What are the rules?

In the UK - as elsewhere - the government is desperately trying to introduce measures to 'fix' the economy ... but this is new ground we are covering. Nobody knows what the rules are. We do know that it is difficult for any government to fix their own economy in isolation ... yet they have to be seen to be trying.

And for businesses, what happens to productivity when survival is all that matters?

The 'rule' here is that productivity always matters ... and businesses taking difficult decisions have to think through the unintended consequences of those decisions and how they impact on future productivity.

If you can, keep your nerve!
