London has been dubbed the world’s “talent capital”. The accolade has been awarded by business advisers Deloitte after a survey of 22 high-value sectors ranging from banking to telecoms and digital media.
The results put London comfortably in the lead, with 1.5m people apparently employed in the “high skill” sectors, compared with 1.2m in New York, 784,000 in Los Angeles, and 630,000 in Hong Kong.
Deloitte researchers delved into official employment data in the cities to arrive at the conclusion that London employed the most people in 12 of the sectors, such as banking, legal services and digital media, while New York was ahead of the field in just seven.
The amusement comes from the fact that various leftoids keep telling us that we must build a high wage, high skill economy. But they absolutely hate London which is a high wage high skill economy.
Sorta time to make up your minds about what you actually want, eh?
