BBC News - UK unemployment total falls to 2.16m, wage inflation to remain low
[threat of wage inflation spiral far off because of multiple underlying factors not allowing it measured wholly across the uk (taking the other country called london out of the picture)] - "Weak pay growth and the 'cost of living crisis' remains the Achilles heel of the economic recovery," said Chris Williamson, chief economist at Markit. "But it should not be long until we see earnings growth accelerate as the labour market continues to tighten. Pay growth should pick up in coming months, perhaps significantly." +++ http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/10838393/Bank-of-Englands-slack-approach-leaves-economy-at-risk.html +++ http://www.economist.com/blogs/freeexchange/2014/03/monetary-policy-0 +++ http://youtu.be/fvTdWWUkUNM?t=2m10s

Thomas Piketty's 'Capital' in 3 minutes - Newsnight - YouTube
who owns the economies assets, the ~1% individuals and international conglomerate corporations, - when return on these assets /y is greater than economic growth - inequality rises. it is all that happend even during the recovery after the GFC - 1% got richer, conglomerates and corporations got richer/sat on their cashpiles. while ie in USA Food Stamp handouts rose month over month _+++ http://www.democracyjournal.org/32/the-inequality-puzzle.php?page=all ""Piketty’s treatment of inequality is perfectly matched to its moment. [...] the share of income and wealth going to those at the very top—the top 1 percent, .1 percent, and .01 percent of the population—has risen sharply over the last generation, marking a return to a pattern that prevailed before World War I. There can now be no doubt that the phenomenon of inequality is not dominantly about the inadequacy of the skills of lagging workers."" --- +++ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gilded_Age

Career U. - Making College ‘Relevant’ - NYTimes.com
When prospective students and their parents visit, he says, they ask about placement rates, internships and alumni involvement in job placement. These are questions, he says, that he never heard 10 years ago.

The answers did not suggest a narrow focus. Instead, 89 percent said they wanted more emphasis on “the ability to effectively communicate orally and in writing,” 81 percent asked for better “critical thinking and analytical reasoning skills” and 70 percent were looking for “the ability to innovate and be creative.”
