Philpott, John
November 2010
People Management;11/11/2010, p14
The author comments on the stance of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CPID) about the fiscal austerity measures of the government of Great Britain. He argues that cuts in public spending and higher taxes will affect jobs in the short period. He recalls his experience as a public commentator while he was in a session of the Parliament where some members criticized his job estimates. He believes that policymakers must attend to the data and analysis being presented by CPID to the house.
