The ones that are working do...which aint many!

Advantages: We will work hard is we have a job
Disadvantages: The underclass is exploding

...One-in-five people of working age don't have a job in Britain for what ever reason. The middle class go to university to avoid banal jobs whilst the working classes do those jobs because they can't afford to go to university. University can no longer have ...

Review of Do Brtis work too many hours in the week?

Can we borrow our way out of debt?

Advantages: Everyone would prefer growth…
Disadvantages: …but we're in no position to gamble on achieving it

Austerity or growth? Oh, if only. If only it were that simple. If only these were alternatives between which we could choose at will. Then we could all unanimously put our crosses in the “growth” box, breathe a collective sigh of relief, proceed to ...

Review of Considering the UK's current economic status, what path should be taken: 'growth' or 'austerity?'

Neither - Let's Focus on People's Well-Being

Advantages: Happiness is more important than money, so this is what policy should aim at
Disadvantages: Of course government can't make you happy (but there are things they can do to facilitate it)

It may seem that this question is a difficult one to answer, given that I’m not a professional economist. But, in fact, the notion that one needs a degree in economics is, I think, misguided. Economists can (in theory) tell you how to achieve given ends, ...
