Help To Grow

Guardian:

Cameron says Tories would launch a Help to Grow scheme to help firms grow

Cameron says the next Conservative government would launch Help to Grow, a scheme to help small firms grow.

This would help them through the “valley of death” they face as they try to get established, he says.

  • Cameron says Tories would launch a Help to Grow scheme for firms.
  • Help to Grow would help 500 of the fastest growing firms a year, he says.
  • The British Business Bank will get £100m to pilot the scheme in the budget, he says.

Cameron says he wants to create a UK equivalent of the German Mittelstand.

Maybe a false juice up for commercial property.

Its already hard enough to find a hotel, property or something which actually makes money in line with bank financing.

The answer is to reduce the price not increase the credit.

If you idea is not good enough to attract funding why do the public have to jump in there.

I only see scientific research in medicine or key technologies being of any benefit.

Picking winners again which is fundamentally anti capitalism.

It's just another glib sound bite.

"Help to Grow" - they'll likely have paid some marketing company a fortune to come up with that sound bite.

They're always going on about that sort of stuff just before general elections but whenever they get in it just turns out to be more lending for stuff like BTLs and usually timed for just before the next general election.

In the intervening period they're happy to continue to let the economy go to pot and to continue to waste people's time.

I remember Blair doing this when asked about the 50% of people going to uni policy. "You don't want more people going to university! I completely disagree with you." He then arrogantly pointed out someone else in the audience for the next question. Fortunately the host of the show (Paxman, Dimbleby I can't remember) pulled him back and made him address the original point that the policy would only lead to a collapse in standards.

....a lot of hard work goes into buying to let don't you know....why start a business, more money to be made from bricks.....long may it continue, until the real workers have no more hard work left to do.

Maybe we should just hand over total control of the economy to Cameron. We are obviously to stupid to understand how it all works, but he can grow 500 small firms a year using the arcane knowledge gleamed during his private school education.

So now it's not just banks and tax-dodging mega-corps that the UK taxpayer has to subsidise on a continuous basis but small and medium-sized enterprises too.

Help to Grow Bail Banks is just an extension of Help to Buy Bail Banks.

The Business Bank has identified a £1 billion-a-year finance gap holding businesses back from expansion and new investment, he said.

And he promised: "We will plug this billion-pound gap by using the Government's balance sheet to guarantee loans by private lenders, or by co-investing public money alongside private money.

Cameron and Osborne are simply bank shills. Anything that says "Help" is their banker chums helping themselves to our taxes, by us underwriting their potential losses.

In 2008 when the banks were bailed out, that was never supposed to happen again. Now it's become acceptable by using the word "Help" to pretend it's people and firms that benefit. Banks lend and keep profits but losses from bad loans are socialised.

I wish these supposedly free-market Tories would stop helping.

They only having to be helping normal working people because they insist on helping others that don't need help, and most certainly should not be given help, but they get it none the less......the more help they give, the more help the rest will need....it helps to borrow to provide all this valuable assistance and help....helpful governments. ;)

Another government scheme to Pick Winners and shovel money at them.

Mandelson did something similar with his slush fund, including famously trying hard to buy Clegg's constituency for Labour with our money. I can't see this scheme being any different, though with luck the meeja will be more critical.
