DOOM TO BOOM? : UPDATE
We’re scouring the media for useful intelligence on ‘the bounce back’.
Although there’s not a lot of relevant information, there is a re-assuring undercurrent. Money will be injected into economies – and a lot of it. There seems to be zero conversation about trickle-down economics and almost universal acceptance that increasing national debt massively is a necessary evil.
There is even talk of mechanisms (Bancor / SDRs) to ease liquidity globally. So, money will flow. The question is where, and specifically, in the UK.
The Construction Leadership Council (CLC) sees the restart of major infrastructure projects as crucial to kickstarting the wider economy with multiple knock-on benefits for society.
Ann Bentley, global board director of the consultant Rider Levett Bucknall, told a webinar hosted by the Building Engineering Services Association (BESA) that a lot of smaller projects could also get up and running very quickly, and would play an important part in revitalising the economy.
