Mythbuster: The National Debt

"There is no such thing as a ‘national debt’. There are notes and coins, National Savings and Investments accounts and the bonds that pension funds, life assurance companies, banks and overseas governments like to save in. And there is also the £635 billion the government includes in what it calls the national debt but which it actually owes itself. Where’s the debt in all this?"

Rebuilding Prosperity From The Ground Up

"Public Enterprise is an important tool for augmenting our recovery strategy. A dozen or so new publicly-owned commercial enterprises could act as anchor bolts to help firm the foundation of a recovered economy. In fact, we could actually go one further. If we want our recovery strategy to be based on a prosperity that wells up from below, rather than trickles down from above, public enterprise may be the exact tool we need."

Mythbusting

"A great deal of what is said about the economy is either wrong, or mumbo-jumbo. The Mythbuster series is being published on the Tax Research UK blog to tackle the issues that cloud understanding of our economy."

Resilience Economics

" We need an economy which is resilient in the face of these crises. But we also need an economics which recognises that it exists to serve not the economy or an ‘economic class’ but to serve society."
