Cutting Public Spending

How best to deal with the situation

How many economists does it take to miss the elephant in the room?

Sixty who back Labour

The biggest spending cut that would not affect how we live in the UK would be to cut all funding to the EU

To leave the EU would immediately make the public finances better. They are currently haemorrhaging funds from the public purse straight to Brussels.

The economists have blinkers on.

  1. Would these be the economists who said that nobody could have seen the financial crisis coming?

    Economics is largely a human 'sciences' field - a study of the effects that human behaviour has on the markets and the economy. Labour's understanding/respect for the natural leanings of mankind has never been strong. Perhaps that's why lef-leaning economists fail so miserably.
