Opinion: Why Small Businesses Aren’t Hiring… and How to Change That – Jeff Stibel – HBR-John Gelmini

Small businesses in David Cameron‘s UK are getting the short end of the straw from the High Street banks in most cases and they are overtaxed, over-regulated and held to ransom by local authorities wanting ever higher business rates, planning fees and car parking charges.

In addition. we have the highest energy costs in Western Europe. This morning, Dr Alf focuses on strategic moves in global energy, with Russia, China and the US all storming ahead. Meanwhile, Europe is stuck in an austerity-trap, without an effective energy policy.

Meanwhile, I repeat the UK has the highest energy costs in Europe!

David Cameron is not interested in UK based SMEs nor creating enterprise, exports on a large scale or getting the banks to lend. His priorities and policies favor the top 1%, or less of wealthy individuals and major companies which operate internationally headed up by his friends or those he would like to be.
