This Guardian op-ed, by former Labour MP, is a good read. It touches many of the right buttons but is deeply flawed on the way forward.
Source: Brexit is just a distraction to the real problem: the UK’s clapped-out economy – The Guardian – Opinion – Austin Mitchell
Many of the observations in this article are reasonable but the causes are not all down to economic liberalism. What about greedy unions and a lazy workforce that’s seriously light on skills, compared to other mature economies and rapidly developing economies too?
Austin Mitchell lets his left-wing bias dictate his argument. Sadly, he’s light on strategy. I agree that the UK economy‘s over-dependent on financial services.
Surely, we need a SWOT analysis by industry to clarify the way forward, with a matching risk analysis?
