What will cost more than lifting the public sector pay cap? Not lifting it | Faiza Shaheen | Opinion | The Guardian
[finding efficiencies ... ] Let’s start with costs of recruitment and retention. This is a big one. Job advertising isn’t cheap and new recruits take time to settle in. Last year, a study found there had been a 61% rise in advertising spend since 2010 in secondary schools alone, costing £56m in 2015. Shortages in the health service mean NHS Trusts are paying millions every month to agency and bank nurses to ensure there are adequate levels of staff on wards.

Stress-related leave has also increased in the public sector as workers are understandably getting run down working in understaffed schools and hospital wards. This is just staff – what about the costs to our children of being in classes too big for them to maximise their learning or to a sick individual who has an operation delayed?

The Fix: Can The Junior Doctors' Strike Save The NHS? ( Novara Media )
new junior doc contract is a back door to privatisation in the future. those new contracts. [...] some areas of healthcare will always be unprofitable ... [...] 7 day NHS is smokescreen [...] stealth cuts (pay and pension already, now contracts, and also the bursaries turned into debt contracts thus that item off the gov balance sheet) [...] "need to treat the public as grown ups ... that is how much health care for a sick and old population cost." [...] "we need honesty"

Junior doctors' row: Time for the nuclear option? - BBC News
Ticker bbc.in/1TS2fBY &! BMA rejects final offer - bbc.in/1Q88sno &! bbc.in/1SJRaUx //&! [ 7-day NHS, treating Saturday not as a weekend day thus no extra pay. ] News that junior doctors have rejected a final "take-it-or-leave-it" offer from the government in the contract dispute means the nuclear option - imposition - is now a real possibility. [...] [ should BMA continue w strike action? Or should Junior Doctors concede defeat? And grant nasty party their victorious 7-day NHS for a sick population of babyboomers ... and then move on, to Canada, New Zealand, Australia, etc? ] [...] Some go abroad - to travel and to work - while others are tempted by opportunities in alternative sectors, including the pharmaceutical industry and (apparently) cruise liners who employ ship doctors. And Scotland and Wales would no doubt welcome some of the best English trainees into their health systems given half the chance. [ imposition may be short-termism, but long-term stakes could not be higher! ]

Adam Posen: What Japan and the UK Demonstrate about Macroeconomic Stimulus - YouTube
Confidence Fairy - Paul Krugman. (sov debt crisis) only applicable if you don't have a central bank. like Greece. that can do QE as much as you need to stabilise monetary system. ie stop deleveraging, only serving debt. meaning deflation. // different QE, diversity. shift risk appetite to more riskier debt. ... // fiscal activism can't overcome austerity ... // UK has it work because it doesn't have the manufacturing base. but its population is growing, not shrinking. but job creation - multiplier to economy is 1 or lower because of mostly service sector job creation which lot need to access welfare state through tax credits. // min 11. Gordon Brown and Alistair Darling did lots right! GPB depreciation. budget deficit growth. But imports stayed high!!! current account deficit and trade deficit. Austerity undermines growth and BOE policy! cut you future and investment (4-1 ration). UK got no credibility bonus from bond vigilantes, no FDI inflows.

Top doctor: social inequality in UK costing 550 lives every day | Society | The Guardian
“social gradient” emerging in Britain. [...] However, it was in the field of education where Marmot said the research vividly showed how unfair life was becoming. “If everybody had the same mortality of those with a university education, then [each year] we could prevent 202,000 premature deaths.” [...] In his new book, The Health Gap, he argues that those who blame lifestyles miss the point. “Over 30 years, smoking levels have declined while obesity has soared. Have we become more responsible when it comes to smoking and less responsible when it comes to obesity. No.” [...] There is little doubt that inequality has become a feature of British life. Since 1980, the share of total income received by the top one per cent of Britain has almost doubled, to about 13% in 2011, reversing a three-decades-long trend towards greater equality. [...] “austerity agenda” had cut 5% from GDP [according to OBR].
