The most foolish NHS privatisation yet? | openDemocracy
For the third time since 2010, the government is planning to sell off NHS Professionals, the NHS in-house temporary staffing agency. This is the latest in a long series of gradual and covert moves to privatise our NHS. The obscurity in the privatisation process is no surprise. 84% of us want a publicly owned NHS. Those who want to place it in private hands know they can’t do so transparently.

NHS bosses 'spent half of extra Autumn Statement cash on outside services' - BBC News
[ outsourcing routine ops to private providers ie hips, bariatric, cancer, ] The Health Foundation report also found that £1 in every £8 of local commissioner's budgets in England is spent on care provided by non-NHS organisations.
Anita Charlesworth, director of research and economics at the Health Foundation, said: "Rising demand for emergency care meant that NHS providers haven't had the capacity to deliver planned care and patients had to be diverted outside the NHS.
"NHS hospitals were left squeezed by sharply rising drug and staff costs with little additional funding.
"The result was big deficits that had to be covered by raids on investment budgets."

NHS at breaking point, according to British Medical Association | Society | The Guardian
“The data demonstrates the increasing pressures on the system. It provides evidence of the underlying cracks within the NHS, such as funding constraints, changes and increases in demand, disjointed care and workforce pressures,” the BMA report said.

It noted that pressures on mental health services were particularly acute, with a 44% decrease in the number of mental health beds since 2000-01. [...] “Ultimately we could reduce the need for hospital beds by improving preventive care. But cutting both preventive services and beds leads to disaster. That is what we are now witnessing.”

Teacher shortages fuelled by Brexit threat to EU nationals | Education | The Guardian
Department for Education figures show that close to 5,000 teachers from EU countries qualified to teach last year, up from just over 2,000 in 2010. The largest numbers came from Spain, Greece, Poland and Romania. The number from Greece has shot up more than sixfold – from 88 to 572 – since 2010. Yet, despite the influx, the DfE has failed to hit necessary recruitment levels for a fifth year in a row, it was revealed last week. There were not enough trainee teachers starting courses this September in three-quarters of subjects, with maths, physics, design and technology, computing and business studies all falling.

We can carry on pushing for increases in GDP, but it’s meaningless unless it translates into a recovery in living standards.

Cambridgeshire's £800m NHS outsourcing contract 'wasted millions'
[ can't run a hospital on one sheet of paper ] [...] 'Astonishing array of errors'
But the NAO's investigation into the contract - which ended just eight months after it started - has criticised the planning and the lack of data setting out the true cost of the service.
The report found the consortium had not taken account of VAT costs and underestimated both the changeover and running costs of delivering the service in drawing up its bid for the contract

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.

Parent group, Berendsen PLC, said a consultation had begun on Tuesday and would run for 30 days.
The firm said redundancies were a possible outcome but not definite.

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.

Nottingham woman, 93, found living in 'squalor'
Sevacare has been providing domiciliary care services for Nottingham City Council for five years and currently cares for 183 people
A report following a Care Quality Commission inspection in 2015 said improvement was required in two out of five areas - safety and responsiveness
The report noted: "Although there were sufficient numbers of staff, there was a high turnover, which impacted on people's views of the quality of service they received."
Sevacare was contracted to provide the 93-year-old woman with one two-hour support call and two 15-minute pop-in calls, a week.

Everything you think you know about the economy of the Internet is dead wrong - Quartz
Business-to-business digital commerce is ten times the size of the business-to-consumer space, according to the UN Commission on Trade and Development’s “Information Economy Report 2015.” Seventy-five percent of the economic value of the digital economy goes to traditional bricks and mortar businesses and not Internet companies. This is true worldwide, not just in developed economies. [...] [ ICT only employs 3% of labour market in Europe ] [ SME, SMB, Mittelstand critical for economies, not conglomerates and multinationals ] [ all the while the global digital economy is flat indeed ] [ Services have become big item number in GDP terms, and largest employer in # - 45% while non-services 23% ]

Jaguar Land Rover urged to give assurances over 36,000 British jobs | Business | The Guardian
[ Tories economic policy for the future is the small state, and nothing else, its the short-term dogma and ideology of the Tories. ] // JLR said it had turned down other locations in Europe, the US and Mexico in favour of Nitra because of a strong supply chain and good infrastructure. Poland has claimed that Slovakia offered high state subsidies to win the factory, which it was not prepared to match. Slovakia has already attracted Germany’s Volkswagen, South Korea’s Kia and France’s PSA Peugeot Citroën, which together build hundreds of thousands of cars in the country each year. The average hourly labour cost in Slovakia is below €10 (£7), less than half that of Britain, according to Eurostat figures. The plant could help reduce JLR’s reliance on Britain, where it had to offer an improved pay and pensions deal last year to avoid strike action.

