As the summer months, the news from the Treasury seems upbeat. Growth is back. Economic forecasts are being revised upwards. The mood has switched from gloom to boom. 

In After Osbrown: Mending Monetary Policy, Douglas Carswell MPfor Clacton, who previously worked in fund management, warns all is not what it seems. The warning signs are already there: this may yet prove to be another credit-induced recovery. The UK is increasingly dependent on consumer spending and mortgage debt. Savings and investment are down. The UK’s current account deficit is widening.

Energy costs are now centre-stage in the policy debate at Westminster as both government and opposition promise to tackle rising costs. But if energy is to be affordable in the longer term, a secure supply of energy is needed. So too is a variety of sources. For that, says Politeia’s Nuclear Options: Powering the Future, nuclear will be needed.

Latin in the new curriculum and GCSE is in danger of being the Cinderella of foreign languages. So far the official remit threatens two penalties. Secondary schools may not offer Latin as an option for the languages National Curriculum of 11-14 year olds (although primaries can). And, so far, the proposals for GCSE Latin do not include any specification to allow translation from English into Latin as an examinable option.

To the authors of Politeia’s new study, Latin for Language Lovers: Ancient Languages, the New Curriculum and GCSE, these omissions should be rectified when it comes to the final framework.

The Coalition’s welfare reforms aim to ensure that working people earn more than those on benefit and that unemployed people can find and keep a job. These are widely welcomed. But, says Frank Field MP, the Labour Member of Parliament for Birkenhead, more radical change is needed if the system is to be effective, affordable and also fair.

In Working Welfare: Contributory Benefits, the Moral Economy and the New Politics, Mr Field, a former minister for Welfare Reform and Chairman of Parliament’s Social Security Select Committee, says if welfare is to work, thecontributory insurance principle must be restored to the National Insurance System. Contributors and tax payers should own their individual ‘pots’ and new mutual societies should run the system on their behalf.
