Inequality driving 'deaths of despair' - BBC News
there is income inequality
there is health inequality (air)
there is political inequality, your voice only heard when you have money to donate and can pay lobbyists.
>> electoral reform (1), limit lobby influence and party donations (2), citizens assembly, devolution might have failed.

Widening inequalities in pay, health and opportunities in the UK are undermining trust in democracy, says an Institute for Fiscal Studies report. [...] The think tank warns of runaway incomes for high earners but rises in "deaths of despair", such as from addiction and suicide, among the poorest.

It warns of risks to "centre-ground" politics from stagnating pay and divides in health and education.

The report says such widening gaps are "making a mockery of democracy".

The Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), one of the country's leading research institutes, is launching what it says is the UK's biggest analysis of inequality.

That will be chaired by Nobel Prize-winning economist Prof Sir Angus Deaton.

Almost all the 10 million jobs created since 2005 are temporary — Quartz
“We find that 94% of net job growth in the past decade was in the alternative work category,” said Krueger. “And over 60% was due to the [the rise] of independent contractors, freelancers and contract company workers.” In other words, nearly all of the 10 million jobs created between 2005 and 2015 were not traditional nine-to-five employment. - https://www.reddit.com/r/Economics/comments/79jmuh/almost_all_the_10_million_jobs_created_since_2005/

Falling unemployment is great for the economy? Try telling cleaners like Irene | Stefan Baskerville | Opinion | The Guardian
While UK unemployment fell by 75,000 in the three months to July, bringing the jobless rate down to 4.3%, these figures disguise a disturbing trend in the British labour market – one of falling wages, rising insecurity and false self-employment. At the New Economics Foundation, we carried out research that shows two in every five people employed in the UK are in “bad jobs” – work that doesn’t provide a secure, living wage.

Britain’s young suffer as austerity continues to take its toll | Letters | Business | The Guardian
It is governmental negligence when the poorest young citizens do not have enough money to heat a home or buy a healthy balanced diet. Universities report time and time again that cold homes increase rates of respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, excess winter deaths and mental illness. Inadequate diets increase the risk of malnutrition, obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Debt with insufficient income impacts on health indirectly through increased stress, depression and anxiety, and suboptimal coping behaviours – such as increased rates of smoking and drinking.

After the crash in 2008, the Queen asked: “Why did no one see it coming?” Ten years later, she might well ask the same question about the rise of early deaths among young people.

Government review to order zero-hours contracts overhaul - BBC News
[campaigners are not happy with the watered down draft] The new "right to request" fixed hours could be used by some of the 900,000 people on zero-hours contracts, a number that has risen from 143,000 in 2008.
The contracts have been attacked for allowing some firms to keep people in insecure work, depress wages and deny people their full employee rights. [...] "Two years ago our staff started to tell us they needed some form of contracted hours because they wanted to get mobile phone contracts, car loans and - as they got older - mortgages to buy houses. [...] companies are using the "self-employment" status of people who work for them to avoid tax liabilities such as national insurance payments.

Donald Trump, Marine Le Pen: Wie Wirtschaftskrisen Populisten helfen - Kolumne - SPIEGEL ONLINE
All das passt zu Zahlen, wonach - auch in Deutschland - eine große Minderheit seit Jahrzehnten real an Einkommen verliert. Und der Abstand zwischen Gewinnern und Verlierern atemberaubend groß geworden ist. Und es passt zum verbreiteten Gefühl, dass nur noch schwer nachzuvollziehen ist, welche Macht Konzerne ausüben. Und wie wenig die Regierungen dem noch entgegenzusetzen haben. [...] All das lässt sich nicht mit ein bisschen mehr Konjunktur beseitigen. Wie der französische Ökonom Thomas Piketty diagnostiziert hat, gibt es eine fast automatische Verschärfung der Ungleichheit - schon weil mit großem Geld mehr zu verdienen ist als mit harter Arbeit.

A hard truth for Leave voters: Brexit means big government
Britain has seen a renaissance in jobs since 2013, of that there is no doubt. But most of those extra jobs were among the self-employed or fell into categories that can only be described as insecure and low-paid. When companies finally took the plunge and advertised full-time jobs from 2014 onwards, around a third went to migrants. [...] It is this mostly older group of workers across the developed world, worried about their pay, pensions and conditions of employment, that want to slam the brakes on globalisation and reject the remedy proposed by big business: greater labour-market flexibility and only limited job protections. [ Globalisation as a great rebalancing of the world economy between the west and the rest (BRIC and co) ] [...] Only government can provide the cure, with a commitment to invest where the private sector cannot or will not go.

