Surely the politics of choice is dead in the water given the state of the economy?


" is it possible to reform the public services with spending growth so slow?"

It certainly wasn't possible to reform the public services when spending growth was high. (At least not with Labour in power - I would like to see a chart of public sector productivity over the last 30 years or so.)

Anthony, part of the point of "school choice" is to force the schools to compete against each other. As in the private sector, where companies compete with each other, and manage to have productivity growth.


Surely the best strategy is to pull out all the stops for economic growth? this might mean some pretty fundamental changes to industrial policy and fiscal incentives etc.

Aren't most deficits best tackled by higher growth rather that public spending massacres?
