A Roundup

Been busy writing this week, but here’s a roundup of what I’ve been reading:

Paul Krugman’s been looking at austerity in Europe this week. Shock horror, the more a country pursues austerity, the worse it’s economic growth is…

Five things David Cameron doesn’t want you to know about the bedroom tax, from Left Foot Forward. A lot of criticisms of the bedroom tax have been made by various people, this quite succinctly puts the arguments into bullet point form.

And we lost our triple A credit rating. It’s not that big a problem economically speaking – indeed, it could potentially help the recovery out if it leads to a weaker pound – but politically it is a clear repudiation of George Osborne’s austerity economics.
