U.K. Politicians Turn to Google for Economic Advice

U.K

clickz_ukandeu.gifU.K. Conservative party leader, David Cameron, has recruited Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, to help reinvigorate Britain’s ailing economy.

Cameron today announced the formation of an Economic Recovery Committee, of which Schmidt will be a member, to help formulate policy proposals “for the long term reconstruction of Britain’s economy.”

The committee will meet fortnightly, but given that the majority of its members are based in London, or at least the U.K., it’s difficult to see exactly how much input Schmidt is likely to offer. Alongside the Google CEO, other members include Shadow Cabinet ministers Ken Clarke, Oliver Letwin, and William Hague, and various individuals from the U.K. business and finance sectors.
