Business leaders say public sector cuts are the way to reduce deficits

first_img whatsapp Show Comments ▼ KCS-content THE Conservative party conference starts on Sunday and George Osborne may take some comfort from a new KPMG report that supports the case for austerity, though he may find it too radical in other ways. Meeting the Deficit Challenge is a comprehensive analysis of the historical evidence on deficit reduction. It concludes that decisive, front-loaded public spending cuts are the best answer to a ballooning deficit. KPMG cites Alberto Alesina and Silvio Ardagna’s 2010 NBER working paper and argues that spending cuts are not only more benign in their effects on growth than tax rises, but expansionary, improving confidence and bringing strong positive effects on private investment.Conservatives with pet budget priorities may not be consoled, however. Tuesday’s leaked letter by Liam Fox to David Cameron protested against cuts to the armed forces. But a KPMG survey of senior corporate decision makers released alongside their report found that 75 per cent of those surveyed in the UK supported defence cuts to help reduce the deficit, the third highest level of support for such cuts in the world, well above the global average of just 47 per cent.In Ireland, where the national deficit has grown even worse with yesterday’s announcement of the Anglo Irish bailout bill, KPMG found that the business community is eager for action. Not only did they show the world’s highest percentage of support for welfare and defence cuts to reduce the deficit – 83 per cent backed each – but there was a remarkable 100 per cent consensus that Ireland’s public sector pay bill must be slashed.Perhaps most refreshing of all is KPMG’s look to the medium term, which suggests “a radical re-engineering of government” to reduce costs. The report recommends “exploring new opportunities in areas like infrastructure privatization”. Paul Kirby of KPMG in the UK argues “private involvement may need to go deeper into the heart of government”, including schools. If so, today’s austerity could be just the start of far larger changes in our relationship with the state. by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksYou May LikeMisterStoryWoman Files For Divorce After Seeing This Photo – Can You See Why?MisterStoryTotal PastThe Ingenious Reason There Are No Mosquitoes At Disney WorldTotal PastNoteabley25 Funny Notes Written By StrangersNoteableyMoneyPailShe Was A Star, Now She Works In ScottsdaleMoneyPailSerendipity TimesInside Coco Chanel’s Eerily Abandoned Mansion Frozen In TimeSerendipity TimesBrake For ItThe Most Worthless Cars Ever MadeBrake For ItBetterBe20 Stunning Female AthletesBetterBemoneycougar.comThis Proves The Osmonds Weren’t So Innocentmoneycougar.comPeople TodayNewborn’s Strange Behavior Troubles Mom, 40 Years Later She Finds The Reason Behind ItPeople Today whatsapp Thursday 30 September 2010 10:59 pm Share Business leaders say public sector cuts are the way to reduce deficits Tags: NULLlast_img read more

