Elliott likens the UK economy to a sugar rush economy fuelled by house prices masking perilous imbalance. In many ways, this short article confirms the view of Martin Wolf, whose views I re-blogged earlier.

Perhaps, history will judge David Cameron harshly for giving George Osborne two jobs, where there has been an inherent  conflict of interest viz. Chancellor and head of Conservative Party strategy? For me, Osborne’s policies have always been more about politics than fundamental evidenced-based economic policy.

Any thoughts?

This excellent article, in China’s Global Times, caught my attention. It’s a RECOMMENDED READ. Check it out!

As I reflected on the article, two thoughts came to mind.

Firstly, it brought back a delightful few days in Zagreb last year, on our seven week road journey from Bath, UK to Cyprus. See Taking the Slow Road to Cyprus.

Secondly, I reflected on why the Global Times was not promoting some of the UK‘s equally impressive cities, like Bath or York, on the back of David Cameron‘s visit to China?

Any thoughts?
