    Yes, he will "raise" iot by increasing inflation significantly and implementing practically impossible methods.

    Oh, I didn't look at who I was quoting, time for you to reject this are "right wing smear" or some crap like that because it disagrees with your view.
    At least you're focusing on his actual economic policies rather then on who he sat next to on the train 5 years ago.

    Nice.

    No, 40 University professors, all indoctrinated to believe in socialism as an economic model - hence why they don't work for a living or function in real society - all validated Corbyn's proposals.

    It seems like it comes as a surprise to you that University professors would approve Corbyn's plans? Universities are FULL of socialists. Look at the stats: https://www.timeshighereducation.co....019944.article If the University sector was the electorate, the Greens would have amassed 22% of the popular vote. The University sector is completely detached from any conceptualisation of reality.

    It's a bit like walking into a meeting of members of the National Socialist German Workers Party and asking for their perspective on Judaism.
    Whereas no economics professors have links to the financial services "industry"?

    University staff mostly satisfy neither of the following criterion:

    (a) They are stupendously rich, which many investments in banking and/or real estate;
    (b) They are stupendously stupid, and will believe everything Rupert Murdoch says and vote for whoever he tells them to.

    Small wonder they don't vote for David ****ing Puddingface.

    I suppose by "reality" you don't actually reality. You mean "economic reality", which has increasingly been exposed as a ludicrous ****pig of parasitic debt-foisting upon the weak.

    The Green party is not detached from reality, actual reality. You know, the real, literal, actual reality. They actually want to protect the things we really need (trees, biodiversity, etc.) whereas conservatives want to protect the people paying them. The conservatives want to steal money from the poor, and then eat it.

    What a very angry, hate-filled and bitter post. You really ought to get that chip off your shoulder.

    The green parties economic policies make Pol Pots economic reforms seem positively forward thinking.
    I like having the Green Party around. They're a great protest vote but they're bat **** crazy when it comes to policy decisions.

    Still since 1988, nobody has had the balls to ask him to pay taxes
    I think plateface is more appropriate

    Anger protects us. It stops us from getting screwed over. I will keep that chip where I damn well please.

    In any case, why bother replying to object to the "tone" of my post? What about the actual opinions etc.?

    Perhaps they could spend more time considering their economic policy.

    But it's the very fact that they *don't* seem to care about the economy which makes me want to vote for them.

    I like having the Tories around. The Tories are like the IMF, it is important to pay attention to what they say, so you know how to do the exact opposite.

    Is that with the hope of the opposite effect?

    That doesn't answer the question, that is a TL;DR.

    Um, well, ask for another article by him, he often criticises the IMF. You can google it.

    Jeremy Corbyn's opposition to austerity is actually mainstream economics, even backed by the conservative IMF. He aims to boost growth and prosperity. He voted against the shameful £12bn in cuts in the welfare bill.
    The notion that austerity is necessary for the economy, or even to reduce the deficit, is rejected by many, if not most, economists, including Nobel Prize winners Amartya Sen, Joseph Stiglitz and Paul Krugman.

    Will the mainstream media actually tell the public this? Probably not. Will they tell the public that the "growth" seen from the end of 2013 onwards only occurred because the government drastically reduced the pace of deficit reduction, hence why they missed their target? No.

    It's the Conservatives, spurred on by the ridiculous free-market economic hypotheses which led us to the global financial crisis, who aren't following mainstream economics.

    More than 40 leading economists, including a former adviser to the Bank of England, have made public their support for Jeremy Corbyn’s policies, dismissing claims that they are extreme, in a major boost to the leftwinger’s campaign to be leader.

    afaik corbyn hasnt published a detailed economic manifesto - so how can they support something that doesnt exist?

    they may support the idea of stop austerity, but then how does he balance the books , reduce debt, pay for increased spending ?
    where are his checked figures?
    the man is all rhetoric, he is not an economist

    I look forwards to the lower minimum wage and lesser investment in key public services, greater inefficiency, thus wasted money, in the others.

    55 academics have just written in the FT that Corbynomics is not mainstream and is damaging to the country.

    I hope the smugness of Corbyn supporters is neutralised by this. It seemed that you were convinced that economists and 'clever people' all know Corbyn is fantastic and that the rest of the country just needed to catch up.
