A Liverpool health experiment which just might save the NHS - BBC News
[ a bomb oozing, not exploding, just getting bigger & bigger & each passing year not tackling the causes - harder to resolve. ] True to form, the wise men at the top of the NHS in their headquarters in Leeds and Liverpool have identified the source of their pain: it's us. We are victims of our own lifestyle choices, demographically ever more numerous, and culturally driven by untameable expectations. We drink too much, we are too fat, we smoke, and we do not exercise and the average age of the population is increasing. The pressure is intolerable. A morning at A&E or a GP's surgery is like a scene from The Day of the Triffids. No power on earth could save us from ourselves and we are lucky to live as long as we do. [...] Unless we change the way we do things, the NHS in England will die. [...] [ FOCUS HAS TO CHANGE - from treatment to prevention and education. ] "The NHS can't cope: no health service would cope - anywhere." // intrinsic motivation by ppl to change for the better.

Deutsche-Bank-Chef Fitschen fordert Ende der Niedrigzinsen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Es ist in der Tat sehr wichtig, den richtigen Weg zur Umkehr zu finden, um nicht sofort den nächsten Kollaps zu provozieren." Der Grat sei sehr schmal. "Alle aber sind sich einig: Die Zinsen können dauerhaft nicht so bleiben, weil sonst die nächsten Verwerfungen die Folge sind", sagte Fitschen.

Junk's heyday is here and now - YouTube "We would stress that we fully understand why the authorities wouldn't want free markets to operate today as the risk of a huge global default and unemployment cycle would still be very high. However their intervention has a cost in our opinion. Socially this might be worth paying but we do think it exists."

Economic policy: Paved with good intentions | The Economist
Although the debate [austerity] relates to the UK, I think it has a much wider resonance. And indeed, to a student of history, it has fascinating parallels; economic policy-making was rethought in the mid-1970s, but the same debates are popping up again. [...] Margaret Thatcher on ZIRP & QE "Let us print the money instead. Because what that is saying is let us quietly steal a cerain amount from every pound saved in building societies, in national savings, from every person who has been thrifty." [...] [ZIRP & QE is no free lunch - it has consequences, known and unknown, unintended.]
