What links the political and financial crises
The way that things just keep getting worse, an elite class who try every stop-gap measure possible to prevent decline but the slide continues, and a root cause of a widening gulf between those with responsibility and those that they should represent, are all similar factors between the financial and political crises. I argue that these factors are not just reminiscent; they are connected in this piece for LabourList. The solutions are fundamental rather than the incremental fare that we have been offered so far. Whether there is a pause or not, political leaders will have to act or face dire consequences. Nothing like a crisis to focus minds. Or not, it seems.
