Shock and awe for the financial sector
Roger Moore replies to a recent article by LSE director Howard Davies, which asserts that because unemployment has not risen "adequately" across the UK, then as a consequence rising nominal wage costs and poor productivity have so impeded a fall in unit wage costs that this leaves Britain globally uncompetitive, which in turn weighs down on sterling's value. Moore counters that " it is finance that needs the awakening jolt of the "shock and awe" treatment that is normally prescribed for the rest of us by the Chicago school of economics. If there is a low-productivity sector, where salaries clearly have little to do with output of true economic or social value, it is the very financial services sector that has betrayed both manufacturing industry and the nation. So, Mr Howard, perhaps the firm smack of focused unemployment might improve performance in this segment of the economy."

Iceland's vote gives UK cold comfort
Almost 18 months after its financial system, currency and government went into meltdown, Iceland is still spiralling downwards into what one economist has called a "vortex of debt default, unemployment, and an exodus of people". Robert Wade, professor of political economy at the London School of Economics, says Iceland's banks were doomed to fail before the impact of the financial crisis.

Savers' joy as shares soar
Savers and pension holders were given a huge boost yesterday after shares soared to their highest level in more than 18 months. Financial experts last night said the dramatic £18billion rise in the London market would help plug the pension black hole and leave hundreds of thousands better off. The FTSE 100 has been on such a strong run since its low point of August 2008 that shares have gained a massive £500bn in value. It means that pensions funds have increased by a third since this time last year and annuities by a quarter. The LSE's Dr Tom Kirchmaier quoted.

Yes economics
Central bankers and economists were among a group at the National Theatre to watch David Hare's Power of Yes, hosted by David Marsh, who co-chairs the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum. Lord Desai, emeritus professor at the London School of Economics, quipped that any play that goes on for 110 minutes mainly about economics must be good.

'There is a sense of revolt. I feel it too'
Only just wobbling out of their own recession, the German public are not best pleased by the prospect of their taxpayer-funded banks having to bail out a country that, as Vassilis Monastiriotis of the London School of Economics commented drily this week, completely "failed to internalise the logic of the eurozone - which is fiscal discipline."
