Open mike is your post.

It’s open for discussing topics of interest, making announcements, general discussion, whatever you choose.

Comment on whatever takes your fancy.

The usual good behaviour rules apply (see the link to Policy in the banner).

Step right up to the mike…

    skills shortages?

    A journalisic term used lazily to mean more bums on academic institutional seats.

    Otherwise why don’t they specify which skills are suffering a shortage?

    I suppose if you have too many skilled workers competing for work then
    wages drop, so they might not want to force a glut.

    But then how do we know there isn’t already a glut and the present lower
    wages is already a consequence of over supply?

    What we seem to have a shortage of consumers who have money in their pocket.

    An income shortage.
