That is the message from a group of economists, including Derek Scott, for years Tony Blair’s economic adviser, in a paper for the Reform think-tank. Their analysis of Britain’s accelerating relative decline, which started even before the bubble burst, is sobering. Scott is a gifted economist who spent years battling Gordon Brown and Ed Balls; had Labour listened to Scott, Britain today would be a very different, much wealthier place. His explanation of the financial crisis as a massive intellectual error by central banks draws on the work of Bernard Connolly (now of Connolly Global Macro Advisors, the London-based economist who most precisely saw the crisis coming) and the Austrian economics of F.A. Hayek. It is highly compelling.Between 1974 and 1997, the UK went from being the 18th largest economy measured by GDP per capita to the 16th, out of 25 OECD countries. This was a dramatic break with decades of decline; the legacy of the supply-side reforms of the 1980s meant that the UK continued to improve its performance for several more years after that. By 2005, the UK ranked 12th out of 34 OECD countries, having overtaken the United States, Germany, France and Italy, though this performance was partly inflated by the bubble. Crucially, the UK’s renewed decline was apparent even before the bubble burst, with tax, spend, educational and regulatory policies emerging as a drag on GDP per capita: Britain’s relative position has dropped every year since 2005. By 2009, the UK had fallen back to 16th, overtaken by Sweden, Finland, Germany and Belgium, with the effects of the crisis kicking in.There are other fascinating revelations in the report. Out of the 27 OECD countries, only Greece, Estonia and Denmark had worse household savings ratios during 1995-2008. Manufacturing has declined so much in Britain because wage costs per unit of output have gone up (in part because of regulations and wage rises) at a time when they were falling in the UK’s main rivals, including Germany, the US and Japan. Financial services, by contrast, are the most productive sector of the UK economy at £308,000 in economic value per head (the reason why wages are so high in that industry). Finance has become increasingly productive, with employment remaining constant as a percentage of total UK employment since 1978 (at roughly 4 per cent), while the sector’s contribution to GDP has increased by 6 per cent in the last 15 years. But finance’s economic value per employee may not hold up as leverage declines to a more reasonable level. What of the crisis? Interest rates were kept too low by central banks, while the launch of the euro and China’s manipulation of exchange rates helped fuel asset bubbles. For interest rates to return to “normal” – and for them to rationally balance the cost of spending today with that of spending in the future, rather than distort everything – anticipated rates of return on investments need to rise to ensure profitability at the new, higher, interest rates. This requires lower tax rates, reduced employment regulations, a less restrictive planning system and more besides. The answer, Scott and his colleagues argue, is “more capitalism, not less.” Brown ignored Scott – let us hope Osborne doesn’t make the same [email protected] me on Twitter: @allisterheath Sunday 20 March 2011 11:55 pm KCS-content How to reverse Britain’s slow decline
Topics: Finance Finance Subscribe to the iGaming newsletter 24th June 2020 | By contenteditor Email Address Evolution Gaming has tabled a $2bn bid for slots giant NetEnt in a deal designed to strengthen their position in the US market.Stockholm-listed Evolution said the ambitious SEK19.6bn ($2.11bn/€1.87bn) offer for the casino game developer signalled its intent to become “the world leader in the online gaming industry”.The offer has been welcomed by NetEnt chairman Mathias Hedlund, who said the combination of his group’s reach in online slots and Evolution’s live casino product would give it greater leverage in expanding markets, such as North America.The offer of SEK79.93 per share represents a premium of 43% over NetEnt’s closing price on the Nasdaq Stockholm Tuesday. It is a premium of 72% compared to the volume weighted average price per NetEnt share during the 30 latest trading days.Evolution said that shareholders owning around 20% of NetEnt have already indicated they will accept the offer, while the board of directors unanimously recommended other shareholders back the bid. Board members who in total directly or indirectly control 8.48% of all shares and 23.20% of all votes in NetEnt have expressed that they intend to undertake to accept the offer.The combination is expected to result in annual cost savings of approximately €30m, compared to the combined cost basis of NetEnt and Evolution as of the first quarter of 2020.Evolution said it will publish an offer document on or around 14 August, with the acceptance period to expire in on 26 October. The transaction is expected to then be finalised on 2 November.“This strategic deal marks a significant step towards Evolution’s long-term vision of becoming the global market leader in the online casino industry,” Evolution chair Jens von Bahr said.“The combination of Evolution’s strong offering in live casino with NetEnt’s leading position in online slots will result in a world class portfolio of online games that will enable us to serve a growing customer base.