This is a selfish rightwing capitalistic argument.

More than half of A&Es 'not good enough' - BBC News
Half of A&Es in England are not good enough - and there are no guarantees services will get better despite the extra money going into the NHS, the regulator says.

The Care Quality Commission said people were turning to A&E in a crisis because of a lack of support in the community.

It said services would remain under pressure until a funding solution was found for social care.

The government pledged in the Queen's Speech to reform social care.

Corporate tax avoidance: it's no longer enough to take half measures | Business | The Guardian
Given the scale of the problem, it is clear that we need a global minimum tax to end the current race to the bottom (which benefits no one other than corporations). There is no evidence that lower taxation globally leads to more investment. (Of course, if a country lowers its tax relative to others, it might “steal” some investment; but this beggar-thy-neighbour approach doesn’t work globally.) A global minimum tax rate should be set at a rate comparable to the current average effective corporate tax, which is about 25%. Otherwise, global corporate tax rates will converge on the minimum, and what was intended to be a reform to increase taxation on multinationals will turn out to have just the opposite effect.

Why WeWork's problems have London landlords fretting | Business | The Guardian
Every tenant agreement is on a new Ltd company. If the property does not finance itself, WeWork closes that down, and leaves itself (main company) protected from demands, but the landlord, who made an agreement with a subsidiary basically, high and dry. Retailers also to it this way. The main company is always protected from individual store failures.


“They [WeWork] wanted 15-months’ rent free on an eight-year lease, but they also wanted us to cough up £100 a sq ft in a cash contribution; this would pay for their fit out, desks and generous introductory fees for the brokers they use,” he said.

The eventual rental offer was good, but Wainwright said there was no UK company guarantee if things went wrong.

“The problems will come further down the line when the rent-free [agreements] expire,” he said.

The back-loaded nature of WeWork’s rental agreements is one reason why the company is, in the short-term at least, able to offer customers so many freebies.
