Could Cost Us Billions
A Report Published today by the UK Kindness Movement suggest good manners
alone could boost the real economy
London, UK, 20th April 2012—Not only is Britain at risk of losing its
age-old reputation for kindness and civility but rudeness across the nation
could be costing us billions.
A report published today by the UK Kindness Movement warns that lack of consideration
for others in the community could be the cause of spiralling costs of mental
illness, a decrease in revenue from tourism and an increase in the cost of
policing anti-social behaviour.
The author of the report, Louise Burfitt-Dons says, `it is clear there’s
been a decline in standards of consideration over the past fifty years. The
fact it could also be costing us in hard revenue is worrying.’
Burfitt-Dons, who founded the UK Kindness Movement and is co-founder of Kindness
Day UK has been researching the subject of kindness in the community since
Recommendations for improvement include teaching likeability skills in schools,
more efficiency systems in place to counter the negative effects of the `hurried
society’ and more positive and helpful signs in public places.
