A hard truth for Leave voters: Brexit means big government
Britain has seen a renaissance in jobs since 2013, of that there is no doubt. But most of those extra jobs were among the self-employed or fell into categories that can only be described as insecure and low-paid. When companies finally took the plunge and advertised full-time jobs from 2014 onwards, around a third went to migrants. [...] It is this mostly older group of workers across the developed world, worried about their pay, pensions and conditions of employment, that want to slam the brakes on globalisation and reject the remedy proposed by big business: greater labour-market flexibility and only limited job protections. [ Globalisation as a great rebalancing of the world economy between the west and the rest (BRIC and co) ] [...] Only government can provide the cure, with a commitment to invest where the private sector cannot or will not go.

How Legal Immigration Failed Silicon Valley | TechCrunch
Our immigration system hinders entrepreneurship, innovation and productivity. Success in the tech industry, where whole new job categories are created overnight, requires deep familiarity with trends, products and technologies. Learning opportunities abound — if you’re willing to transition to new roles, educate yourself, work on different products or switch companies altogether. Building your own startup, or even joining one, can be the best career move; it offers remarkable potential for growth by wearing multiple hats in an expanding organization. The labor market benefits from this flexibility not just with an improved and adaptable workforce, but also one that creates jobs. The immigration process impedes all these possibilities. [...] [ reset process when switching companies ] [...] And that’s not even the worst part. If you get laid off, you must leave the country. Immediately. [...] Try telling your VC you spent $25,000 of their $1 million funding on immigration fees

There’s nothing good about the rise in zero-hours contracts – ban them now | Peter Fleming | Comment is free | The Guardian
Yet the growing trend, which British employers love, is steadily eroding what used to be called “stable jobs”. We are not just talking about teenage fast-food employees or the struggling artist who lands a call-centre gig to tide them over. Universities and the NHS are among those who have embraced this onward march of workplace rationalisation. [...] Studies looking at the effects of economic insecurity are poignant here. According to some behavioural economists there is no doubt that the endless worry caused by economic uncertainty impedes the body’s immune system and you get sick more. But it also starts to mess with your ability to reason. People start making bad decisions. A bad situation can easily get worse. [...] Zero-hours contracts help to subsidise rich corporations and businesses. [...] phase neoliberalism, with its plutocrats, oligarchs and rentiers back in full swing. [...] But as an astute economist recently put it, we can no longer afford the rich.

Joseph Stiglitz: It’s Time to Get Radical on Inequality - YouTube
Nobel laureate Stiglitz, author of The Price of Inequality and The Great Divide, studies the forces driving inequality and what is at stake if it continues. In his view, bad economic thinking deserves part of the blame — fanciful ideas like trickle-down and the notion that economists should try to increase the size of the economic pie and let the politicians worry about distribution. On the contrary, Stiglitz sees distribution as a problem economists must confront. He warns that an economic system that doesn’t raise standards of living for most Americans is a failure. [...] monopoly rent = too big to fail/tbtf (bailout) == cost to society/economic damage == where was antitrust!? monopolies are less productive & costly eventually in the long-term. rent exploitation through lobby! [...] this is bad for everyone, rising inequality, lower inequality is an econ multiplier // &!

Jürgen Trittin: Plädoyer für linke Reformen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Heute ist es für viele Menschen, gerade wirtschaftlich Schwächere, schwer geworden, dem Begriff "Reform" etwas Gutes abzugewinnen. Viel zu oft war Reform ein Synonym für sozialen Rückschritt & Ausschluss aus der Gesellschaft. Reform heute ist neoliberal aufgeladen, es steht für Deregulierung, für weniger Sicherheit, mehr Armutsrisiko & weniger Demokratie. Diese reale Erfahrung hat die Angst vor Veränderung erhöht. So haben Konservative leichtes Spiel. Das Bittere ist: Für diese Diskreditierung von Veränderung, für die Umdeutung von Reform sind auch Regierungen der linken Mitte mitverantwortlich. Links reden, rechts wählen - das ist keine deutsche Marotte. Als Folge der Finanzkrise wurden in Europa erst einmal reihenweise konservative & wirtschaftsliberale Regierungen gewählt. Gerade dort, wo die Krise wirklich zugeschlagen hat, zeigte sich wieder einmal: Krisen sind keine guten Zeiten für eine Politik der linken Mitte. [GroKo: Das allermeiste bleibt, wie es ist.] youtu.be/yAmiQJYqjxM