Das Scheitern der „Gesellschaft“.

Ich beziehe das nicht nur auf „Islamisten“ oder religiöse Fanatiker. Wir müssen uns doch auch fragen, wie es sein kann, dass selbst Menschen, die in unserem Land geboren wurden, dazu kommen, diese Gesellschaft rigoros abzulehnen.

British households doing less cleaning, DIY and gardening, says ONS
[80% of 2015 GDP growth was consumer related][home improvement is bell weather signal] [...] Over the past decade British waistlines have expanded with obesity reaching crisis levels. Yet the ONS estimates that, in the home at least, the number of calories consumed has been falling. [...] Another significant change is the value put on “transport services” provided by households. This week record car sales were reported, jumping to more than 500,000 in March alone, yet the number of miles driven by households – to go to work or the shops, collecting children from school, etc – remains significantly below the levels recorded a decade ago. [...] It attributed the fall to petrol costs and pressure on household budgets after the financial crash. [...] . Time spent on DIY is down the most – by 20% since 2005. ...

Waiters And Bartenders Rise To Record, As Manufacturing Workers Drop Most Since 2009
On the surface, the March jobs reported was better than expected... except for manufacturing workers. As shown in the chart below, in the past month, a disturbing 29,000 manufacturing jobs were lost. This was the single biggest monthly drop in the series going back to December 2009. But not all is lost: as has been the case for virtually every month during the "recovery", virtually every laid off manufacturing worker could find a job as a waiter: in March, the workers in the "Food services and drinking places" category, aka waiters, bartenders and minimum wage line cooks, rose again to a new record high of 11,307,000 workers, an increase of 25K in the month, offsetting virtually all lost manufacturing jobs. This is how the two job series have looked since the start of 2015: 24k manufacturing jobs have been lost in the past 14 months compared to an increas of 365K food service workers.

Angestellte bei Airbnb und Uber: "Diese Jobs schaffen ein neues Prekariat"
AirbnB und andere Firmen tun so, als hätten sie eine soziale Mission. Doch laut dem Buchautor Tom Slee beuten sie ihre Angestellten schlimmer aus als herkömmliche Firmen - und begünstigen totale Überwachung. // SPIEGEL: Es gibt Ökonomen, die sehen in diesen neuen Jobs auch eine Chance.

Slee: Diese Jobs schaffen ein neues Prekariat. Die dahinterstehenden Plattformen tarnen sich als Innovation, bauen aber auf unbegrenzte Verfügbarkeit und darauf, Arbeitsgesetze auszuhebeln und alles Risiko den Kleinunternehmern aufzuhalsen. [...] SPIEGEL: Uber und Co gerieren sich oft als Plattformen für freie Miniunternehmer. Sind sie das wirklich?

Slee: Die Leute sind scheinselbstständig, oft werden sie wie Angestellte behandelt. Tatsächlich haben sie etwa die Pflicht, 90 Prozent der angeforderten Fahrten anzunehmen, sonst werden sie gefeuert.

As unicorn startups send customer service gigs to the hinterland, is Silicon Valley exporting its prosperity, or just dead-end jobs?
In the end, only a couple of the San Francisco Lyft staffers decided to go to Nashville. Some scrambled to find new jobs in the company, and the rest got severance and left. Six months later, two people I talked to are still looking for jobs, in a city that boasts a 3.4 percent unemployment rate. “I feel a little burned by this experience,” said one. “There’s just this understanding that if you work for customer service in the tech world you’re not valued. Those are soft skills, and associated with women, they’re not super valued.” [...] With their skills deemed better suited to Nashville, Lyft’s workers can’t help but internalize another message about whether they belong in increasingly Darwinian San Francisco. “It doesn’t make any fucking sense to live in one of the most expensive areas in the country and work in nonprofit development,” one told me.
Another customer service worker I’d talked to from a big software company decided that if she wanted to stick around the Bay Area, it was time to teach herself to code.

