UK Public Spending – a business viewpoint

I am at the excellent Global Leader Summit being hosted by London Business School.

Among the many interesting topics is a discussion on the down turn and its perceived length. It’s clear through overt discussions that the UK public finances are being seen as a key (if not the key) to future growth. Jeremy Darroch of Sky in particular pointed to the extent which the UK public sector permeates the UK economy (a point which is almost saturation in some geographical areas). This view was expanded by Paul Polman of Unilever who also pointed to the need for increased saving by the consumers.

Public Spending is a tightrope which must be tightened but if pulled too tight will kill off any greenshoots of recovery (illusory or otherwise). It is therefore with regret that our government have sought to use the uncertain economic climate as an excuse for ‘smoke and mirrors’ speeches and not firm figures.
