In the UK, we have been through a rather exciting General Election – though as I write this, we have the same government and the same Prime Minister.
In their campaigns, all parties made us promises – of what they would do and deliver – better health care, more jobs, lower taxes, etc.
How would they pay for those promises that cost money- by raising taxes or cutting costs elsewhere. (Oh yeah, that’s going to happen!)
But how many of the parties mentioned the only real way of paying for the promises – higher productivity.
You guessed it … not one of them.
If politicians looking for solutions don’t realise that productivity is the answer – what hope is there?
