Großbritannien: Regierung will Ausländer aus der Wirtschaft drängen

Posted by hkarner - 10. Oktober 2016

Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten  | 

Die britische Regierung will ausländische Wissenschaftler nicht als Brexit-Berater nutzen. Die Offenlegung ausländischer Arbeitskräfte in Unternehmen wird erwägt. Sie sollen sich einer Sicherheitsüberprüfung unterziehen.


Nicht nur EU-Kommissionspräsident Juncker will einen harten Brexit. Auch die britische Premierministerin Theresa May und und Innenministerin Amber Rudd haben sich für einen deutlichen Schnitt mit der EU und eine enge Rückbesinnung auf Großbritannien entschieden. Die London School of Economics behauptet, ihr sei klargemacht worden, dass ausländische Wissenschaftler von jeglichen Regierungsberatungen zum Brexit ausgeschlossen würden.

Die London School of Economics (LSE) berät die Regierung bereits zum Brexit. Bei einem Treffen zwischen Kevin Featherstone, dem Leiter des Europäischen Instituts an der LSE, und Nathaniel Copsey vom Amt für Angelegenheiten des Auswärtigen und des Commenwealth (FCO) soll es zu diesen Äußerungen gekommen sein. Ein Sprecher der LSE sagte der FT: „Bei dem Treffen wurde Professor Featherstone gesagt, dass nur Wissenschaftler weiter an dem Projekt arbeiten dürfen, die Inhaber eines britischen Passes seien.“ Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

Greece’s Imperfect Imperative

Posted by hkarner - 21. Juli 2015

  • JUL 21, 2015 2, Project Syndicate

LONDON – Greece and its creditors are now enacting a deal that provides financial support in exchange for wide-ranging reforms. Although reservations about the agreement abound, political conditions did not permit a better one. But the deal can – and must – serve as the basis for saving Greece and the eurozone.

For the plan to work, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras must show real commitment to a reform program in which neither he nor many Greek citizens believe. And he must forge an alliance with Greece’s pro-European parties, because only a united government will be able to deliver. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

LSE letter on Greece crisis

Posted by hkarner - 9. Juli 2015

The first priority for everybody should be to get the Greek economy on a sustainable growth path. This would benefit the Greeks, reduce the risk of financial turmoil, and maximise the amount of money the Greeks can return to their creditors. If both parties are truthful in saying that they would prefer Greece to remain in the Eurozone, then they need to recognise the need to restore economic growth. That would require the following.

The (UK) Manifesto for Growth

Investing in UK prosperity: skills, infrastructure and innovation

The latest GDP figures confirm that the UK economy has been more or less flat-lining since the financial crisis began. This column presents the LSE Growth Commission’s integrated recommendations for reigniting UK growth, arguing that an inability to achieve sustainable growth is rooted in longer-term problems arising from a failure to invest, notably in skills, infrastructure and innovation. The UK must engage evidence-based policy, in both word and deed, if it is to overcome international competition and myriad global changes.

At the beginning of 2013, the outlook for the UK economy looks bleak even for a British winter. Output has been depressed for a longer period than it was even in the Great Depression, with GDP still below the peak level of early 2008. There are serious concerns about the ability of the institutions of UK economic policymaking to steer the economy out of nearly five years of stagnation and into a sustainable recovery.

While the specific issues vary by country, this is a theme that resonates across the OECD with output below potential and unemployment generally high. The spectre of Japan’s two ‘lost decades’ following an asset crash casts a shadow over much policy debate. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »

The doomsday cycle turns: Who’s next?

Industrialised countries today face serious risks – for their financial sectors, for their public finances, and for their growth prospects. This column explains how, through our financial systems, we have created enormous, complex financial structures that can inflict tragic consequences with failure and yet are inherently difficult to regulate and control. It explains how this has happened and why there are more and worse crises to come.

There is a common problem underlying the economic troubles of Europe, Japan, and the US: the symbiotic relationship between politicians who heed narrow interests and the growth of a financial sector that has become increasingly opaque (Igan and Mishra 2011). Bailouts have encouraged reckless behaviour in the financial sector, which builds up further risks – and will lead to another round of shocks, collapses, and bailouts.

This is what we have called the ‘doomsday cycle’ (Boone and Johnson 2010). The cycle turned in 2007-8 and was most dramatically manifest in the weeks and months that followed the fall of Lehman Brothers, the collapse of Iceland’s banks and the botched ‘rescue’ of the big three Irish financial institutions.

The consequences have included sovereign debt restructuring by Greece, as well as continuing problems – and lending programmes by the IMF and the EU – for Greece, Ireland, and Portugal. Italy, Spain and other parts of the Eurozone remain under intense pressure. Den Rest des Beitrags lesen »
