2:30 pm
crisis builds could ask you first would you explain to me in layman's terms what the government is doing to mend the economy and why you think it's not working well i don't think they're doing very much to mend the economy i think their policies of made things worse. the sad fact is that the british economy has been shrinking slowly almost for a year now rather like a very slowly leaking balloon and the government of been trying in one or two small ways to give it a bit of a stimulus but i think they're quite new initiatives and it's too early to say how much effect they'll have but in general i don't think they will have very much effect and so i don't think at the moment they're doing anything very much to help because there's an awful lot of talk about prioritizing the economy and it's the main thing that we have to work on but then on the same time you say that not very much has been done at all one thing is that they're blaming everyone but
2:31 pm
themselves first of all it was it was the euro crisis then it was the high high commodity rise in commodity prices and so they claim that the policy of a sterile should bring about the recovery but that it's been derailed by these unfortunate acts shocks but the policy of a sterile is basically wrong when there's a lack of private sector demand when banks aren't lending when businesses don't want to borrow when people are cutting down their spending because they want to reduce their debt when the government then adds to that sort of downward pressure on spending then it's no surprise that the economy isn't growing is does that come from an inherent misunderstanding of how economies actually work on the government's part so i do think it comes from a misunderstanding of how economies work you see i think. the coalition came into
2:32 pm
office with the belief which was often expressed by george osborne that as soon as asperity was seen to be working as soon as the government committed itself to a credible plan of deficit reduction everything else would perk up 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 businessmen that cause 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 hits the rates presumably that means that during this recess and the gap between
2:33 pm
the rich and the poor 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 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 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 one of your colleagues an economist called james keene has to do. it is
2:34 pm
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 should 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 that 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 increase their spending and 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
2:35 pm
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 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 as ineffective as one thinks they may be then i think his chances of winning the next election 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 if they're feeling better about the economy they're. feeling better about their prospects here
2:36 pm
feeling better go about getting jobs and feeling better about getting more income then i think he'll benefit from that and their 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 as a result of that or is it a sign 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 enjoy life more and he thought hours of work over time would shrink as real got richer but that assume that we wouldn't fall into these holes that you know the progress would be steady and you wouldn't have any more slumps but we're in we're
2:37 pm
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 and our long run prospects one of the things that the railed keynes's theory is this consumerism that we've all fallen under 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 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
2:38 pm
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 among people who want to work and also make sure there's more leisure so that 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
2:39 pm
think you're right they'll be more and more crises as a result of it you know drop it's good else can thank. you. if you're passing through rushes to be a region you really can work on the wild side. thousands of kilometers of unspoiled countryside make up an area where it's still possible to live off the land and enterprising locals so the fruits of the forest by the side of nearly every road. such spectacular scenery makes it a paradise for fisherman and provides a business opportunity for hunters. going on he has been hunting for more than thirty years and works for a company providing expeditions for tourists this season ducks are on the menu of.

hunters or bought from zoos have a second chance at life and conservationists have a unique opportunity to observe them these walls are all around four months old and they'll stay in this area for up to three years then most will go back to the wild for good just viewing them from the car was an experience in itself but then after a bit of a bumpy ride came an opportunity i just couldn't pass up. this is what i was hoping for when i heard i was coming to a place called wolf island a chance to get close and personal with the locals and it's these guys going to act as pasta parents for the next generation will come here using the old walls as surrogate parents has already proved a successful technique. every year i place infant wolves with one year old wolf cubs his parental instinct is totally shaped and they take them as their own cubs it's an important part of the world's development and a major factor in the success of
2:42 pm
a project which has seen more than twenty generations of cubs grow up here it's going to continue to take time and money to rehabilitate the wolf's reputation in russia. but the keepers here hope their research and dedication mean that wolf island remains a place where visitors can truly understand the cool of the wild. wild . california desert offers an air show and an issue museum was about you. but the residents never profited from the performances you don't see him coming our signature there and you look up and there's one track and i knew he alpha beta gamma he was all the the fine now trying to treat his leg i went out there know
