Economics journalist Stuart Simpson heads a frank on the sofa discussion on the economy, recession and who is responsible. Rather than the easy fat cat targets, Stuart points the finger at politicians, their failure to lead and managerial politics. He suggests that the South – North transfer of wealth which has financed Western debt is indicative of politician’s failure to allocate funds and productively invest in wealth creation for us all to benefit. Discussants show that engagement with the problems and solutions is perfectly possible, recessions, after all, are manmade.
