  • Time to consider controlling public spending?
    The government is right to spend substantially to offset the lockdowns and other anti pandemic measures, all the time they stop people working or prevent businesses trading. Once they do at last remove the regulations which damage jobs and the economy there should be a sharp fall in public spending and a large rise in… Read more »

    A useful point to grasp is that physical investment - investment in physical things - isn’t the way that a modern economy adds value. Or not the bulk of the value being added.
