City AM Editor’s plan to boost economic growth


I continue to be impressed by the highly talented Allister Heath, Editor of City AM.  His prescription for what UK Chancellor George Osborne should do now is spot on, and something I am in total agreement with.  His recipe?  Slash Corporation Tax to 11 percent and abolish Capital Gains Tax.  Yes, the shortfall in revenue will widen the deficit for a time, but then spectacular growth will kick in to raise the tax base.  I also agree that minimum wage earners should be taken out of income tax and national insurance altogether, and that planning laws should make house-building easier.  We need to give growth a boost, and there is no doubt that Allister Heath’s recommendations would do the trick.
