

The new 'grand innovation challenge' is inspired by the Longitude Prize set by the British government in 1714, which promised £20,000 to the person who mastered the challenge of calculating longitude at sea to help maritime navigation.

You got a lot more reward for your innovation back in 1714

You would require £3,755,294.11 to match it today

And that is at 2% per year average since 1750
