  • A survey by the MS Society looks at attitudes to disability: 21% said disabled people should just accept they can’t have the same opportunities in life, 24% think disabled people often exaggerate the extent of their physical limitations (and 76% of people with MS say there has been at least one occasion when someone questioned whether they have MS because they ‘looked well’).
  • Chris Dillow asks “What is happening to profits and wages?”. He looks at GDP by income (wages, profits and ‘other’) since 1955 and says that “the wage share fell between 1975 and 1997, but recovered thereafter, only to slip back since 2009.”
