took credible plan of deficit reduction everything else would perk up there'd be so much confidence that the economy would start growing again but that was wrong because it's real factors not just psychological factors psychological factors are very important but it's the real factors the real market that is available to business man that caused them to want to increase. their business and the government was shrinking the market by its policy so it could talk up the economy all it wanted but the policies were pointing in a different direction austerity we now know hits the poor significantly harder than it is the rich presumably that means that during this recession the gap between the rich in the poor will why didn't even fire yeah that's that's already happening a real real incomes have been going down because prices have been going up a bit and of course welfare benefits are being slashed. a lot of
10:31 am
a lot there are lots of cuts in the public services and the rich are better able to insulate themselves against some of these effects for example house prices in london haven't gone down at all especially in the wealthy areas and in fact they may be going up a bit so the world of the wealthy has been well maintained but people who have relied on incomes from wages have been hit and of course there has been since the beginning of the. recession a very big rise in unemployment even more significant perhaps a very big rise in part time employment is happening jay graphically as well where rich regions get richer and poorer regions get poorer do you see a strategy by the governments in which areas that do economically well will apparently be rewarded while areas that do economically badly will be left to kind of fan. to generate what's the economic justification that well i think the
10:32 am
government wants to back winners. and. and it believes that winners come about through self. through through act the private private initiative sensually and so it wants to back back strong and hope that that will encourage the weak but of course this gap between the regions has been longstanding and recently most of the world that's been generated in the last ten twenty years has been in southern england and so the gap between the north and the south which had been actually getting less in the mid medias of the century has last century started to grow again and economists seem to almost universally to reject austerity and embrace advocate borrowing and spending instead why isn't the government doing
10:33 am
that well i don't think you're right i don't think the majority of economists do i mean the majority of economists say that the government is right to in its in its budget a budget deficit in its deficit reduction programs but it needs to do something else but what they don't explain is how doing something else can be made consistent with a reduction in government borrowing. you know government produces borrowing they say must reduce its borrowing then it's hard to know how it's going to do something else because unless it raises taxes for example that may be an alternative but very few people are advocating that taxes should go up so they're in this sort of halfway position a more or less there's no alternative to a stereotype but a stair it isn't a growth policy therefore the government should do something else but when it when . you actually asked them
10:34 am
a what should it do they get all vague. i think they should cancel a lot of the a stereotype obviously i think they should cancel the cuts in capital spending particularly and because of that that those schemes were ready to run when the kurdish and took office and they have been put into cold storage they could be this is buildings building schools building building houses hospitals all these projects that were canceled because the government was cutting down its spending i think should be uncancel that i think they should be revived so you're saying you've got to speculate to accumulate in a way not speculate spend you've got to spend because you see at the moment they're not meeting their deficit reduction targets they're not reducing the national debt in fact it's going up the whole time. and it and it's going up because the economy is going down the economy is what provides the government with its income and if
10:35 am
the economy is shrinking the income of the government shrinks of the same type and therefore the deficit rises and something like that has been going on so the policy can't even succeed in its own terms one of your colleagues an economist called james kean has suggested a scheme that he calls quantities if easing for the public saying that the debt that private individuals have needs to be reduced under the scheme he says that cash would be issued to individuals and those with debt would have to use it to pay that debt down and those without it would have a cash injection and it sounds like a great scheme and do you think it would work well i've suggested this as well in an article in the new statesman last week yeah that's fine i mean if you put money in that into the hands of the people. and make sure they as you say spend it in one way or another. then i think that gives a boost to the economy because. they could even increase their spending and
10:36 am
therefore set up a demand for shoes and clothes and food and all the things that people spend money on and so that'll be good for business that's i think that's a good idea actually suggested that the government give every household one hundred pound christmas present time limited so they need to do something with it can't just put it under the bed would that kind of policy be popular people were constantly hearing that there is no money now i think it would be popular i think everyone enjoys getting christmas presents and people really expect them from the government we've seen a europe wide backlash against austerity what do you think prime minister david cameron's chances are of being reelected if he continues if this territory continues if there's no change of policy if the measures that are now being proposed small or is ineffective as one thinks they may be then i think his chances of winning the next election
10:37 am
a very very small. because i think that there won't be a recovery his best chance of winning an election in two years' time is if there are proper green shoots of recovery and people can see them and they feel they're feeling better about the economy they're feeling better about their prospects they're feeling better about getting jobs and feeling better about getting more income then i think he'll benefit from that and have a good chance of winning but i don't think anything like that is going to happen under present policy so i think their chances of losing must be very high it's a keynesian idea that capitalism is a way towards working less and having enough is the current economic crisis is a result of that so it's time that we've fallen off the rails well that was a very long run i mean that was a long run idea that keynes had that in the end a successful capitalism should enable people to work less. and
10:38 am
and enjoy life more and he thought hours of work over time would shrink as we got richer but that assume that we wouldn't fall into these holes that you know that progress would be steady and you wouldn't have any more slumps but we're in we're in a slump we had the big collapse and at this point the priority is to get as many people back to work as possible and get as much production as you can because that full speed things along speed the road to utopia. so i think you mustn't confuse the short what needs to be done in the short run an hour long run prospects one of the things that the railed keynes's theory is this consumerism that we've all fallen to the spell of where we have to work more to buy more to have more are you worried that more crises will follow because of the way we work and because of
10:39 am
what we're working for it's a very good question i think we are consumption mad society and in order to go on consuming we have to go on earning money by working and working harder than most people want to and getting into debt and then the whole machine is driven by advertising and that does create a problem it means that as technology reduces the number of jobs and yet we all under this impulsion to consume more and what how do we see things developing what should happen is that on the whole we should give up growth as the top priority. and make sure we have enough work sharing so that people can get work but not most people working forty or forty five or fifty hours a week and then another fifteen or twenty percent not working at all or only working very. part time we need to sort of distribute work better among among
10:40 am
among people who want to work and also make sure there's more leisure so people can pursue you know pursue things for their own sake do things that interest them. and that's the way forward otherwise we're all sort of treadmill and i think. you're right they'll be more and more crises as a result of it no drop it's good ol ski thank you. i never thought i could earn a living this way. natale issue of oil is a norm or should just small arms so there's a lot almost machine building ploy and a lot of the us lost count of all the weapons she's fired over the past twelve
