Do We Need More Public Sector Investment?

Richard Murphy is the brains behind peoples’ QE, though it’s debatable concerning how appropriate the term “brains” is. Britain needs more investment, whereas PQE is not befitting China because China has an unwanted amount of investment. I smell misunderstandings of issues. Well you wouldn’t think it, but Murphy is an accountant. So that as every clued up accountant understands, when there’s a rise popular for anything, that induces a proportion of relevant makers to get more!

Put another way, when applying to a bank or investment company for a loan to make an investment, there’s nothing that induces the lender to make the loan like the view of hoards of customers coming thru leading door. Thus the recommendation a general increase in demand will not lead to more investment is basic nonsense. That “more demand leads to more investment” point certainly pertains to the PRIVATE sector.

But it should also apply automatically to the general public sector, assuming those who do investment appraisal in the general public sector know very well what they’re doing. Do we need more open public sector investment? And where is the frustrating clear evidence that people need loads more open public sector investment? There’s plenty of debate over if the suggested £30bn HS2 rail task in the UK is worthwhile. As to streets, the traffic flows pretty openly on 90% of roads 90% of that time period in the united kingdom. Of course that’s false in hurry hours. But if you build so much road that traffic flows freely in hurry hours, then there’s over-capacity at other times.

As for the channel tunnel, the original investors have lost nearly all their money. One of the primary investment items in any country is housing. In the united kingdom there’s certainly a shortage of housing, but the good reasons for that shortage are complex and much disputed. One of the favorite explanations is local government refusal to permit building on agricultural land as a result of pressure placed on local governments by people residing in agricultural areas who don’t want plenty of new houses in their area.

Note: An up to date version of the next post are available at this link. Each month, the Treasury Department posts updated estimations of the foreign holdings of U.S Treasuries by country as of this link. It also posts estimations going back to March 2000 as of this hyperlink. The following graph shows the totals for all countries by the type of treasury security and the totals for the three countries with the largest holdings. The purple collection shows the grand total of most treasury securities kept by all international countries, private and public. As is seen, it’s been increasing steadily since early 2002 and has accelerated somewhat before year.

The yellow range shows those securities held by “official institutions”, described on page 7 of the Report on U.S. Official institutions consist mainly of national authorities and multinational organizations involved in the formulation of international monetary policy, but likewise incorporate national government-sponsored investment money and other national government organizations. Data on such institutions are collected separately because the motivations behind holdings of official institutions may differ from those of other investors.

More information on short-term and long-term debts securities are available on web page 7 of the Report on U.S. The other three lines show the holdings of the three countries with the largest holdings. The actual quantities and resources for both of the above mentioned graphs can be found at this link.