“Furthermore, NetEnt’s established US positioning combined with Evolution’s existing US studios and first-to-regulated-market strategy will put us in a favourable position to capitalise on the on-going regulation in North America.”Evolution said the merger will create a best-in-class B2B provider with capacity to drive the digitalisation of the global gaming industry, noting that 90% of the global casino industry is still land-based.The group added that the US market has a potential to become Evolution’s largest market over time as individual states regulate. The merger of its existing live casino offering through the existing New Jersey studio as well as the planned studios in Pennsylvania and Michigan with NetEnt’s US presence in online slots “will accelerate this development” and fast-track the combined company’s US expansion.The business’ combined revenue for the first quarter of the year was SEK1.75bn (£150.4m/€166.2m/$187.6m), of which SEK1.23bn was generated by Evolution, and SEK517.5m. Combined operating profit would have been SEK728.3m. Evolution said it does not currently foresee that the combination of the companies will have any material impact on Evolution’s or NetEnt’s respective employees.Welcoming the bid, Mathias Hedlund, chairman of NetEnt, added: “Recently, NetEnt has vastly improved its tech and product development capabilities and thereby its growth prospects and at the same time reaching a strong position within the US states that have opened up for online casino.“With this deal, there are unique possibilities to shape a leading global B2B provider of online casino, taking advantage of the market development with continued digitalisation and strong growth, especially in North America.“Evolution’s position within live casino combined with NetEnt’s position within online slots will create a company well positioned to take significant market shares. Through this transaction, a new chapter in the development of more entertaining online casino begins, in the best interest of players, operators, employees and shareholders.”Evolution’s share price is down 9.64% at SEK553.00 per share this morning (24 June), having reached a 52-week high of SEK619.00 earlier. Its current market capitalisation is SEK110.71bn.NetEnt’s revenue increased slightly year-on-year to SEK1.79bn in 2019, with a profit of SEK428.9m, down 25.7%. Its shares are trading up 26.79% this morning at SEK71.00 per share.

Please enter your email address here The Anatomy of Fear By Becc Lester-Beam, Community Outreach Coordinator at Seminole Science Charter SchoolThanksgiving is a time for us all – little ones included – to pause and consider the many things we have to be thankful for. With the pandemic disrupting our sense of normalcy, limiting our social interactions and cancelling our plans, finding gratitude may be a bit more challenging in 2020. Here are some tips to help talk to your children about thankfulness after a difficult year.Ask Gratitude QuestionsWhile a child may have mastered saying “thank you” at the appropriate time, it’s important to dig a little deeper to ensure they truly understand what being grateful means. According to The Raising Grateful Children Project at UNC Chapel Hill, gratitude comes in four parts: noticing, thinking, feeling and doing. To help children grasp a comprehensive understanding of appreciation, parents can ask gratitude questions, such as:What are things you’re grateful for beyond physical items, like toys and games? Are you grateful for any people in your life, like a friend, family member or pet?What does this person do that makes you grateful? Do you think they do it because they have to or because they want to?How does this person make you feel? What does it feel like inside when they’re around?Is there a way to show how you feel about this person? How about writing them a note or doing something nice for them?Create a Family Gratitude ProjectWhile the family is gathered for the holidays, engage them in a group project that invites everyone to share their gratitude in a fun and interactive way. Grab a poster board or a bulletin board and ask each family member to write down five things they’re grateful for on sticky notes. One by one, share what each note says before sticking them on the board. Once everyone has shared, display your family gratitude board in a place everyone can see it. Throughout the holiday season, you’ll each be reminded of your blessings this year.Be a Gratitude Role ModelLike everything else, children learn about thankfulness by watching their parents experience gratitude. Beyond being polite and saying “thank you,” parents can make it a point to share what they’re grateful for over dinner or during a car ride. This can be particularly important during times of stress or frustration. If you’ve had a rough day, turn it into an opportunity for seeing the silver lining – and your child will do the same.This year has been tough for us all, but especially our children. Allow them the space and time they deserve to feel sad or frustrated that things didn’t turn out as they’d hoped. Then, practice these gratitude exercises. By helping your child keep things in perspective, you’ll teach them to begin doing it on their own. They’ll start to see that they have a lot to be grateful for, even on their worst days.

