Web links for 23rd November 2009

23 Nov 2009, by in Web links

  • New analysis from the ONS on how the recession has affected labour markets across the UK’s regions and nations (pdf)
  • Duncan’s Economic Blog on Cameron’s CBI speech. David Cameron claimed today that higher public borrowing was damaging the economy. Duncan responds to one of his key arguments in his usual well-informed fashion.
  • A YouGov poll for Oxfam has found 53% of the British public would support a transaction tax to raise money to help poor people affected by the economic crisis in the UK and abroad and to cope with climate change, whilst only 28% would oppose the idea.
  • Richard Arthur of Thompsons Solicitors writes on Left Foot Forward: “On Friday, the FT reported that the British Chamber of Commerce were seeking for a three year moratorium on labour legislation. This is misguided. It fails to take account of the UK’s obligations under EU law as well as the fact that many of the measures likely to be implemented are, or already have been, subject to staged or delayed implementation.”
