Two-thirds of firms perceive employment regulation to be the biggest threat to labour market competitiveness, says the CBI. What? Even though just about everyone has more of it than we do, including many of the most competitive economies? It goes … Continue reading
“How reliable are the social sciences?” asks Notre Dame University’s Gary Gutting. Not very. The case for a negative answer lies in the predictive power of the core natural sciences compared with even the most highly developed social sciences. Social … Continue reading
I can’t remember an employment law story causing this much of a row since the 1980s. Whatever else you might say about Adrian Beecroft, at least he’s got us discussing the subject and, as Michael says, he’s inspired some great … Continue reading
