How the world’s greatest financial experiment enriched the rich
In a little under a decade, central bank “kitchens” in the US, Europe, the UK and Japan have inundated financial markets with more than $8trn using a system dubbed “quantitative easing” (QE). This equates to around $10,000 per man, woman and child in the countries whose currencies they guard.

Millions may lose promised pension payout - BBC News
gov has to bail out again corporate greed // Three million savers in final-salary pension schemes only have a 50/50 chance of receiving the payouts they were promised, a study has concluded.
Some employers were under pressure to meet their pension obligations, the Pensions and Lifetime Savings Association (PLSA) said.
High-profile cases such as the BHS collapse have highlighted concerns over the future of workplace pensions.
The PLSA said one solution could be the pooling of resources into "superfunds".

Where have all the movers gone? - Council of Mortgage Lenders
It should be known by now that the policy of a home owning democracy supported by London and exploited by London was and is and will be a catastrophe to the productivity and skills of this economy. Because of the misdirected money flows into unproductive houses (capital, asset for retirement, welfare, social mobility of kids). To the contrary of Germany. When policy of capital investment is geared towards poductive investments, assets, capital, skills, expansion, R&D. And where renters have rights! //&! - The housing ladder only worked because of the unique economic conditions of the late 20th century. It's now broken and unlikely to recover. & - and houses don't pay taxes (NI, pension pot).

First fall in consumer spending for almost 4 years
Consumer spending has fallen on an annual basis for the first time in almost four years [...] Adjusting for inflation, real consumer spending by British consumers on Visa debit, credit and prepaid cards in May was 0.8 per cent lower than in the same month last year. Visa said that seasonally adjusted spending was 1.8 per cent lower in May compared to April. The figures are unofficial, but suggest that sluggish economic growth continued in the second quarter, after a first quarter in which the UK grew at the slowest rate in the G7. [...] household consumption, which accounts for more than 60 per cent of the economy.

Britain’s economy is broken. We desperately need new ideas | Tom Kibasi | Opinion | The Guardian
If the country was economically bankrupt in 2010, it is intellectually bankrupt in 2017. On the eve of the general election, politicians of all parties have rarely been so devoid of progressive ideas [...] Yet in substance, May’s approach remains mere tinkering at the edges of economic policy. The Conservatives remain stubbornly allergic to – or ignorant of – Keynesian macroeconomics. [...] [and housing and real estate lending distorting the lending picture. houses are not productive!

[ uk banks overinvested enabled by political policy into houses and high streets. underinvested in productive capital like R&D companies in general etc ] >> But it doesn’t increase the productive capacity of the economy one iota: a more expensive house doesn’t produce more intelligent children, and a higher share price doesn’t boost a company’s productivity (though it can indirectly boost its capacity to raise funds for investment). [...] Debt-financed asset purchases are thus fundamentally a Ponzi activity: // not just tight housing supply is increasing prices, but also easy credit/debt/mortgage market! // [...] ultimately, there is a limit to just how much debt individuals and corporations can take on – even with low interest rates

Tory spending pledges on police, education and childcare 'at risk' | Politics | The Guardian
[ after 7 years of austerity, no end in sight, debt keeps climbing, no to little investment, ... now you have to break promises from 2010 that there are protected budgets, ... to meet your fucking debt reduction promise ] Conservative promises to protect spending on police, sixth form education and childcare are at risk as Philip Hammond demands £3.5bn in new cuts from his cabinet colleagues, according to an analysis by the IPPR thinktank. The IPPR believes the government will not be able to hit its savings target, even allowing for proposed budget cuts, at the same time as meeting spending promises made by George Osborne when he was chancellor. [...] when the Treasury announced a new new drive for “efficiency savings” earlier this week, the only spending commitments that were reaffirmed were Conservative manifesto pledges to protect the core schools budgets and the NHS; and a subsequent promise to meet the Nato target of spending 2% of GDP on defence. [...] “the police budget could now face a further £250 to £500m in cuts that the public were not aware of”. [ LOTS OF UNINTENDED CONSQUENCES ABOUND, YOU SAVED HERE, BUT COSTS CREATED THERE, KNOCK ON EFFECTS! SHORT AND LONG-TERM! ie skills and social mobility, meaning less taxable income in the future bc stagnant wages & living standards, then you still try meet you debt reduction targets and you start cutting off fingers, hands, foot, ... ]
