Corbyn Wins Backing From Over 40 Economists

An ex-BoE adviser is among the signatories to a letter dismissing claims Jeremy Corbyn is on the extreme left of economic policy according to SKY News

Dozens of UK economists – including a former Bank of England adviser – have indicated they are publicly backing the policies of Labour leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn.

In a significant boost to Mr Corbyn’s campaign, more than 40 economists have reportedly added their signatures to a letter in the Observer dismissing claims the Islington North MP is “extreme”.

Instead, they argue that Mr Corbyn’s opposition to austerity is “actually mainstream economics”.
