After Brexit more trouble around the corner


Recommended Posts

In The Daily Express today:

Under Dr Carney's doomsday scenario the pound would crash, inflation would soar and house prices would fall by 30 percent. The UK's GDP would nosedive for at least five years, crippling finances and triggering a worse recession than the 2008 crisis. In a chilling intervention, Dr Carney warned the Bank's job was not to "hope for the best but prepare for the worst".

UK has weakest wage growth in advanced G20 nations, says ILO


Britain ranks bottom in group of nine wealthy countries for pay performance since 2009

Workers in Britain have seen the weakest real wage growth among the most advanced nations in the G20, according to United Nations data revealing the scale of the damage in the UK’s “lost decade” for pay.

According to the UN’s International Labour Organization, Britain ranked bottom from a group of nine wealthy nations for its pay performance since 2009, after the financial crisis hit.

Suffering a loss in real wage growth - which strips out the effect of inflation – of about 5% between 2008 and 2017, the UK ranked slightly worse than Italy and far behind other major G20 nations such as the US and Germany. South Korea saw the strongest real wage growth at 15%.

Exactly what Robert Reich says.
