British Economy May Be Left Paralyzed Due to Soaring Mental Disorders

Samizdat – 10.11.2022

The number of British citizens neither working nor looking for a job has grown dramatically since the beginning of the pandemic. Much of this can be attributed to mental health issues, which could impede the UK’s economic growth, economists warn.

According to research carried out by a UK media outlet, the number of economically inactive people in Britain rose by 537,500 between June 2019 and June 2022. About 450,000 of these cases were connected to mental health issues. The number of economically inactive people in the UK has skyrocketed to almost nine million. Britons are plagued by depression and anxiety disorders, the research shows.

This trend will have a negative impact on the British economy, the analysts warn. For instance, Deloitte’s research unit states that mental disorders of employees affect the productivity and turnover of companies. According to their report, annual costs associated with poor mental health have increased by 25% since the outbreak of COVID-19.

The epidemic of mental disorders will affect the British economy globally, economists claim.

Many experts claim the “rise in economic inactivity will hold UK growth back.” Economically inactive people do not contribute to public finances. Furthermore, the disability benefits bill in the UK has already reached £14.7 billion.

Mental disorders are among a number of conditions that may qualify for disability benefits. Depression and anxiety disorders are on the list, but in general any mental condition qualifies if it prevents a person from gaining or maintaining employment.

  1. Mental disorders on the part of whom? The people, or the politicians who are leading the country(ies) off the Cliffs of Dover?

  2. Since when unemployment (which is due to economic and political crisis) became a mental health issue!? I think that the only people that got out of their minds in Britain are its politicians.

  3. I must admit that (here in Australia, where I live right on a State border, and was not allowed (for 12 months) to travel 150 metres to the next door State, I found it incredibly frustrating, and multi thousands of Australians had the same problem.
    And with the benefit of hindsight, we now realise what a fraud Covid 19 was. (Having to stand about 6 feet behind people in a Shopping checkout, breathing the same air is/was utterly ridiculous (AND, the masks provide NO protection whatsoever.)

    And now that they can’t scare us with Covid anymore, they have a range of “Pandemics” lined up and ready to scare us with again.
    I’m not buying their CRAP any more.

  4. First, they create these problems by locking down the economy and forcing folks to stay home in a NON-pandemic. Then they pay these people more than they make by working, to stay home. Then they scratch their heads wondering why there are so many folks who don’t want to work. Can someone explain how anybody can still be so stupid as to not understand this?? Give me a break!!

    • Politicians worldwide, when they get a taste of power, immediately forget who they represent, and then follow the sniff of MONEY, and are Bought, by the “1%”, and You and Me, are forgotten. Politicians, generally, are despicable Scumbags.
