Cameron and Osborne do not want “growth at any cost” as Benedict Brogan asserts, what they want is the appearance of growth and enough “feelgood factor” from those who will vote for them.
They plan to achieve this, as Dr Alf has identified, by creating a mini-housing boom, and a consumer led recovery by those people at work, through increased credit card lending and secured lending.
It is all smoke and mirrors and too little too late, particularly on the part of the so called “Business Secretary ” Vince Cable who is so complacent he is horizontal enough to work as a bed tester for John Lewis.
Dr Alf’s description of whitewashing evidence for growth is accurate and as for growth potential it will not be realized unless the Government and the country put in the hard work and pay the price.
