“capped expenditure process” [...] “Some of the proposals could challenge fundamental expectations shared by NHS staff and the public about what the health service is there to provide. We can not do that without a full and proper debate”, said Saffron Cordery, the organisation’s director of policy and strategy.

Stock Market Capitalization-To-GDP Ratio 2nd Highest In History | Seeking Alpha
The combined market value of all U.S. stocks, as measured by the Federal Reserve, is now near the 2nd highest on record. At 125% of GDP as of October 2016, it was just below the level reached in early 2000, the peak of the Internet Bubble. If one considers the market's appreciation since October 2016, the ratio may have exceeded the 2000 level.

Britain’s economy is broken. We desperately need new ideas | Tom Kibasi | Opinion | The Guardian
If the country was economically bankrupt in 2010, it is intellectually bankrupt in 2017. On the eve of the general election, politicians of all parties have rarely been so devoid of progressive ideas [...] Yet in substance, May’s approach remains mere tinkering at the edges of economic policy. The Conservatives remain stubbornly allergic to – or ignorant of – Keynesian macroeconomics. [...] [and housing and real estate lending distorting the lending picture. houses are not productive! R&D, and firms are. and creating long-term jobs w real incomes to spend (not remortgaging your home bc of housing bubble]

'A grim reality': concern over longer waits for NHS operations | Society | The Guardian
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-northamptonshire-40124643 & http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-40122075 - The number of people in England being forced to wait that long has almost trebled in the past four years, from 45,054 in March 2013 to 126,188 in March this year – a 180% rise. Patients are, in theory, guaranteed to have a non-urgent procedure, such as a hernia repair, cataract removal or hip or knee replacement, within 18 weeks under the NHS constitution. Surgeons said delays of at least 26 weeks would lead to patients suffering for longer than they should, which could damage their quality of life and chances of recovering. [...] including for A&E and cancer care, amid rising demand, widespread staff shortages and an unprecedented financial squeeze.

The truth about the Conservative manifesto? No new funding for schools and hospitals and more austerity | The Independent
But now we know: she couldn’t give an answer because there was actually no extra spending that needed to be paid for. The Institute for Fiscal Studies has calculated that the £8bn of NHS spending is merely a continuation of the path for health spending set out in the 2015 Spending Review and implicitly assumed to be extended in the 2017 March Budget. The IFS thinks the same thing is happening in schools spending, although with the added mischief that the £4bn figure is in cash terms, so unadjusted for expected inflation. //&! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/nhs-children-mental-health-services-cuts-or-closure-third-downsizing-survey-staff-conservatives-a7749616.html - Third of NHS children's mental health services 'face cuts or closure' Between 2010 and 2015, spending on children’s mental health services fell by nearly £50m – more than six per cent in real terms //&! http://www.independent.co.uk/news/health/nhs-world-ranking-uk-healthcare-worse-ireland-spain-slovenia-30th-lancet-a7744131.html - NHS is 'worse than healthcare in Ireland, Spain and Slovenia' in new global ranking UK scores total of 84.6 out of 100, placing it on an equal footing with Cyprus, Qatar, Malta, Portugal and the Czech Republic

Tulips, Myths, and Cryptocurrencies – Stratechery by Ben Thompson
The problem, of course, is that while blockchain applications make sense in theory, the road to them becoming a reality is still a long one. That is why I suspect the better analogy for blockchain-based applications and their associated cryptocurrencies is not tulips but rather the Internet itself, specifically the 1990s. Marc Andreessen is fond of observing, most recently on this excellent podcast with Barry Ritholtz, that all of the dot-com failures turned out to be viable businesses: they were just 15 years too early (the most recent example: Chewy.com, the spiritual heir of famed dot-com bust Pets.com, acquired earlier this year for $3.35 billion).

As the aphorism goes, being early (or late) is no different than being wrong, and that’s true in a financial sense. As I noted above, I would not be surprised if the ongoing run-up in cryptocurrency prices proves to be, well, a bubble. However, bubbles of irrationality and bubbles of timing are fundamentally different: one is based on something real (the latter), and one is not. That is to say, one is a myth, and one is merely a fable — and myths can lift an entire species.
