The recession is a crisis of politics

11 02 2009

 One way of understanding the recession is to see it as economics catching up with politics. I mean this in the sense that, just as politics and political leadership have been in decline for many years, now business leaders, bankers and  economists have all been revealed along with politicians as lacking any real grasp of what is happening and what can be done to resolve it.

The latest part of my white paper on the UK economy after the recession looks at the weak and narrow political responses to the recession and how these are feeding public apathy.
