Friday’s Post

Paul Krugman with a good post about why we really shouldn’t care what the market ‘experts’ have to say. – As I’ve said before, the way to return confidence to the markets isn’t through austerity + budget cuts, it’s through restoring long-term growth to the economy. Anything the ‘market experts’ have to say on the matter is based on ideology and personal interest, not genuine interest in seeing markets grow, let alone the real economy.

‘Why 2013 will be a boom year for slum landlords and bailiffs’ writes Polly Toynbee in the Guardian.

‘If you can’t be bothered to vote, the person to blame is you’ writes Andrew Rawnsley in the Guardian. – I agree, but believe there is a major place for greater politics education in this country. It’s hard to get enthused about something if you don’t know anything about it.

Cheers
