London Loves Business: Brace yourself George, and prepare to be pleasured!
Tim Knox, Director of the Centre for Policy Studies commented:
“The Coalition should take some comfort from these findings: our dreadful performance during the New Labour years is slowly being reversed. But they must also accept that government policy does effect the competitiveness of the UK economy – and that there is still so much more to do.”
Ryan Bourne, Head of Economic Research at the Centre for Policy Studies commented:
“One of the Coalition’s stated aims was to improve the UK’s competitiveness. On tax and regulation, we appear to be moving in the right direction, albeit slowly. The key going forward is to get to grips with the public finances. If the Coalition is successful in doing this then it appears that their other policies are putting us in a better position to compete in a globalised world economy.”