An order for his expulsion was issued on 11 May but he is still being held in Gaziantep, a city near the Syrian border.“The authorities had no reason to arrest Mathias Depardon and his continued detention is both incomprehensible and unacceptable, especially as he was supposed to have been expelled a week ago,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We call on the Turkish authorities to end this ordeal at once.”Depardon’s arrest is not isolated. Dozens of foreign journalist have been expelled from Turkey since fighting between the Turkish army and the outlawed Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) resumed in southeastern Turkey in July 2015.Olivier Bertrand, a French journalist with the Les Jours website, was deported in November 2016 after being arrested while reporting in Gaziantep province. Italian journalist Gabriele Del Grande was arrested in April 2017 in Antakya, near the Syrian border, and was deported after being held for three weeks.Turkey is ranked 155th out of 180 countries in RSF’s 2017 World Press Freedom Index.Mr Süleyman SoyluMinister of InteriorÇamlıca Mahallesi 122. Sokak No:4Yenimahalle, AnkaraTurkeyCc : Directorate for Migration Issues, Foreigners department19 May 2017Dear Sir,The undersigned press freedom and media organisations call on you to secure the immediate and unconditional release of French photojournalist Mathias Depardon, who has been detained for the past 10 days in southeastern Turkey.Depardon was arrested on 8 May in Hasankeyf, in Batman province, while doing a report on the Tigris and Euphrates rivers for National Geographic magazine. The following day, he was transferred to a detention centre operated by the Directorate for Migration Issues in Gaziantep, where he has remained ever since. On 11 May, ie. one week ago, the Directorate ordered to deport him. But the journalist has remained in detention ever since.This is a very difficult situation for Depardon and his family to experience. The only communication channel he has with the outside world is his lawyer. The journalist is left without explanation about his continuing detention. This information vacuum makes us increasingly anxious, and we respectfully call on you to authorize French diplomats to visit him.Aged 37, Depardon has been based in Turkey for the past five years. He is in the process of renewing his press card. The undersigned media organisations have all worked with him over the past few years and they all describe him as a highly professional and law-abiding journalist.As confirmed by National Geographic, Depardon was in Hasankeyf on a professional assignment. We understand the legitimate security concerns in this area and we fully respect the law enforcement agencies’ duty to protect Turkish citizens. But there is no ground to detain or deport Depardon. He should be allowed to continue his work in Turkey.We thank you in advance for the attention you give to our request.Sincerely, TurkeyFranceEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses EnvironmentJudicial harassmentPhotoreportageImprisonedCouncil of Europe May 19, 2017 Turkey: Joint call for French photographer’s immediate release Reporters Without Borders (RSF) Association des Journalistes Professionnels (AJP, Belgique) Elle L’Express European Federation of Journalists (EFJ) Le Figaro L’Humanité Internazionale Libération Mediapart Le Monde National Geographic L’Obs Le Parisien Paris Match Polka Der Spiegel Society The Sunday Times Magazine Télérama Visa pour l’Image VSD to go further TurkeyFranceEurope – Central Asia Condemning abuses EnvironmentJudicial harassmentPhotoreportageImprisonedCouncil of Europe News RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan June 8, 2021 Find out more Help by sharing this information Respect judicial independence in cases of two leading journalists in Serbia and Montenegro, RSF says Follow the news on Europe – Central Asia News “We’ll hold Ilham Aliyev personally responsible if anything happens to this blogger in France” RSF says June 4, 2021 Find out more

The L.A. County Office of Education had threatened to take over the Pasadena schools unless the PUSD could address its budget woes.The possible layoffs were among the action items set to be heard at Thursday night’s meeting. The public portion of the meeting was scheduled to start at 6 p.m. at the board’s offices at 351 South Hudson Ave.Specifically, the action item regarding layoffs said:* “The Pasadena Unified School District has determined that it shall be necessary to decrease the following programs and services of the District no later than the beginning of the 2020-2021 school year.”* “It shall be necessary to terminate at the end of the 2019-2020 school year the employment of certain certificated employees of the District as a result of the reduction of programs and services.”* “In determining the amount of service to be reduced, the Board has considered all assured attrition known at the time of this resolution.” Community News Top of the News Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Make a comment latest #1 School Board Set To Vote on 55 Proposed Layoffs 30 full-time elementary and middle-school teachers could be let go By KEVIN KENNEY, Senior Reporter Published on Thursday, March 5, 2020 | 3:00 pm Business News Name (required) Mail (required) (not be published) Website Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy Community News faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Get our daily Pasadena newspaper in your email box.
