Vizek: "Very strong public sector, lot of informal economy. Croatia experienced slow growth before, so new normal not really new. But political willingness to reform very low."

Hello #BIWisdom tribe, and welcome to our weekly discussion.
This week on #BIWisdom I’m excited to discuss #skills for #data and #Analytics.
This is a favorite #BIWisdom topic of mine, because prior to my #Analytics journey I was a teacher in the UK. I’ve written about it a little on LinkedIn linkedin.com/pulse/positive…

1. An interesting thing about #services trade in the context of #Brexit is that we need to remember that services imports directly create jobs. Economists always like imports, but public debate focuses on jobs coming from exports. #Services are different. Let me explain why.
2. Under the GATS, when a foreign services company establishes a subsidiary in the UK and sells services to locals, that's an import of services for the UK under #Mode3. But to sell services to locals, the business needs to employ locals. So imports directly create jobs in the UK
3. Eurostat data shows that around 2.6 million service sector employees in the UK get their paychecks from foreign controlled companies. It's hard to get a break down of exactly how much of that is European, but it's far to assume that it's substantial.

I was born & raised in #Medellin Colombia, an amazing & vibrant city in the middle of the mountains.

Please do not mention #Narcos or #Escobar when you hear Medellin!

Medellin is much more than that #eternalspring #innovation #Entrepreneurship #mountains #coffee #greatpeople

Went to a great school in #medellin & at 17 started #medicine not because I wanted to be a clinician but because I liked the #science & my family and #mentors told me #medicine was broader and could open more doors for me #VoicesIWS #Thread☝️@IWS_Network

Good afternoon to #BIWisdom I hope everyone had an agreeable and productive week!
Today I want to start #BIWisdom with thinking about #Success with BI in different horizontal Business Functions.
In particular, we know from our #BIWisdom that #Success is fostered by sharing best practices, sometimes at events like @RealBIEvent 😉

Don't believe that Blukip Mayhem & Co realise just HOW far adrift they have become from public opinion NOW! Of course, they could put ANY deal? Big IF? to a #peoplesvote, and test the will of the people to which they love SO much to defer? Democracy? Do they really believe in it?
Hard to escape the view that 'so called' UK Democracy has been completely hijacked by Blukip Mayhem & Co. There's NO mandate to trash our economy in the way now daily unfolding. It's totally risible to suggest that we'll go global from the self-inflicted wreckage of what we had.
Triple hit from #Brexodus; deferred, reduced or cancelled #BusinessInvestment and collapsing consumer #Confidence look likely to impact UK #GDP when #Q2 stats are known. Will Blukip Mayhem & Co take any notice? Or just keep racking up yet more debt, as UK #TaxTake recedes!
