Canada, Australia, Germany, France: a recent report from the Resolution Foundation and the Centre for Economic Performance at the London School of Economics found that the UK’s recent economic performance has left us both poorer and more unequal than every one of them. The upside of these figures is that they go a long way to disproving the pernicious Truss-ite thesis that higher inequality is the price you pay for vibrant growth. The downside is we all have to live in this country. The same report found that a typical household in Britain today is 10 per cent poorer than their French counterparts; the poorest fifth are 20 per cent poorer. Why don’t we realise how screwed up the UK really is? - New Statesman (archive.is) Edited March 25 by pellinore Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
