  • The real price of capitalism - Shropshire Business Today
    private equity firm Langholm Capital in 2008 for 40m Langholms have spent the last five years driving up revenue as the company pushes into foreign markets Turnover has rocketed past 40m overseas earnings have soared by more than 100 per cent and the company now trades in more than 30 countries All well and good and easy to see why it might now attract considerable interest even at the eye watering price Langholms are asking The talk is that several overseas companies could be interested in the deal keen to cash in one the brand s growing profile in emerging markets such as China And this is where the problems could start While an overseas buyout might be good for the company opening up new markets and bringing with it the potential for cheaper labour it could be far less advantageous for the local community Take the case of the buyout of Cadbury by US giant Kraft as an example Despite pledges by the company that British jobs were safe 200 staff at three plants including the Marlbrook operation just down the road from Tyrrells lost their posts in a global reorganisation This is the harsh truth of the free market in a global economy Workers are not just competing with the next town county or country for their jobs but with the entire globe And we in the West are very quickly pricing ourselves out of that competition This of course is not an argument for protectionism or a Little England mentality We need UK companies to be thriving across the world developing new markets and bringing fresh revenue in the country It is part of the lifeblood of our economy And we need that relationship to be a two way affair with the rest of the world happy

  • Time to row our own course? - Shropshire Business Today
    fundamental lesson of personal finance You cannot spend what you do not have A similar day of reckoning is now looming for the Government over our ongoing membership of the EU And though the sums of cash being bandied about are slightly higher than in my love struck case the principle is much the same Can we really afford to stay in the EU during such a savage economic downturn Some economists reckon that Britain has pumped around 228 billion into Europe since 1979 and got just 143 billion back in benefits Supporters say the sums are much more complex than this and that up to three million UK jobs depend on our continuing membership of the Union They say there is no way Britain would be allowed to leave the club amicably and that if we wanted to continue to trade with Europe after pulling out of the EU we would be left following rules we had no say in making More than half of this country s total trade in goods and services some 400billion is with the EU and we would become a political irrelevance once we had quit they claim Those urging a referendum say this is rubbish and that we would simply continue to trade with Europe as an independent partner and be free to forge trade alliances with other parts of the world More importantly still they argue we would regain our sovereignty and establish control over our own borders There is of course merit on all sides of the argument What there is not is the cash in the bank to continue with the status quo while the politicians conduct their own private squabble This is more than a matter to be discussed at the dinner parties of the political elite It is
