Jersey drops ever lower into the black hole

Posted on

As the Jersey Evening Post reports:

FINANCE industry profits halved last year to their lowest level since records began, according to official figures released today.

The Island’s biggest industry saw profits fall from more than £1.5 billion in 2008 to £809 million last year. The profit per employee dropped from £123,000 in 2008 to £68,000 in 2009 – also a record low.

What can I say apart from “I told you so”?

Actually, quite a lot. I will be posting on Jersey’s plans on how it is going to get out of its black hole soon.