George Osborne will spend more than ever. Don’t be fooled by his ‘40% cuts’ | Simon Jenkins | Comment is free | The Guardian
The chancellor is not cutting the cost of the public sector – he just wants a different one. But even then, expect costs to balloon // he wants to outsource services with an aim to save money. but as the welfare reform has showed, this often does not save money, does not increase efficiencies, and actually cost in terms of (quality and speed of) service delivered to tax payer - what they paid for - compared to in-house solutions. Offshore companies do bid low to get contract, save on every corner, on staff pay, and incentivize employees with bonuses targeted towards short-term goals and no shared economic interest. After all its a corporate entity with profit maximization in mind and shareholder value in mind - only!

Draw up 40% cuts plans, George Osborne tells Whitehall departments - BBC News
The Treasury said "large savings" would be required of unprotected departments, which have been asked to model two scenarios: of 25% and 40% cuts to their budgets by 2020. The BBC's economics editor Robert Peston said what was being proposed would require a reinvention of some services taken for granted by the public. Mr Osborne has already unveiled £12bn of welfare savings plus £5bn of tax avoidance prevention measures - which together with the £20bn of departmental spending cuts make up the £37bn figure earmarked to get government finances back in the black. [...] "It is incredibly bad economics to compare household finances and state finances." "This is the stuff of public-service reinvention, not efficiency." bbc.in/1TOnEdG [...] Spending limits will be set for government departments, which will also be asked to examine the way they manage their assets and consider privatisation and contracting out where necessary.

Britain needs a real manifesto for growth | Business | The Guardian
There is a chronic shortage of supply in transport, energy and housing. Roads, rails and airports are clogged; we are in danger of the lights going out due to low electricity capacity and pathetic rates of house building have generated stratospheric prices. Building infrastructure produces permanent economic gain, but provokes temporary political pain. Nimbies object to disruption and we have been reluctant to compensate them properly. So it’s no surprise that people use the archaic planning system to block and delay investment projects. Politicians find it easier to prevaricate and reverse their predecessors’ decisions and set up ad hoc celebrity reviews (e.g. the coalition’s bottling out of Heathrow expansion). When the time comes for spending cuts, investment is first on the chopping block because the economic bruises only come out years later. Political short-termism is mirrored by corporate myopia which holds back innovation. There remains a lack of competition in banking. ...

Bank of England says UK economy to grow by 2.5% in 2015 - BBC News
Mr Carney warned of "underlying weakness" as the Bank gave a gloomier picture for productivity growth. The Bank revised down its productivity forecast because it sees a disproportionate number of new jobs as low-skilled and low-output. Productivity growth is now expected to improve only modestly in the coming year before remaining below past average rates. 'Underinvestment' "Today's report should leave nobody in any doubt about the fundamental role of productivity growth in the UK economy's performance," said Aberdeen Asset Management chief economist Lucy O'Carroll. "The Bank of England has downgraded its growth outlook, and Mark Carney has put poor productivity right at the centre of the story. "He may have put part of the productivity disappointment of recent years down to a disproportionate pick-up in low-productivity jobs, but he has also admitted that underinvestment has played a role." [...] [+ EU&Global (China) headwinds] = in no rush to raise interest rates. &! bbc.in/1RIb9Ah

Naturally, wearing my economic editor's hat, I can be sad that there hasn't been more explicit debate on the wealth-creating imperatives of boosting lacklustre productivity, reducing record personal debts and re-engineering our corporate sector to cope with the Ubers and the indomitable new sharing economy. But the issues that are on the table are huge, arguably the most important of my political lifetime.

