Treasury May Relax Fiscal Rules With Link

Recommended Posts

Perhaps we can recreate some kind of manufacturing base? So as not to be so dependent on the rest of the world.

Oh, but that might not work in a globalised market. Perhaps we should think of some sort of siege economy?

How will you go about that?

First you'd have to wait for a new generation to be educated in subjects other than communications, media and finance. So that's a 20 years wait before we can get started then?

20years means 20years behind other nations.

Or, put another way, 20 years in which my Engineering degree will be worth its weight in large cash holdings.... ;)

MAYBE, have you ever seen how hard the tests that the Chinese and other countries are to get their degrees versus Britain's?

too many years of top grades for poor work so as not to hurt anyone's feelings have eroded the value of Western degrees, IMO.

plus the fact that they can hire overseas for 1/4 the price leaves everything not quite that cut and dried.

We could offer to look after the economies of the rest of the world.

Our city workforce is fine-tuned to its peak & raring to go ................

Seems like we are aheading towards a US type of debt, they can't really tax you, as you dont have anymore room to be taxed. The only other way is to borrow borrow till it goes pop.

Heard this on R4 this morning. Apparently Gordon is going to sell it as a natural adjustment to allow for the end of the cycle.

We have had the HPI-MEW-BTL driven boom and now comes the bust.

Major U-turn number 28?

The guy Declan had on bbc breakfast was saying we're in better condition than our american and euro pals

Declan started to make an analogy with household budgets but didn't extend the borrowing more to adding extra years onto the mortgage

Yes I heard that. According to the 'expert' interviewer (Davis...or was it Robinson) the only two options are increases in tax or borrowing......... no mention of cuts to public spending...... why would they not mention this??????

Gordon has kept adjusting the start and ends of cycles to fit his vision of the economy since he started as Cahncellor. If he had left the BoE monitoring RPI not CPI and the public spending as per the Tories we would not be in the mess we are in now.
