• It is hard to avoid the conclusion that the North of England, Wales and the Midlands have been neglected in terms of public investment in recent decades - including transport infrastructure and flood defences. It is time to redress the imbalance.

  • We’re into the11th year of economic expansion which started in mid-09, and therefore the global economy is vulnerable to a loss of confidence triggering a downturn. The Corona virus could be exactly that trigger -not because of its impact on health but due to the “fear factor”.

  • I’m not a big fan of Donald Trump but I think his trip to India will be a great success. Shame that our PM ?@BorisJohnson? has disappeared from the public gaze and is not going anywhere soon. Link

    US President Donald Trump has arrived to a thunderous reception in Gujarat on his first official visit to India.

    Mr Trump is addressing a massive public rally with PM Narendra Modi at the Motera stadium, the world's largest cricket venue.

    More than 100,000 people present at the venue burst into applause as the two leaders entered.

    Mr Trump's visit will focus on deepening ties between the world's two largest democracies.

    The event at Motera stadium is being compared to the "Howdy, Modi!" event the two men held in Houston last year, which was attended by 50,000 people.

  • Despite the #Brexit mantra of “taking back control”, the UK is in disarray. PM has gone AWOL - despite floods and Corona virus, his immigration plans have been severely criticised by business, and there is serious discord in the Royal Family. Welcome to the post-Brexit world!

  • Boris Johnson and his senior cabinet members have disappeared below the radar when the country is facing floods and the threat of the Corona virus. Cowards run away when things get difficult and that appears to be the behaviour of the @BorisJohnson Government.

  • The latest price rises will take the cost of the cheapest stamp to 52 times of the amount in 1958, the year I was born: 65p vs 3d (1.25p). If postal charges had risen in line with general inflation, a 2nd class stamp should now cost 30p, less than half the proposed 65p price!

  • My latest @CambridgeEcon blog on how we need to invest to make the transition to a sustainable low carbon economy: Link
    Andrew Sentance Thu 20 Feb 2020 16:13

    Andrew Sentance argues that to achieve a net zero economy by 2050 the UK government must invest now.

    The economic model that has developed in the UK and other major economies over the past 250 years of industrialisation and economic development is heavily dependent on the burning of fossil fuels – coal, gas and oil.

    The carbon and other greenhouse gas emissions created by this economic model are fuelling global warming and, if this is to be contained, radical policy actions are needed.

  • We’ve already had a fence blown down by Storm Dennis. ?@annesentance? is just off to buy some nails so we can make repairs! Link
    Andrew Sentance Sat 15 Feb 2020 14:19

    The UK is preparing for a second weekend of weather disruption, as experts warn Storm Dennis could inflict more damage than Ciara when it arrives.

    Severe weather warnings are in place for most of the UK - and forecasters say a month's worth of rain could fall in some places.

    The Army is being deployed as extra support in Calderdale, West Yorkshire.

    Road, rail and air travellers also face disruption, with British Airways and easyJet flights among those affected.

    It comes after Storm Ciara flooded hundreds of homes last weekend.
