The Political Significance of the Economic Crisis

A Christmas lecture by Professor Frank Furedi, organised by the Institute of Ideas.

The financial crisis and recession have taken the world by surprise. The uncertain and sometimes contradictory response of the political class has already worsened the character of the crisis, and a widespread unwillingness to face up to its seriousness makes it all the more difficult to resolve. How is the situation likely to develop in 2009, and how should we respond?

Lecture by Frank Furedi, professor of sociology, University of Kent at Canterbury; author, Invitation to Terror, Where have all the intellectuals gone?, The Politics of Fear
