Is it just be or has Cameron got things the wrong way round today in his announcement that the Tories would give tax breaks to businesses that take on someone who has been unemployed ?
Businesses are laying people of because of a lack of demand, and the best way to ensure that business picks up is to increase demand for goods. how will Cameron's policy deal with this ? Quite simply , it doesn't.
It does not even deal with the issue of people worrying about losing their jobs because there is no incentive for businesses to keep people on.
I don't doubt that in an economy on the up, Cameron's policy might make sense, but in the current climate it is the wrong medicine completely.
