Foreign-owned firms up to three times more productive than UK-backed rivals
The ONS said it cannot tell from this data whether the companies are more productive because they have foreign owners, or whether it is simply that foreign investors buy into businesses that are already highly productive.
The gap is smaller - but still substantial - in agricultural, construction, manufacturing and production businesses. Small firms with foreign owners are just over twice as productive as those with British shareholders, while mid-sized firms create 85.7pc more output per hour worked if they have foreign investors.
The study of 2016 data showed a strong link in most industries, although the correlation was less marked in construction.

The Guardian view on tidal energy: cost is not the whole story | Editorial | Opinion | The Guardian
Yet the government is planning more nuclear power stations, including one in Wales. Different rules seem to apply for different technologies. It looks like a Tory government in Westminster snubbed Welsh Labour’s pet project.

UK industrial and economic policy - subsidies for selected few to profit. fleecing the tax payer. -
Paul Dorfman at the Energy Institute at University College London said: “This would mean the hardworking UK taxpayer and energy consumer, who are labouring under ramping austerity, are being asked to stump up for an extraordinarily expensive nuclear plant just at the time that renewable costs are plummeting.”

Capitalism’s Crisis of Stagnation and Austerity
After the 2008-09 financial crisis, the hope was that a combination of economic recovery, inflation and austerity would shrink the debt mountain. This, though, was too optimistic. Growth has been below par, inflation subdued and austerity self-defeating. (“Global debt is the danger: beware the butterfly moment” Financial Times 6 January 2018)
