Comments: Economy could move to a higher speed limit

Dear David,

Well, well,
sputing polish plumbers, treasury officials, ernst & young, goldman sachs, gordon browne, MPC, last but not least handy hungarians.
Are the above ingredients to somehow stave off the inevitable, but so much needed downturn.
the enclosed link takes you a story about the Negative Equity Party
also known as New Labour. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/4824340.stm.
You see.....they can always spend our money to get out of trouble......somehow.

Best regards

Here's a more up-to-date link on that theme http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/6155652.stm - their problem is not that they've been spending taxpayers' money in this case, but the money donated and lent by rich donors.

They go on about rising employment, what about rising unemployment?

Well that's exactly the point. The economy could grow faster - and needs to - to stop unemployment rising at a time when the labour force is growing rapidly.
