Five issues that will shape the Northern Powerhouse - BBC News
[ white elephant! lol & the double standard of Google paying 2% tax vs small businesses full 18%+ and not getting investment, R&D loans ] Will Hull thrive or suffer if transport is radically improved to the eastern fringe of the Powerhouse? There's no way of telling. Some people think investment in skills, education and training would be a more certain way of improving productivity - and business leaders are keen to ensure that these key elements are not forgotten in the rush for steel and tarmac. I asked former CBI director-general John Cridland, who is now head of Transport for the North, if there was any certainty that spending billions on infrastructure would improve productivity. He agreed there was no proof, but urged people to take a leap of faith - like the Victorian engineers.

Group of 20 Financial Leaders Agree to Act to Bolster Growth - The New York Times
Ms. Lagarde was even more explicit, making it clear that governments had for too long relied on the supply of cheap cash from central banks that have been running ultra-loose monetary policy. “Monetary policy alone will not cut it,” she said. “It is necessary, it is recommended from our perspective, particularly in Europe and in Japan still, but it will not cut it on its own. “Clearly in the fiscal sphere as well as in the structural reforms sphere, more needs to be done, and it needs to accompany and eventually take the baton from the central bank governors.”

Labour leadership races can change fast; interest rates, not so much | Business | The Guardian
The fact of the matter is that, while George Osborne is obsessed with shrinking the size of the public sector and causing hardship and misery, the real crisis in this country concerns not the size of the budget deficit, but the record peacetime balance-of-payments deficit of a whopping 6% of GDP. With this in mind, John Llewellyn and Russell Jones of Llewellyn Consulting have been urging the Bank to encourage the overvalued pound to fall towards more realistic levels, to avoid an almighty sterling crisis when the markets finally wake up to the real crisis in the British economy.

Maybe This Global Slowdown Is Different - Bloomberg View
[ warren buffet investing in america because he sees the long-term outcome of Globalisation (first was incredible pain and then a flat and then a normalisation).

Where USA is energy competitive with high skilled labour and top notch STEM, Research and R&D through its edu/colleges/university departments. Able to effectively compete. And also lobby for subsidies, gov contracts (ie defense, infrastructure! which will have to be replaced to the tune of trillions), effective tax avoidance & evasion. ] // Building global supply chains became so fashionable for Western manufacturers that they built them even when it made sense to keep production closer to customers; now they're retrenching and revising their approach.

Jeremy Corbyn wins economists’ backing for anti-austerity policies | Politics | The Guardian
In the letter to which David Blanchflower, a former member of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee is a signatory, the economists write: “The accusation is widely made that Jeremy Corbyn and his supporters have moved to the extreme left on economic policy. But this is not supported by the candidate’s statements or policies. His opposition to austerity is actually mainstream economics, even backed by the conservative IMF. He aims to boost growth and prosperity.” // UK can't compete with energy rich countries - ie through rebuilding (through subsidies) its industrial and manufacturing sector - it has to add value through expert services, knowledge, digital, research to existing products goods and services that then can be re-sold across the world - high energy cost, expensive transport through lack of infrastructure of the future, and lack of in-pipeline educated mobile youngster, is a structural deficit.

Frankreich verliert Status als Deutschlands wichtigstes Exportland - SPIEGEL ONLINE
IMF rechnet für 2015 mit einem Anstieg des BIP US um 2,5 Prozent und für 2016 mit 3 Prozent. "Wir sehen zudem eine Reindustrialisierung in den USA: Dort werden wegen der niedrigen Energiekosten viele neue Fabriken und Produktionsstätten hochgezogen", sagte Treier. "Dafür werden Maschinen und Ausrüstungen aus deutscher Produktion benötigt." Hilfreich sei zudem der schwächelnde Euro, [...] "Die Amerikaner sind relativ preissensible Käufer, auch wenn es um Luxusprodukte wie deutsche Autos geht", // Germany & UK are energy dependent, especially after Desert Storm Energy project failed. UK need the bet on STEM and digital economy and knowledge economy, added value services that can be exported & leverage "British" brand. It can not compete against cheap energy fuelled China and USA! But it did nothing, UK has to even import Nurses and Doctors now! Thanks to short-sighted ideological dogmatic austerity & policy for established businesses. low corp tax & deregulation to compete w price only.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to $80 Oil - Bloomberg View
[ new duopoly? - USA - OPEC, and OPEC not wanting that?! ] I'm sticking with my forecast of $10 to $20 a barrel. The logic behind that February projection still seems valid. Cartels exist to keep prices above equilibrium. But that encourages cheating, as cartel members want more than their allotted share and outsiders sell more to take advantage of the artificially elevated price. So the job of the cartel leader -- in OPEC's case, Saudi Arabia -- is to cut its production to accommodate the cheaters and prevent a price collapse. The Saudis had been doing that for decades, and as a result, OPEC production over the last 10 years has been flat, with all the growth instead enjoyed by non-OPEC producers, including U.S. frackers and Canadian oil-sands companies. [...] In Texas's Permian Basin and in the Persian Gulf, the marginal cost is $10 to $20 a barrel, and even lower for some Saudi oil fields. [...] Russia is desperate for anything that will earn foreign exchange. // &! bv.ms/1yKiZBs

What do the numbers say about trouble for China’s economy? - YouTube
As the second-largest economy in the world, China's official growth rate is one of those statistics that people around the world pay attention to. But some say there is evidence that its economy is in greater trouble than can be seen by the numbers. Bloomberg reporter Ken Hoffman joins Hari Sreenivasan to discuss. [...] out of property/real-estate (speculation) into stock market gambling [...] question if they can engineer economy into adding more added value output (changing type of growth, one off vs multiples (higher wages = more disposable income/discretionary spending) to feed more than one mouth once) ... before the tipping point, deceleration and falling off a cliff - bust. >> &!

BBC News - UK's oil, coal and gas 'gone in five years'
"Britain has just 5.2 years of oil." Aberdeen companies (whole region) got 2 pivot 2 off-shore windfarm tech and maintenance and tidal wave technology [clean tech - clean energy technology]. PLUS there is the decommissioning business, decommissioning of oil and gas platforms. Plus the option of building/solidifying itself as knowledge and skill hub for global oil and gas business - the mobile creative / skill-based worker. Otherwise it could turn sour quiet quickly like the areas where the coal mines and other post-heavy industry locations in the UK were - them being still smudge of economic inactivity on UK's economic landscape and economic history. "Ministers are hoping that enough shale gas - extracted by fracking - will be obtained to make a difference, the BBC's environment analyst Roger Harrabin says." The gas amount from fracking in UK is negligible, not comparable to USA even if accounted 4 landmass size & energy usage/capita. + http://econ.st/1n8oyAZ http://econ.st/1gdiesV
