Then you need to study the Hegelian Dialectic. Science shows that all is in a state of flux.

Never again. 

 

I honestly couldn't imagine a more embarrassing, and stupid, recommendation. 

 

At least I have a better understanding of why you can't make a coherent argument.

I would laugh my head off if this turned out to be the main cause.

 

Government interference in markets leading to inefficiencies?!

 

Fancy that.

It’s definitely a factor.  But I’m not sure its as significant as the pandemic/brexit, or why it would be a cause for laughter.

In any event it simply goes to show that employers need to provide better working conditions and safeguards instead of freelancing them - a practice adopted in several other services with the result employers get off the hook. If employers complain about their profit margins being too low then we could lower the rate of interest. However, as that rate is quite low, then any further lowering would likely mean that banks would in effect have to pay people to borrow money! Now that really would be cause for laughter.
