Apparently digital piracy has destroyed 2.7m jobs in Europe. Lots of assumptions in the model they are using, so we must take it with a pinch of salt. The Â£200m each year the government is wasting on reorganisation is definitely destructive.
Final word: as the Mash has it: most people don‘t know what their job is anyway:
I work in an open plan office with lots of orange girls and sometimes I
go to meetings at a slightly larger office in Reading where they give
me good quality biscuits.
