Lehman Brothers collapse: what we’ve learned

1 Mins

We are in the worst recession since the Wall Street Crash. Unemployment will shoot past three million. The national debt will soar to levels not seen since the Second World War. The Bank of England is printing a billion pounds a day to keep the government afloat. And who is going to rescue the nation from this maelstrom?

Entrepreneurs.

While large corporations downsize and retrench, entrepreneurs are hiring, investing, innovating and creating. They are the saviours of our nation.

To help our valiant tycoons drag Britain out of the economic gutter, Real Business presents a ten-point manifesto: Saving Britain’s Future. Our mission is to galvanise the government into giving entrepreneurs the tools they need to build a productive economy now and for the future.

To compile it we asked Real Business readers to contribute. We got a superb response, so thank you for all your suggestions. The resulting manifesto is the distillation of all that wisdom.

Supporting entrepreneurs and small business is the most prudent investment the UK can make. And we demand action.

Read our manifesto here.
