Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"What we must do is win the argument that is raging throughout the world showing that embracing globalisation, not retreating into protectionism, is the best way to growth jobs and prosperity for all.

It's that "for all" part that is the tough part. Well, at least it certainly makes corporate profits and CEO salaries grow.

Well, no-compromise Gordon says this:

At the G8 St Petersburg summit [on Saturday] I will call for world finance ministers to lead the debate about who benefits from globalisation

So we shall have an answer to the question about benefits for all. Meanwhile, I'm holding my breath.

So a whole bunch of rich guys will all go, "Well, I'm better off"...case closed.

See, whatever the demonstrated reality, these guys still believe in trickle-down even when all of their policies are about sucking-up. They just can't/don't see that what's good for the economy (aka stock market) isn't necessarily good for the polulation as a whole.

keep to the Fen Causeway
