    Default More Engineering Jobs Go

    This time it is East Belfast. The old technologies are no longer viable. It will take alot of McDonalds and/or tourist guides to make up for the sustained loss of engineering jobs.

    The economic underpinning of the north is not capable to shore up its chronic lack of foreign investment as it is competing with the Republic which is far better geared for foreign companies. The link with Britain is costingjobs. Time to break the shackles and join with the Republic if you want a future worth living.

    For unionism this is as good as it gets, for nationalism this is the worse it can be.

    The continuing trend in the republic is down. As evidenced in the Live Register ublished by the CSO just recently.

    http://www.cso.ie/en/media/csoie/rel...eg_oct2012.pdf

    a trend that IBEC also agrees with. to quote their report

    BEC senior economist Reetta Suonperä said: "Tackling unemployment is the key challenge facing Government, and this needs to be reflected in the measures taken in Budget 2013. The most damaging thing Government could do would be to add to the cost of employment. If employment costs rise companies will be much less likely to take on new staff. The private sector is the engine of the economy and it is vital that the Government does not undermine its ability to drive growth and create jobs.


    "Overall, 2012 is likely to be the last year of falling employment as the impact of cuts to public sector employment recedes and the rate of decline in the domestic economy slows. Next year should see a stabilisation, with a very marginal increase in employment. However, any recovery is predicated on the Government not adding to the cost of employment."
    The Republic has turned the corner. However the north, having been buffered to a certain extent, is still on the downward trend and it is not likely to see that bottom for some time.

    I see from your links that the "new" jobs are to be created in retail. As repeated ad infinitum retail parks do not an economy make. I ask you how many of these jobs are actually "new". How many are due to displacement/ and how many are transient?

    This is not a development to crow about.

    In the Republic manufacturing output growth accelerated to four-month high in October amid stronger rises in both output and new orders. Job creation was also recorded again during the month. Here manufacturing is declining.

    And that is the problem. If you do not value add or just simply make stuff to sell you re in trouble.

    The north situation is approaching dire. The link to Britain is not helping as seen from my previous post. In fact it is an albatross.

    some corner
    Mr Kenny said that the bank debt issue comprised the recapitalisation of Irish banks which had already taken place, and the Anglo promissory notes.
    He said he hoped that both elements required that the level of debt, which he described as a crushing burden, had to be "re-engineered".
    The Taoiseach added that Ireland had received "a great deal of support" from the IMF, the ECB, the European Commission and political leaders.
    "I hope that being serious ourselves, and proving that we're serious as we manage to move towards an exit of this bailout, that assistance will give us extra help."
    Mr Kenny was speaking at the Konrad Adenauer foundation, a German think tank, ahead of the summit of EU leaders in Brussels.
    Taoiseach: 'No deal on bank debt by end of year' - RTÉ News

    anyway 'ulster's' soooo 'doomed' the blog hasn't had a comment in two years...

    Considering the worldwide reputation the Orange Order generated over drumcree, the opening of an envelope in Portadown is something to crow about.