A day in court showed me the misery of Britain’s housing policy | Polly Toynbee | Opinion | The Guardian
The housing crisis they inherited has worsened as rents rise, but David Cameron and George Osborne’s cuts to social housing are a bizarre response: the housing and planning bill going through parliament marks the end of the social housing era. Not by accident but by deliberate policy, 88,000 council homes to rent will be lost, says the Conservative-controlled Local Government Association. Labour says the total will be 180,000 by 2020. Money is sucked out of social housing into the Treasury, as the 1% rent cut saves on the housing benefit bill by stealing funds due to pay for new social homes. Half of all renters get some housing benefit, with the continuous rise in rents. Cutting that support simply propels more into homelessness.

Welfare to work programme failing disabled and ill jobseekers, say charities | Politics | The Guardian
Government urged to overhaul Work Programme and refocus on offering support to mentally ill people instead of putting pressure on them to find jobs [...] Companies delivering the >> Work Programme << admitted it had been hard to find employment for many jobseekers in this category and more investment was needed to prepare them to move off benefits and into work. [...] A performance briefing by the ERSA, the trade body for Work Programme provider companies and charities, said: “It should be remembered that many of the jobseekers in this group will never have received intensive employment support before and are a considerable distance from the labour market. “Performance in this group is rising, but it is going to take far longer to help these jobseekers back into employment.”

How Legal Immigration Failed Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Our immigration system hinders entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity. Success in the tech industry, where whole new job categories are created overnight, requires deep familiarity with trends, products and technologies. Learning opportunities abound — if you’re willing to transition to new roles, educate yourself, work on different products or switch companies altogether. Building your own startup, or even joining one, can be the best career move; it offers remarkable potential for growth by wearing multiple hats in an expanding organization. The labor market benefits from this flexibility not just with an improved and adaptable workforce, but also one that creates jobs. The immigration process impedes all these possibilities. [...] [ reset process when switching companies ] [...] And that’s not even the worst part. If you get laid off, you must leave the country. Immediately. [...] Try telling your VC you spent $25,000 of their $1 million funding on immigration fees

There’s nothing good about the rise in zero-hours contracts – ban them now | Peter Fleming | Comment is free | The Guardian
Yet the growing trend, which British employers love, is steadily eroding what used to be called “stable jobs”. We are not just talking about teenage fast-food employees or the struggling artist who lands a call-centre gig to tide them over. Universities and the NHS are among those who have embraced this onward march of workplace rationalisation. [...] Studies looking at the effects of economic insecurity are poignant here. According to some behavioural economists there is no doubt that the endless worry caused by economic uncertainty impedes the body’s immune system and you get sick more. But it also starts to mess with your ability to reason. People start making bad decisions. A bad situation can easily get worse. [...] Zero-hours contracts help to subsidise rich corporations and businesses. [...] phase neoliberalism, with its plutocrats, oligarchs and rentiers back in full swing. [...] But as an astute economist recently put it, we can no longer afford the rich.

Government scheme to rehire former civil servants on zero-hours contracts | Politics | The Guardian
Retired and redundant civil servants are being re-recruited to government jobs under a pilot scheme launched by the Cabinet Office. Some former staff are being re-employed using zero-hours contracts when full-time employees cannot cope with the workload, a leaked document shows. The disclosure of the pilot, dubbed by opponents as a “Dad’s Army” solution to Whitehall’s staffing crisis, comes as mandarins brace themselves for further cuts. More than 80,000 full-time civil servants have left their jobs since 2010 with a similar number expected to leave during the current parliament.

Number of workers on zero-hours contracts up by 19% | UK news | The Guardian
Office for National Statistics says number of people reporting that they work on contracts with no minimum hours has risen to 744,000 [...] “The effect of zero-hours contracts on market behaviour and outcomes is thus likely to be greater than their incidence might suggest.” He also said that more employers would stop offering full-time permanent contracts to avoid paying the steep rise in the national living wage for the over-25s that comes into force next April. “In an otherwise very lightly regulated UK labour market the forthcoming large hike in the minimum wage when the national living wage (NVL) is introduced next year might act as a further incentive to employers to increase their use of zero-hours contracts – which are already very prevalent in sectors where the NVL will bite hardest - in order to minimise the impact on total labour costs.” [ study shows ppl are worse of, much more worse off ] &!

Jobseeking Surrounded By Fictions, Myths And Convenient Narratives | Welfare Weekly
It is worth remembering that the origin of the social welfare payments by the state was to stop these kinds of moral judgements being made about a deserving and an undeserving poor. The state officially supports the stereotype of sympathy for the ‘deserving poor’ and scorn for the near criminality on the part of ‘scroungers’. [...] unemployed people are forced to drink this [Tories] cool-aid or face destitution. [...] Underlying all this is the deeper fiction that individuals are responsible for their own state of unemployment. [...] There is a broader change in the world of work, - neo-liberalism - whereby the rules developed at the height of the industrial revolution are now fully circumvented by employers [...] transfer the risk and responsibility around labour from the organisation (and state - ie keeping national workforce competitive through various means of education) to the individual.

