Green shoots of recovery, anyone?

Oiling the wheels of productivity
The performance and efficiency of the world's national oil companies - i.e. those still wholly under government ownership - could be increased very dramatically by privatising them, new research finds.

NHS managers may well have to bite the bullet and accept a pay freeze in the coming year, but if it is executed in the right way and shown to benefit the NHS it may not demotivate staff.
