The Effects of High Taxation

"Income tax is a tax on money people earn(income), which is paid to the national government". My post today is regarding the high tax rates in the UK which results in a decrease in total tax revenues and an increase in unemployment and productivity.

Cheap Child Labour: What's wrong with that?

You often hear in the news about MNCs, such as Nike and Samsung, hiring young children, and paying them minimal, to do their dirty work for them. This apparently sounds morally and ethically wrong, but in my eyes, if anything, we are helping these children and their families.

Decreasing the Deficit

It was recently published that the UK was running a current account deficit of £12.8 billion, a budget deficit of around £120 billion and a national debt of £1.3 trillion (86.8% of GDP). These figures are astonishing and seriously worrying and it is clear that something needs to be done about this.

Game Theory, Applied

Today I decided to write something on Game Theory. Yes. The exact topic which won John Nash the Nobel prize in Economic Sciences, but I doubt I'm going to win one today.

Charities are ineffective, inefficient and innumerable

With plenty of volunteering experience under my belt, I have come to the realisation that most charities have very little effect on the big picture. By that, what I mean is that there is still poverty and bullying and cancer. The billions which have been donated clearly has not had much effect.

Current Education System = Outdated + Terrible

Currently as a student, I know quite a bit about the current education system and it seems to me that the more that I seem to learn about it, the more seem to hate it. It appears to me that "education" has now become something which "decides" where you end up in life and I have come to realise that this is far from true.

If you don't like Apple, buy a Banana!

(The title is supposed to be a joke)

I have over the past few months started to come across some hatred against Apple products. Being a user of many Apple products, I was simply staggered by the fact that people can hate such an awesome company. It is simply unbelievable. Apple products are not only designed to have the best user interface, but also beautiful design to increase productivity by making you smile every time you look at one.

Why China but not India?

Over the past few years we have all been talking about the rapid growth in the east, especially China. People however give relatively a lot less attention to India, another rapidly expanding economy and tough competition to China. This made me wonder why India wasn't in the spotlight as often as China, and so I have decided to submerge myself deeper into this issue.

The Greatest Economist to ever live (greater than Adam Smith = FACT)

Milton Friedman

I wanted to spend New Years Day writing about the most "influential", amazing and most importantly CORRECT, Milton Friedman. Milton Friedman was seen as a  macroeconomist, who wrote technical works on topics such as inflation, unemployment and consumer behaviour. He was also seen by many as an ideologist, a complete "freemarketeer" (my contribution to economics). But most of all he, was seen as the answer to all our economic problems. The only problem was, that only a small group of people believed that he had the answer, and so he was sadly ignored. (The Economist supported Friedmans' view on the free-market).