More must be done to help people with mental health problems stay in work | Society | The Guardian
More help is urgently needed to help people with mental health problems stay in their jobs, says the government's chief medical officer, warning of the toll of mental illness on individuals and the economy. Dame Sally Davies said that around 70m working days were lost to mental illness last year, costing the economy £70 to £100bn. The number of working days lost to stress, depression and anxiety has risen by 24% since 2009, she says in her annual report. Yet 75% of people with diagnosable mental illness get no treatment at all.

Japan's economy shrinks by 0.4% in a blow for 'Abenomics' growth plan | World news | The Guardian
the country’s main Nikkei stock market index was up strongly by 0.6% as investors expected the government to unleash more monetary stimulus. “Should growth remain sluggish for another quarter and inflation expectations start to fall, the odds of additional monetary easing would increase substantially,” analysts at DBS said in a commentary. Private consumption, which accounts for about 60% of Japan’s GDP, fell 0.8%, as exports dropped 4.4%. “The sharp plunge from the previous quarter’s surprise growth was partly due to disappointing demand for Japanese products in the US, Chinese and other resource-exporting markets,” SMBC Nikko Securities said in a commentary. “Sluggish wage growth and bad weather drove down consumption at home,” it added. // no demand led recovery. debt fuelled recovery! little is fixed thus nothing (kogs) fits and runs by itself as one would expect. // [...] convincing people to splash out on consumer goods has been a struggle

Joseph Stiglitz: It’s Time to Get Radical on Inequality - YouTube
Nobel laureate Stiglitz, author of The Price of Inequality and The Great Divide, studies the forces driving inequality and what is at stake if it continues. In his view, bad economic thinking deserves part of the blame — fanciful ideas like trickle-down and the notion that economists should try to increase the size of the economic pie and let the politicians worry about distribution. On the contrary, Stiglitz sees distribution as a problem economists must confront. He warns that an economic system that doesn’t raise standards of living for most Americans is a failure. [...] monopoly rent = too big to fail/tbtf (bailout) == cost to society/economic damage == where was antitrust!? monopolies are less productive & costly eventually in the long-term. rent exploitation through lobby! [...] this is bad for everyone, rising inequality, lower inequality is an econ multiplier // &!

Was treibt die Menschen zu Pegida? | rbb Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg
Protestforscher Prof. Dieter Rucht im Interview - Was treibt die Menschen zu Pegida? Prof. Dieter Rucht arbeitet im Wissenschaftszentrum Berlin und erforscht seit Jahren soziale Bewegungen und politische Protestformen. In den vergangenen Wochen hat er Pegida-Anhänger befragt und die Demonstrationen in Dresden beobachtet. Ressentiments gegenüber Fremden und den Schwierigkeiten demokratischer Willensbildung, die auch sozialisationsbedingt sind, sieht er als Ursachen des Zuspruchs für Pegida.

Jürgen Trittin: Plädoyer für linke Reformen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Heute ist es für viele Menschen, gerade wirtschaftlich Schwächere, schwer geworden, dem Begriff "Reform" etwas Gutes abzugewinnen. Viel zu oft war Reform ein Synonym für sozialen Rückschritt & Ausschluss aus der Gesellschaft. Reform heute ist neoliberal aufgeladen, es steht für Deregulierung, für weniger Sicherheit, mehr Armutsrisiko & weniger Demokratie. Diese reale Erfahrung hat die Angst vor Veränderung erhöht. So haben Konservative leichtes Spiel. Das Bittere ist: Für diese Diskreditierung von Veränderung, für die Umdeutung von Reform sind auch Regierungen der linken Mitte mitverantwortlich. Links reden, rechts wählen - das ist keine deutsche Marotte. Als Folge der Finanzkrise wurden in Europa erst einmal reihenweise konservative & wirtschaftsliberale Regierungen gewählt. Gerade dort, wo die Krise wirklich zugeschlagen hat, zeigte sich wieder einmal: Krisen sind keine guten Zeiten für eine Politik der linken Mitte. [GroKo: Das allermeiste bleibt, wie es ist.] youtu.be/yAmiQJYqjxM
