If corporations want to maintain or increase profit margins when input costs are rising, that will absolutely contribute to inflation. Remember profit is fundamentally a cost in economic theory. It is the return on the entrepreneurship factor of production and is basically the price the business owner wants to charge for running that business versus another.

Power is a zero sum game. I would also say that the US suffers from an appalling level of regulator and legislative capture due to the power of corporate money and lobbyists to get the laws they want. You want to deal with corporate power you regulate corporate lobbying and give government the power to fine, regulate and imprison as necessary.

Up to us doing a lot of lifting here Managers will get 1500 per year provided you are earning under 50000. That's roughly 50% of managers. So they (along with Prospect) have come up with a deal that sets half of their managerial staff against the other half. They're also putting the next payrise back to Sep23 instead of Apr23 Also remember that over the last three years in total BT gave an aggregate of 2% to those workers in pay increases whilst increasing prices by over 20%. And that BT have asked the government to subsidise their social tariffs for people on low incomes. And BT generates billions in profit.

The UK voluntarily de industrialised which is why it's a basket case today. It was strong on financial service because it had been strong on financial services since the 18th century when the only real competition was from Amsterdam. I think that's pretty much what South Korea and China did though.

But the whole point is that if Argentina decided to go into smartphones its industry would need protection until it could compete with global smartphones. China was not a world leader in tech thirty years ago. Did it make that leap under free market conditions? If every country focused on what it was good at at a specific point in time the UK would still dominate most industrial production in the world and the US would still be mostly shipping tobacco and fur.

We do not have only have a choice between activating article 5 and declaring all out war on Russia OR surrendering Ukraine to Russia.

"there's no money left" was a joke note left that was in the tradition of joke notes "As everyone knows, the letter was intended as a wry joke (not to mention a private one). Indeed, there is a serried tradition of ministers leaving their successors jokey private notes for when they take over the office. In 1964 when Reginald Maudling handed over the Treasury to Jim Callaghan he left a note saying: “Good luck, old cock. Sorry to leave it in such a mess!” (Taken from medium) So you're repeating bad faith Tory lies "But Corbyn" - the guy has been gone for two years and was never in power. The state of this country. The debt. The poverty. The decline. That is on the Tories. Every last gram of it.

If I were a drug kingpin I'd factor an attrition rate into deliveries and use that to set my market rates accordingly. So if I produce 10 tonnes of cocaine, and I want to make 100m per tonne, and I know that 20% of that cocaine will never make it to the purchaser, then I simply price my cocaine at 1000m per 8 tonnes and I've got just the same amount of money. You then use a bunch of lower level people to handle the delivery meaning it can't be traced back to you. Note : I am not a drug kingpin.

No person is an island of themselves. We are all interconnected. If you don't like that idea then stop using street lighting. Money is there as a proxy for productive capacity in the economy and can be flexed depending on future growth. You can spend more than you earn providing you can pay it back in the future - debt built the world you live in today. I agree that sacrifice is necessary but the lower socioeconomic groups of the west have been sacrificing for forty years in the hope that sacrifice will be repaid. We can at least agree on your excellent fact that unicorns aren't real.

Your argument appears to be that the sector can only attract investment (or attractive returns for investors) if the price of energy is so high that it literally wrecks the economy. That is a clear case of a situation where the private sector won't take on the risk to provide a socially essential service. If the state doesn't step in at that point the service doesn't get provided (or gets provided at a price no one can afford)

Gordon Brown didn't run the country into the ground. The US financial sector blew up due to irresponsible lending and threatened to take a chunk of the global economy with it. That necessitated taking on a shitton (technical term) of public debt to protect the UK banking sector as they were exposed to the collapse in the US. That gave the Tories the ability to spin the yarn about Labour financial irresponsibility which they then used to gut public services for the last twelve years. Hence why the country is in the ground (see also : Brexit)

What's the better path though? Be poorer because wages get transferred into corporate profits (and benefits like final salary or defined benefit pensions) and then hope that a sliver of that money that you put to one side performs better over time Or Using the nation's wealth to benefit everyone, and reducing corporate profit because more of it is transferred to workers in the form of wages and better pensions? I'd also say that historically when interest rates were higher that was far better for pensions than trying to navigate the stock market.

I think the point is that companies contribute to a profit-price spiral. Their costs go up so they push up prices to compensate for the loss in profits. However at the same time they hold down wages to the best of their ability so you effectively those profits bulwarked by transfers from the lower paid sectors of the economy.

Refinancing your debt makes sense if you can get a better interest rate on it. However interest rates have risen considerably since the debt was taken out so unless Truss is going to pay it off over 200 years rather than 20 I'm not sure how this moves us forward. At this point why not just sell the NHS and use the money to eradicate inheritance tax.
