Hunt 'misrepresented' data on 7-day NHS - BBC News
The Labour leader attacked Jeremy Hunt after the BBC revealed the health secretary used academically unverified and unpublished data to back his plans. Last July, in the pay row with junior doctors, Mr Hunt said there were about 6,000 deaths a year because of the lack of "a proper seven-day service". But this assertion was later questioned by academics. Emails show one of the author's of the unpublished paper, which Mr Hunt was using to justify the 6,000 figure, was unhappy with how his study was being used. [...] This figure was then used regularly by the government in its argument for changes to doctors' contracts. [ they needed it to justify back-door cutbacks to NHS budget. Same w bursaries! ] &!

Chris Hedges on What it Takes to be a Rebel in Modern Times - YouTube
If you care about the truth you eventually run into problems as the journalist who usually manipulates facts for a living. // neoliberalism sold to us through lies and manipulated facts. // 2/3rds of the country in poverty. // mania for hope is a political pacifier even for the liberals, keeping people hopeful - keeps people complacent. // moral imperative for civil disobedience. // but do not use the word hope! // game is fixed. // rebellion led by day class intellectuals. that band together with the underclass. // if you have whole-sale surveillance, you can't have investigative journalism // it's about ratings and money, they don't do journalism. << corporate media. // dismantling BBC by tories is a power play by tories (power elite) // &! - Most of the information we spread online is quantifiably “bullshit” - The internet encourages the spread of information that is emotionally resonant but factually untrue

Alternatives Management: Vertrauen als Ressource für Unternehmen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Oft werben diejenigen am meisten darum, die unter Vertrauensverlust leiden. Denn tatsachlich sinkt das Vertrauen in die Wirtschaft und das Misstrauen steigt. Das ist das Ergebnis nahezu aller Studien zum Thema Verbrauchervertrauen // &! - Twitter just made it more difficult to hold politicians accountable // Same with the Conservative Party deleting all their speeches and documents after they won majority in election and partnered up with libdems - &! // Auch Geld funktioniert nur dank Vertrauen [...] Der Systemtheoretiker Niklas Luhmann beschrieb Vertrauen daher auch als "Mechanismus zur Reduktion sozialer Komplexität". Ständiges Misstrauen dagegen mache unser Zusammenleben deutlich schwieriger, sagt Martin Schweer. [...] Schnell zeigte sich: Hatte der eine das Geschäft fair und zum gegenseitigen Vorteil abgewickelt, erhöhte der andere in der nächsten Runde seinen Einsatz. // &! - Does honesty matter ...

Solving the productivity puzzle - BBC News
UK productivity growth (as measured by output per hour worked) has been exceptionally weak since 2008. Productivity growth has actually been weak across the developed economies since the Great Recession but especially so in the UK. Beyond those facts though, there is little agreement. The talk is instead of a "productivity puzzle": solving that puzzle is the key to both a lower government deficit and to higher living standards. [...] [I]t could be that the nature of Britain's recovery explains the low productivity growth. Rather than lower productivity leading to lower real wages (as companies cannot afford to increase pay), it may be that lower real wages have encouraged firms to hire workers rather than investing in new equipment. This could have lowered productivity. [...] Much of it feels more traditionally "sociological" than "economic". // 2nd Industrial Revolution - Software is Eating the World, Self-Employment, contractors, Zero Hour Contracts, etc. &!
