Great Read

Hello world. Today’s read is from long time Daily Telegraph columnist Liam Halligan. Halligan has accurately pointed to flaws in the current economic revival attempt and has pointed the finger at the current recovery effort in its unfortunate failures to lead to genuine economic growth.

In the coming weeks I’ll be discussing the economic effort as we approach the next election in 2015.

Measuring one’s standard of living can be a difficult task, as it is subjective. Moreover with measuring tools such as the Human Development Index. Pareto Index and others people quantify important aspects of everyday life and average it to give an indication of one’s living standard. I came across this tool on the OECD’s website, its certainly worth playing around with it and it’s really interesting to see where the UK ranks with other nations. Have a gander.
