Politics of the Recession

Andrew Gamble's talk on "Politics of the Recession" focusing on the impact on national and international politics, covers a number of scenarios, looking at whether the effects of this recession are different from previous recessions, whether it is marked by a shift in the international balance of power, what are the political conditions for recovery, and what is likely to be the political fall-out from fiscal retrenchment and sovereign debt.
