As the Prime Minister sets out to sell the 2011 Budget, Speakers Corner’s best economic speakers take to the screen, the press and the airwaves to analyze Britain’s monetary future. Anthony Hiltontells Evening Standard readers that “it's time to stop bashing bankers” whilst James Naughtie and Nick Robinson quizzes the Chancellor on Radio 4.
Chancellor George Osborne has said that measures like those outlined in yesterday's Budget, aim to "create the stability and now give the entrepreneurial boost to get us into the prosperity we all want to see".
Interviewed by Today presenter James Naughtie, Mr Osborne said that people should not just judge the Budget by the newspaper headlines, "judge it by the reaction of business organisations," adding that it "has got companies moving to the UK, like WPP, rather than leaving the UK".
BBC's business editor Robert Peston analyses the budget mission statements on the BBC website and provides thoughtful insight into a quagmire of information.
Other corporate speakers such as Stephanie Flanders and Charles Kennedy specialise in empowering and invigorating businesses during current poor trading conditions and are available to inspire, motivate and educate corporate events.
The prime minister and his deputy insist that the coalition has the policies to build private sector growth and pull the economy out of the doldrums.
They will announce the first of a new wave of 21 enterprise zones – a revival of former Thatcherite policy that will offer companies tax breaks and lighter planning restrictions.
