‘Worker shortage biggest economic issue’

Speaking at a symposium on the credit crisis at Nijenrode University, Van Duijn said the economy was on the verge of a wages spiral which will boost inflation.
In a year’s time, no one will talk about the banking crisis brought on by the US mortgage market, Van Duijn, former head of investment house Robeco, told the meeting.