They paved the way for health staff to get access to the community. They were strong voices for prevention and against stigma. They brought back a humanity to the clinical and dehumanising process for safe burials. In the later stages of the epidemic, faith leaders were permitted to stand and pray with families at a safe distance, while the burial teams, in protective body suits and masks, buried the deceased.“Faith leaders used the Scriptures to think about how you treat people as children of God, with faith and dignity,” remarked Geoff Daintree, Church Advocacy Advisor at Christian Aid, a co-sponsor of the report.Participation of faith leadersAt the Anglican Alliance meeting, participants noted the growing awareness of the need for faith communities to be involved in humanitarian response as true partners not just instrumentalised as communication channels or service deliverers. Through dialogue, faith leaders can become central in promoting positive change and planning for recovery.The Ebola tragedy was a very powerful wake-up for the UN agencies on the need to engage faith leaders, said the Revd Canon Flora Winfield, Anglican Communion Representative to the United Nations institutions in Geneva.The Anglican Alliance will continue to work together with the Communion’s UN representation to advocate for the inclusion of faith leaders in emergency response and recovery planning. The World Humanitarian Summit in May 2016 will be a key platform.Transforming fear into hopeThe faith leaders in countries affected by Ebola saw that they needed to engage in dialogue and reach out across “tribe, mission and religion” to create awareness of the issues, Bishop Emmanuel noted. “We [recognised that we] are challenged to work together, we should be united in reaching out and finding a way to get rid of the disease.”Involving all faith and traditional leaders was crucial. “[In Muslim-majority areas] it was very important to have the imam come so that people did not think we were coming to convert them,” the Rt Revd Jaques Boston, Bishop of Guinea and Guinea Bissau, commented.This included civil authorities, Bishop Emmanuel added. “[We saw we needed to] go beyond [our usual partnerships] so that we could share what we have and get them involved in suppressing the spread of Ebola.”“Medicine [men], those coming from church and mosque, politicians . . . we were able to strategise [together] and have a white paper that helped us,” said the Rt Revd Thomas Wilson, Bishop of Freetown.Echoing the premise of World Vision’s Channels of Hope initiative, Bishop Emmanuel said it had been crucial to challenge the dominant narrative of fear with Scripture-based messages of hope in order to engage people.“We need to give people hope at a time like this,” agreed Bishop Thomas, and highlighted the need for perseverance in this endeavour.“To change [mentality] it is not just one Sunday preaching or one pastor or imam, it is real engagement,” he said, adding that often lay people such as catechists were instrumental in helping pastors to overcome fear with messages of hope.Bishop Emmanuel recommended that the churches look at integrating how they are handling the response, talking about the issues and finding solutions within their normal programmes and ways of working.Bishop Jacques urged churches to take very practical steps to prepare for possible crises by establishing emergency committees in every diocese, setting up regular training courses in health care and social support, and budgeting for disaster response so that there would be a financial reserve in the diocese upon which to draw immediately if needed.Faith leaders also should emphasise that each person in the church has gifts to bring in such a situation. “Doctors, teachers – use the skills of everyone in the church,” said the Bishop of Bo.The Church must take the lead in times like the Ebola crisis rather than waiting to be drawn into the response, Bishop Thomas noted. “Start small but do something.”Janice Proud said the Alliance would continue to facilitate the mapping of responses to crises such as Ebola to determine the involvement of churches, agencies and link dioceses. This was particularly important in multi-country disasters like Ebola in order to bridge any gaps and avoid duplication, she added.The Anglican dioceses in Sierra Leone, Guinea and Liberia also had support from others in the Anglican family of churches and agencies, including diocesan companion links, while people all over the Communion joined in prayer.The experience of the West African churches in responding to Ebola was very important for the Communion, said Anglican Alliance Co-Executive Director, the Revd Rachel Carnegie.“The Alliance wants to explore how leaders in other places can tap into this learning for challenges in their own contexts, especially with disease epidemics,” Rachel said.After the meeting, the three West African bishops travelled to the Church of England’s General Synod where they spoke powerfully of their experiences at a seminar hosted by the United Society.Related resourcesClick here for more information about the Anglican Communion response to EbolaClick here for Keeping the Faith”, a report on faith response to Ebola, commissioned by Christian Aid, Tearfund, CAFOD and Islamic Relief (pdf)Click here for more information about World Vision’s “Channels of Hope” (pdf)Click here for the World Health Organisation’s latest news update on Ebola in Liberia (14 January) Featured Jobs & Calls Rector Bath, NC Episcopal Migration Ministries’ Virtual Prayer Vigil for World Refugee Day Facebook Live Prayer Vigil June 20 @ 7 p.m. ET Priest Associate or Director of Adult Ministries Greenville, SC last_img read more

Reporters Without Borders launches online petition for release of South Korean photographer Jae-Hyun Seok detained one year ago for coverage of North Korea refugees

He was sentenced to two years in jail for “trafficking in human beings”.The international press freedom organisation plans to present the petition calling for the journalist’s release and dropping of all charges to the Chinese embassy in France during Chinese president Hu Jintao’s official visit to Paris on 27-28 January. Find the petition on www.rsf.org.Seok was arrested on 18 January 2003 while covering an attempt to help North Korean refugees reach South Korea and Japan by boat. China signed an agreement with Pyongyang under which it undertook to repatriate any North Korean refugees.The photographer was sentenced to two years in prison for “people trafficking” by the Yantai court in Shandong province (opposite the Korean peninsula) on 22 May 2003. The sentence was later confirmed on appeal.Reporters Without Borders regrets that the South Korean government has not intervened more strongly on his behalf. “South Korea should use every diplomatic and political means to obtain the release of its citizen, who was only exercising his right to inform the public,” said Robert Ménard, secretary general of the international press freedom organisation.”It should be remembered that his arrest and sentence on false accusations was intended to punish an independent journalist and to discourage the international press from investigations about North Korean refugees in China,” he added.Seok, who works for The New York Times and the South Korean magazine Geo, is held in Yantai prison.