Uber, the Rashomon | PandoDaily
[ low skill, routine job ] When an Uber glides to its appointed pickup point, what do we see? Do we see an innovator hastening the inexorable shift to a new information-based economy? Or an arrogant bully using cheap capital, greed, and a dangerous, misogynist culture of convenience to consolidate a trillion dollar market? Or do we see both? [...] I’m sure pure Uber defenders exist, but the truth is, most of us are worried about the sheer expression of capitalistic force that the company represents. [...] Uber is the poster child for our global conversation about the role of work in our society, and about the kind of company we want to create, work at, and celebrate. [SV] its male-dominated, aggressive philosophy of “breaking things fast” and “asking for forgiveness rather than permission.” Uber feels inevitable — a uniquely of-the-moment company, a mirror held up to the Valley’s aggregate psyche.

If The UK Economy Is Doing So Well, Why Does It Feel So Bad? — Bull Market — Medium
( http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-32163541 ) Certainly in the case of the UK, productivity growth (the ultimate driver of higher living standards) has been exceptionally weak. And even if the UK is an exceptional case, productivity weakness has been widespread globally - as Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee member Martin Weale has recently argued. As Karl Whelan has argued, there are reasons to worry that this reflects a longer term trend rather than just a hang-over from the financial crisis. In other words, if we are trying to explain weak growth we may need to pay as much attention to the supply side of the economy as the demand side. [...] Professor Summers, his broader secular stagnation thesis does take into account supply side factors which have reduced the desired rate of investment. [...] the political debate on the economy suffers from an illusion of control. [ gov bonds are no uber productive investments ]

A Farewell To Jobs | TechCrunch
[the downside of making yourself hard to replace is, that its equally hard to move upwards the career ladder] the gig economy tends to reduce workers to fungible, replaceable cogs. Workers devalued in that way inevitably make less money and receive fewer benefits. When you can be more easily replaced, you become, pretty much by definition, less valuable; and technology is making the process of replacing one laborer with another increasingly frictionless. [...] in principle, both nurses and engineers are reasonably fungible. Short-term nursing contracts are plentiful, as are short-term engineering projects.

Digitale Revolution: Die Deutsche Wirtschaft ist zu zufrieden - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Skepsis ist angebracht. Die Digitalisierung ist dabei, das Leben umzuwälzen. Wie die Wirtschaft funktioniert, womit wir unseren Lebensunterhalt verdienen, wie wir zusammenleben, wie wir denken, lernen und fühlen - all das ist einem epochalen Wandel unterworfen. Wer die Folgen dieser Zeitenwende vor lauter Selbstzufriedenheit unterschätzt, lebt gefährlich. Eine Studie der Oxforder Forscher Carl Benedikt Frey und Michael Osborne kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass durch die digitale Revolution 47 Prozent der heutigen US-Arbeitsplätze gefährdet sind; in anderen westlichen Ländern dürften die Dimensionen ähnlich sein. [...] Denn die Digitalisierung führt bei vielen Gütern zu einem rapiden Preisverfall. Zwischen 2010 und 2014 wurden Mobilcomputer in Deutschland um 40 Prozent billiger, IT-Dienstleistungen um zwölf Prozent, Mobiltelefonieren immerhin um neun Prozent, wie das Statistische Bundesamt vorrechnet.

Mehr als Geld und gute Worte — die bank - Zeitschrift für Bankpolitik und Praxis
Denn über den Unternehmen hängt wie eine Gewitterwolke der Megatrend „Demographischer Wandel“. Was Bundesministern und Rentenversicherern graue Haare beschert, ist längst auch Aufgabe für die Human Resources Bereiche. Weil in vielen Industrieländern der Zahl junger Menschen schrumpft sowie der Anteil Älterer und Alter dramatisch zunimmt, verschärft sich die Konkurrenz der Arbeitgeber um die besten Talente.
.
Mitarbeiterentwicklung und Talent-Management sind längst strategische Aufgaben, um die Prosperität des Unternehmens in der Zukunft zu sichern, junge Talente zu finden, zu entwickeln und zu binden.
.
Schon seit Anfang der 1990er Jahre lassen Globalisierung und Industrialisierung mit ihren Zwillingsgeschwistern Outsourcing und Restrukturierung erahnen, dass die Banklehre nicht mehr in jedem Fall eine lebenslange Job-Garantie bietet.
