As it is, I am not inundated with glimmering employment gems, thus I will begin my list that comprises my list 'How to remain positive in your job search.'
From May 2014, third party groups will be gagged a year before general elections. By law, they will not be able to hold politicians to account or critique government policy. Community groups and charities will no longer be free to protest about local issues- opposing changes to NHS services, voicing concern about environmental issues and alerting the public to 21st Century Britain's growing reliance on food banks will all be banned.
The last week has brought news of dangerously low inflation in Germany, and we learnt that German retail sales had plunged in September, Eurozone unemployment edged up by 0.2% to 12.2%, and the Consumer Price Index across the Eurozone is estimated to have risen only 0.7% in the last year.
In short, if economic experts actually knew what they were talking about, some of them might agree with each other. As they don't, let's assume they don't.
Businesses are facing their own version of this crisis - a cost of doing business crisis. We have now found out that, because of inflation, business rates are going to increase by an average of £430 from next April, at a total cost to businesses of £700m. This is happening year after year - they have already gone up by £1,500 on average under David Cameron.
Four in 10 people have told us they can't reduce energy use any further as they have already cut down as much as they can. In addition, three in 10 say they don't know how they will heat their homes this winter. Now, Which? has calculated that up to £1.8bn per year could be shaved off consumer costs.
The banks have admitted guilt and they are paying us back for all the dodgy deals they got into! Well, not really. Banks are, in effect, 'fessing up to having behaved fraudulently or criminally. However what 'settling' means is actually 'paying regulators to shut up and stop asking difficult questions'.
The 9th World Islamic Economic Forum (WIEF), held for the first time outside of the Muslim World, is finally here. The Mozlumms [sic] have arrived for what in many ways seems like a friendly cricket test match.
What we need is relatively simple: businesses to recognise that those under 25 could become a talent pool that will help them grow but they have an active role to play in helping them understand and then develop the skills that are needed. It could start with offering work experience, a traineeship or apprenticeship. What's important is realising this interaction will inspire a young person about what their future could hold and directly influence their success. Especially for the one in six who grow up in families where neither parent is employed.
Last week's GDP figures are undoubtedly good in that there is a return to overall growth. The problem is that once you examine the data there is little to demonstrate that we have moved away from reliance on precisely the sectors and behaviour that got us into the financial mess in the first place.
It is causing emotional and psychological turmoil among people who have little other than their communities and social networks to rely on.
I don't doubt that across the UK this winter, austerity measures and rising fuel costs will put many pensioners with limited means in a horribly difficult position. However, at the same time I don't doubt that the same difficult decision will be faced by many younger adults, and children too.
Those who argue that QE in any form is a good idea are kidding themselves. And they are not just "discredited austerians" or "inflation hawks". There is not a single historical precedent of money-printing having ended well. Not one. It always ends in economic ruin. Always.
We have had a massive £375billion of quantative easing so far, which may have saved the financial sector but has done very little for the rest of us. That amounts to around £6,000 per man, woman and child in the UK. So why not electronically add this to the current accounts of every member of the public? Why not give the QE money directly to ordinary people to spend, save or pay off their debts?
Not only are people travelling more, they are spending a little more too. Globally, the average price that travellers paid per night for hotel rooms rose by two per cent, approaching levels not seen since before the economic crisis in 2008/9.
You might say that during this long stretch of monetary history our freedoms and choice were restricted as we laboured away under state-imposed money systems. However, since 1990 there have been huge changes taking place.
