“The UK’s biggest export is its pessimism…”

Gerard Lyons in The Telegraph today, on how “Britain can learn from London’s optimism”

The UK’s biggest export is its pessimism. There seems to be a fear that someone, somewhere else will do it better; that our best days are behind us and that we are somehow not strong enough to confront the future in a changing global economy. This is often central to how we approach economic issues.

It needs to change because it is just not true.”
